UFC Pres Dana White Says Condit vs. Diaz 2 Set

Posted on February 8, 2012 by Ken Pishna



Always expect the unexpected, or so the saying goes.

Just when it appeared that Carlos Condit was willing to sit out for several months and wait for Georges St-Pierre to get healthy… well, that’s not going to happen.

Condit instead has agreed to an immediate rematch with Nick Diaz, according to tweets by UFC president Dana White on Tuesday evening.

“That rematch can happen later on in the future. No one’s afraid of Nick, but we have to do what’s best for his career and in my opinion and the people around me and the advice that we’ve been taking, the best fight and the only fight is Georges St-Pierre,” Condit’s manager, Malki Kawa told MMAWeekly.com earlier in the day on Tuesday.

But a lot changed from the time Kawa spoke with MMAWeekly.com and Tuesday evening. Not least of which was an apparent sweetening of the pot for Condit to put his newly earned interim UFC welterweight title back on the block against Diaz.

No details of the rematch or the agreement to make it happen have surfaced, but the promotion on Tuesday did reveal that UFC on Fox 4 is slated for Aug. 4 in Los Angeles. That event is going to need some star power, so it isn’t out of the realm that Condit vs. Diaz II might be tapped for that event. There are also a number of other pay-per-view events on tap from May to August that could utilize the bout as a headliner.

But for now, it’s unclear when and where the fight will land, although White and Kawa both tweeted that Kawa and Condit will be in Las Vegas on Friday for an announcement.

“I didn’t feel like it was all that close. I felt like I dominated almost every round,” said Condit following Saturday night’s initial meeting. Now we’ll get to see if he can do it again.

August? Isn’t there a difference between ‘immediate’ and ‘eventual?’

Six months, I wonder if Nick will be able to bring anything to the second that he didn’t bring to the first. I’m pretty sure Condit will.

Funny how dramatically connotation can change definition, isn't it?

Dumb move for Condit. Why take a step backwards? He has earned the interim belt and first shot at GSP when he comes back. Fighting anyone else before that just hurts his chances at gaining the undisputed championship.

He shouldn't let Nick's crying get to him.

I agree! I think It's BS!

Condit beat him Fair and Square!

It's F'D Up how they keep treating Carlos Like Sh!@ !

I guess they really really want to see GSP beat the Living SH!^ out of Nick.
but guess what? It's not gonna Happen!

Carlos is going to do the same thing again and beat him up even worst!

Actually GSP mentioned dropping the belt to fight Diaz.

And beat him up worse? Who was on the medical report? Diaz was cleared and has no suspensions aside from the required 20 days....Condit is on for that cut under his eye.

Glad this fight is on again!! Nick won rounds 1,2,5.. Even Pat Miletich agrees and his opinion should be respected in the MMA community.
This time Nick will need to not be so frustrated with Carlos running laps sticking to another Jackson "game plan."

I agree, I see no benefit to Condit taking this 2nd fight with Diaz. He won and has his shot at GSP and the title, why risk that. Dana already screwed him over before by giving Diaz his spot to fight GSP, but GSP gets hurt and puts a kink in DW's plans. Now Condit wins against Diaz and gets his shot back so this is the only way Dana can try again to get rid of him and get the fight he wants, GSP/Diaz.

I hope Condit wins again.

What do you mean, "dropping the belt"?
