Edwards discussed how Diaz tried to end their contest via a chokehold. Credit to SportsKeeda for the below. Nate Diaz recently ripped this ‘wrong’ UFC decision.



“When he [Nate Diaz] first tagged me with the shot, I felt the first shot but after that, it’s kind of a flash, I kinda got back to my wits and obviously, he was charging forward, trying to finish the fight. I was in and out dodging the punches. All I was thinking was ‘Just don’t shoot’ you know, because once you shoot, he is gonna start wrapping your neck up, looking to choke you. Like he did to Conor [McGregor]…the same thing, he tagged him, Conor shot for the takedown and ended up getting choked out. So that’s what was going through my head. Just don’t shoot, just stay composed, don’t try to fight back while you are hurt, move, get your head back onto you. Once I was back, I knew I had it, you know…I think I showed my experience, I showed that I can still take a shot and still have a clear mindset ahead of me,”
