A loss is never an easy thing, especially when it means you won’t be able to fight for a title. Last night at UFC 143, Carlos Condit won in an upset over Nick Diaz, to gain the welterweight interim title and will now go on to fight the champ Georges St. Pierre. Diaz was hearing none of it. He made it clear that he should have had the win, and went on to announce his retirement from the sport.
“I’m not going to accept the fact that this was a loss. I’ve lost fights before, where, you know, like, I’m not going to accept that either.
I think I’m done with this MMA. It’s been great out here. I’ve had a good career. You guys pay me way too much, but I don’t think I’m going to get enough to keep going in this. It’s been a good time. You know Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Good job Carlos, you’re the man, bro.”
