Diaz was getting f’ed up.

Although annoying I dont have a problem with the doc saving Diaz from himself

Normally i'd agree, but i dont think the cut was that bad. If the fight kept going the way it was then maybe at the end of the 4th yeh, but was way too early to call it.

Was worried that would happen at the end of the first.

Surely Doc saw something we can't see on TV.
They zoomed in on it when it was getting treated. It looked pretty bad ... At the end of the day it was scar tissue and it wasn't effecting his fighting ability

Also, didn't realise they were serious with the gimmick belt

Thought it was just an intangible "title"

I agree. Usually a fighter has to be gushing blood like a horror movie for a stoppage, seems really odd.

Way too much money in the rematch for it not to be run back.

I tend to agree. As was pointed out, Masvidal was controlling the pace so it's not like a Nate vs. Conor issue and worrying about a fighter gassing. We would have most likely seen another 2 rounds of Nate getting beat up.
Maybe, if there's one fighter who could turn it around late it is Diaz.
