Welterweights Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit have held significant championships in the past before but neither has managed to procure a UFC belt. For one man that will change on February 4 when the two face off over an interim strap while 170-pound king Georges St. Pierre recovers from surgery to repair a torn ligament in his knee. If GSP suffers any sort of significant setback it’s likely the winner of Condit-Diaz will lose to label of “interim” and become the division’s lone title-holder.
With their headlining bout only a few weeks away the UFC has released a preview for UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit where the “Natural Born Killer” frankly states, “It’s gonna be a dog fight.”
Other match-ups scheduled for the Las Vegas event include Renan Barao vs. Scott Jorgenson and Fabricio Werdum vs. Roy Nelson, as well as in-ring appearances from Dustin Poirier, Ed Herman, and Josh Koscheck.
