"UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit" Live Results And Discussion Thread

UFC 143 is set to take place tonight at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Nick Diaz will face Carlos Condit for the UFC’s interim welterweight title live on pay-per-view.

GSP vs. Condit was originally scheduled for the event until a brash Diaz got into the head of GSP with a variety of insults which eventually prompted the champion to request to face the Stockton fighter, Nick Diaz, as soon as possible in the place of Condit.

Condit was than scheduled to face off with Josh Koscheck and Diaz with GSP in February’s main and co-main UFC 143 featured bouts. However, in this circle of top welterweights nothing ever seems to go as planned.

With the announcement that welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre was injured and out for 10 months Condit was then put in position to face off with Diaz in the main event of UFC 143 for the UFC’s interim welterweight title.

For this first time since Shane Carwin beat Frank Mir at UFC 111 in 2010, the organization is set to put in place an interim title in the champions extended absence. The bout will serve as the first interim title bout in nearly two years.

Use this thread to cast your comments, debate the fights and follow along with the action as it goes down tonight. The Preliminary card kicks off at 7pm ET and the action will follow on all the way until about 1am ET.

  31. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Bruce Leeroy has to aim his shots better… I can’t believe he lost because of those two points deducted but really though judges wtf he dominated in strikes, aggression and the ground. I would have rather Alex get a DQ or a NC.

  40. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Damn! Clifford has a great jab!

  41. NICE says:

    What a fight! Herman is the man!

  42. The first bout of the pay-per-view card between Ed Herman and Clifford Starks opened up with a war of a first round. Trading big shot after big shot, Starks appeared to edge the frame with the more powerful punches. Herman must have taken notice because he secured a solid takedown from the clinch right into side control early in the second round. He then took the mount, transitioned to the back and choked out Starks to secure the win early in the frame.

  43. there ya go guys – I’ll put out little blurbs here while I compile the full results feature so you guys without a way to watch have a little more detail

  44. Blaster says:

    your the man Pedro

  45. Bantamweights took to the cage next in a top contender matchup between Scott Jorgensen and Renan Barao. In the first round Barao dictated the pace and placement of the bout with effective kicks throughout the round. Jorgensen attempted four-takedowns but completed none. In the second it was much of the same until around the three-minute mark where Scott pulled guard. HE was able to keep him there, but failed to mount any type of real offense so he got back up and the two continued on their feet. More posturing and trading in the standup but it’s clear that Barao is the more polished striker. Jorgensen presses the action in the third, but no matter how much he moves forward Barao has his number and Scott’s face is starting to accumulate damage. There rest of the round was much of the same as both fighters appeared content to keep it on the feet. In the end it was Barao who walks away with the unanimous decision victory via 30, 27 on all three judges’ scorecards.

  46. NINJA! says:

    Good fights so far! Lets GO PIERCE!!!

  47. sucks says:

    im goin koscheck!! 1st round KO!!! lets get it Cali boy!

  48. dan says:

    I take it you want to see condit win tonight?

  49. After an entertaining opening two bouts on tonight’s pay-per-view, welterweights Josh Koscheck and Mike Pierce took to the cage for the third bout of the evening. Pierce went after it early with a solid clinch game that kept Koscheck pressed against the cage for nearly two minutes. The crowd booed and they went back to the center of the cage. Kos shot for a takedown but it was stuffed and the two continued to posture for position. The two then traded hard right hands and both got slightly dazed temporarily. As the round came to an end both fighters slowed their pace and the more technical styling seemed to go in Koschecks favor. Three minutes into the second and Pierce has thrown over 100 strikes. The victor is hard to identify at this point as the two kept going back and forth and the fights seemed even. Then Josh scored the takedown with about a minute left and maintained top position for about 30 seconds. The one item of note in the second frame was that an apparent head-butt cut Pierce and he was bleeding from the side of his head. In the third Pierce was able to complete a takedown of his own, but Josh popped right back up. At this point there is still four-minutes left in the fight and Koscheck had his opponent pressed against the cage. At the two minute mark Kos shot for a takedown but Pierce defended. Against the cage the two stalled out and Herb Dean halted the action and restarted them in the center of the Octagon. Koscheck then poked Pierce in the eye and they took a break. With a minute left Koscheck unloads with his hands and eventually grabs a double leg takedown that he finishes. Pierce got up and the round ended. Koscheck took the win via split decision (29,28-29,28-29,28).

  50. ZeroXcuses says:

    Pierce did better then i expected

  51. NINJA! says:

    well, a win is a win, crazy how much Josh gets boo’d !! dang!

  52. sucks says:

  53. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    I had Kos winning by split too.


  54. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    That was a great fight! Roy comes to fight!

