#4 It was far too one-sided

The fight between the East Coast and West Coast fighters was simply far too one-sided. From the get-go, it was Gamebred who dominated the fight and his relentless pressure paid off even though he couldn't get that decisive finish.

He won all three rounds and it wasn't even close. While Nate Diaz did get his fair share of offense, it was minuscule as compared to what Jorge Masvidal was doing to him.

How do you sell a fight when it wasn't even close? Stylistically, it was a nightmare of a match-up for Diaz and as Mike Brown said, a rematch wouldn't go any differently.

#3 The stoppage wasn't as bad as people thought

There was a lot of outrage about the finish of the UFC 244 main event. Diaz's cut didn't look nearly as bad from the angle we saw on television. Many people including Joe Rogan and Dana White were all incensed at the stoppage, but when he went backstage, White revealed that Diaz's cut was far worse than what he thought initially.

MMA fans have been less than gracious and the doctor even stated that his office has been getting calls and being harassed. The reality is that it wasn't the worst stoppage and not nearly as controversial as the initial reaction may have made it seem.
