Any time a fight goes to a decision there will be doubters.

Such was the case immediately following Carlos Condit’s unanimous decision victory over Nick Diaz at UFC 143 at Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Condit walked out of the Octagon with the interim UFC welterweight championship, as well as a whitewash of doubters that felt he didn’t deserve the win.