  55. In the co-main event of the evening Fabricio Werdum and “Big Country” took to the center of the Octagon. Fabricio opened up the fight aggressively with strikes, dropped Nelson with a leg kick and followed him down where he transitioned to back mount. Nelson, being no slouch on the ground used his Renzo Gracie black belt to quickly work his way back to his feet. A few knees later, delivered by Werdum and Nelson was leaking blood out of his forehead like a stuck pig. Referee Josh Rosenthal stops the action to have the doctors look at the blood but the two are allowed to continue with a minute left in the round. Nelson landed a big punch and dropped Werdum. After a brief stint in Werdum’s guard Nelson lets his larger opponent back up and the round ends shortly after. At this point Nelson is really bloody. The second round opens and Nelson is met with a big knee to the body that drops him. Fabricio lets him stand back up and he just picks him apart with more technical striking for the duration of the round. In the third Fabricio goes for the clinch and he gets caught in a standing guillotine that looked tight, but Nelson had to let go and Fabricio made him pay with more strikes for the remainder of the fight. Fabricio takes the fight easily over Nelson on all judges’ cards 30, 27.

  56. NINJA! says:

    that was the best fight of the night! WOW! Werdum has arrived!

  57. ban says:

  58. Condit Fan says:

  59. mimo says:

  60. momo says:

    has the fight started none of the live bolgs are going.

  61. ThaGreenBandit says:

    A lot more backpedaling on Condit’s part than I expected. Jus sayin’…

  62. ZeroXcuses says:

    If condit doesnt get this its because the ufc doesnt want him to win. he won 4 rounds easy.

  63. Jujitsu Player says:

    I badly wanted to see Diaz V GSP but concede Condit deserved the victory….Great fight.

  64. t says:

    all i can say is good job carlos

  65. Robert says:

    Wow a Boxing decision. Run most of the fight and win. Wow just WOW!

    • wut says:

      Sure so maybe he shouldve just stood there anbd played the Diaz game and took all the shots.Dude thats exactly what Diaz wants because he knows his cardio is better.Get of his nuts ffs Condit scored the whole fight and your hero threw and fit and just quit just like he told BJ not to do because of a loss.Diaz is a badass but just a few minutes ago he lost all my respect after that f*** circus act.Hes butt hurt knowing he cant bully everyone he goes against.

  66. q says:

    Diaz was robbed he had the first second and fifth.

  67. Robert says:

    Yes Diaz got robbed!

  68. iStone says:

    fuckin bullshit…. they give the w to the dude who is avoiding the fight?!?!?!?!

  69. Jpeech says:

    Condit deserved it. fought the smarter fight… plus Diaz was being bitch

  70. dave says:

    diaz has first second and fifth ,…and comdit did not clearly have the 3rd and 4th they were close… tired mma ufc also…u cant fukin win a belt running away from a guy….fuk,,i thought the fights are scored on ring control diaz….aggressiveness diaz,,,and landed strikes close call….what the fuk,,,nik always get fukct …

  71. dave says:


  72. stand&bang says:

    way to run away from the stockton slap condit

    • he didnt run away.. he landed more and did more damage.. condit broke diaz face and spirit.. diaz pouting like a child was funny..

      condit has better footwork and landed more.. i wish diaz would have won.. just to watch gsp destroy him with his jab alone..

      diaz fought someone with similar height/reach and couldnt handle it.. condit had the better game plan.. diaz was too busy running his mouth and posturing .. fuck him

  73. cody.dawson says:

    Condit won that fight for sure!
    i dont know how anybody thought it was close, condit kicked and punched him for 5 rounds, nick taunts condit and thought he won that fight???

  74. Bruce says:

    Condit stuck to his gameplan and avoided Diaz’s attempts to corner him. That’s all Diaz tried to do the entire fight. That’s how Diaz wins fights. By getting guys to stand and bang in the corner of the ring. Condit was smart enough not to get suckered into that situation. It might look like he was running but he was constantly on the offensive. He was nailing Diaz all night. Diaz sez they were weak leg kicks? Well why was his leg bruised the F up, when they went to the ground you could see it. Condit won this fight fair and square. He outworked Diaz and Diaz needs to stop being such a punk and crying about how its bullsh+. He has always had a punk attitude and it showed tonight! “Waaaahhhh I lost!! I quit!!!”

  75. Don says:

    Diaz is a whining lil bitch.

    He was beat all night long.
    I hope he keeps his word, and does retire.
    He is all mouth, and that is where mouth belongs.

    But more than likely, Diaz will be a lil bitch some more, and not be a MAN of his word. …. We call them “boys” where I live, no matter what their age … they do not act like men.

    Condit barely had a mark on him.
    Condit deserved the unanimous decision.

    Because Diaz is too stupid to hit a moving target, we are supposed to feel sorry for him.
    Diaz got his ass kicked all night long.
