UFC 143 News: GSP Out With Blown ACL, Condit vs. Diaz For The Interim Title


Bad news all you GSP fans. Dana White tweets,

GSP blown acl will be out for 10 mos. Now Condit vs Diaz for the interim welterweight title on Feb 4th in Las Vegas!!

The news of the French Canadians injury now puts the UFC welterweight division in scramble. Carlos Condit was scheduled to face Josh Koscheck on the same card, but will now fight Nick Diaz. No word on whether Kos will still be fighting on the card.


Nick Diaz’s manager and trainer responds to bad the news,

“It’s very disappointing,” he said. “We were looking forward to the GSP fight. All of our training has been geared toward that type of fight, and things just changed around on us. It’s going to be different type of fight with Condit. Either way, Nick’s going to come in prepared.”

“I believe he’s better than GSP standing and not as good a wrestler, and [he doesn’t have] as good of a top game,” Gracie said. “I believe standing up, Condit is actually a more formidable opponent. So Nick is not known to force a takedown, so it’s actually a harder fight, as far as standing.”
