The first episode of UFC “Primetime” for UFC 143 was shown last night on FX, which means we are just two weeks away seeing the highly anticipated war between Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz. The winner of that fight will be given the title of interim UFC welterweight champion, the first time that title has been occupied by anyone other than Georges St. Pierre in over three years.
As always this “Primetime” is a great episode that showcases both fighters and their training camps. It also kind of gives you an origin story to Nick Diaz that helps explain a little bit about his attitude toward life and fighting.
