Only weeks away from one of the most anticipated pay-per-view cards as UFC 143 headlines Nick Diaz vs Carlos Condit on Feb. 4th from Las Vegas, NV.
The two were both set to originally face current champ Georges St-Pierre. Diaz removed from the shot after failing back-to-back press obligations, and Condit losing it after Diaz put a destructive stamp on former champion B.J. Penn. Following that fiasco, St-Pierre suffered a blown ACL, leaving the belt out of commission for at least half the year. In the meanwhile Diaz and Condit will battle for the Interim title.
