    Got to agree with punchmaster. The only question is whether Diaz will stop Morales.

    Well, I was wrong on the relatively easy part, but we still collect. Gave some of it back like many on the stoppage. Always best to ensure a win with a straight up bet, then add some juice on the specifics, but it sucks bad to pick the right fighter and lose money getting specific. To be honest, I'm happy to collect at all- Diaz sucks worse than I thought- it was all conditioning, strenght at the weight, and activity, bulling Morales into the ropes and pounding the body.
    A draw wouldn't have suprised me.

    The thing with this fight was if we just went by rounds and scorecard, I actually had Erik winning, but I loathe judging fights like that. So, as we were all watching, I was saying after each round, I have it 5-3 Morales, etc. But, by the end of the fight, I told everybody Diaz has to get the decision because of how badly Erik faded in the championship rounds. You can't win a belt hanging on like that IMHO. As Kellerman says, he always asks himself after the fight, which fighter would he rather be at the end of the 12th round.
