UFC 143 is set to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on February 4th. 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.
