As UFC 143 fast approaches, a lot of the attention this week has turned to UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and his extreme desire to face Nick Diaz later this year.

Lost in the mix of all of that is current top ranked contender Carlos Condit, who actually faces Diaz this weekend in Las Vegas.

Condit and St-Pierre, who share many of the same training partners, but never actually worked together, came face to face on Fuel’s ‘UFC Tonight’ on Tuesday.

For all of GSP’s desires to face Diaz later this year, Condit had to be the bearer of bad news to tell him sorry it isn’t going to happen.

“Well, Georges I hate to say it, but I’m looking to spoil your party,” Condit said.

Check out the full video of Condit and GSP coming face to face from UFC Tonight:

    Nick Diaz needs to fight GSP. it has to happen. So I hope he handles Condit this weekend. I like Condit, but GSP vs Condit doesn’t have the same fire as GSP vs Diaz.

  • smill0313

    Gsp vs diaz sounds like another 5 rounder. Condit is gonna finish diaz…..then gsp.

  • Triggerman99

    Well other than the cut in the 2007 Noons fight (the last time Diaz lost), Diaz hasn’t been finished since 2002. So that would be quite an accomplishment for Condit.
    It’s not gonna happen, but it would be impressive.

      That’s ’cause he hasn’t fought any of the top fighters except past-his-prime BJ Penn. And the elite fighters (not top) he did fight whooped his butt. Smoking pot qualifies for doping, which is another reason he hasn’t been KO’d for a while.

      • RonnieV

        Well, there’s the dumbest post of the day. “Smoking pot qualifies for doping, which is another reason he hasn’t been KO’d for a while.”

        Unreal!

          Ha ha, my thoughts exactly. If he was joking it’s pretty genius though.

      • bbtakayama

        Hahahaha, stoners are always the best fighters, and especially hard to knock out. They are so fast and jumping around everywhere, just can’t get your hands on them.

        Hahahaha, really? What does that even mean? Killing your brain cells makes you take a punch better? Is that what you are trying to say? I love it.

  • TandmWarElephant

    Condit finished Kim, Hardy, and Macdonald. All guys that have never been knocked out or tko’d so why is this so hard to believe that he can finish Diaz?

    Condit all the way!

  • Scotty B

    CONDIT will shut dis thug for good!!

    • RonnieV

      “dis thug” will not be shut

    • MikeMc1983

      Thugs around the world are now pissed off being grouped in with Nick Diaz. You really should have more respect for real thugs. Not guys trying to be one, thinking that Stockton is the home of hardcore. ;)

  • Scotty B

    I agree with you TandmWarElephant.. Condit always find ways to finish opponent even the unthinkable.. dont forget he also defeat JAKE ELLENBERGER..

  • alhmiel

    just cut diaz in the eyes and let him bleed. Could there be a more despicable person on earth than Diaz? bet diaz is single. what a worm.

    • RonnieV

      hmmm…. I’m willing to bet you are single

    • bbtakayama

      Haha did he molest you?

      Come on Ahmad, arabs should know a thousand more despicable people than Diaz :)

  • Triggerman99

    It’s hard to believe Diaz will be finished because he just doesn’t get finished. People have been saying the Diaz brothers are gonna get knocked out in before practically every fight, and it never happens. They are practically impossible to put away. Nick took Paul Daley’s best shots and not only survived them, but ended up KOing Daley for the first time in his career. Everyone thought BJ was gonna destroy Diaz, then Diaz went on to beat the pi$$ out of him. I’m not saying Diaz is definitely gonna win, but I am saying he’s not getting finished.

    side note- It’s funny to me that BJ came off a draw with Fitch and everyone said Diaz didn’t have a chance, but then Diaz wins, and suddenly it’s because BJ is over the hill. Riiiiiiiight….

    • pooby

      Condit hasn’t been finished since ’06, and he has never been KO’d or TKO’d in 32 fights.

      I consider it a pretty even fight between two badass fighters who always bring it. I’m guessing it is an all out war until the 4th or 5th round, then Condit’s gas tank will be running low and Diaz will take over. I’m guessing Diaz won’t get the finish, but Condit will be in survival mode the last 10 minutes and lose the decision.

      Definitely the makings for FOTY.

      • RonnieV

        pooby – have you been reading my posts? I’ve been saying the exact same thing for three weeks. I agree with everything you said! Condit has to end it in the two first rounds in order for him to win. After that, it’s all Diaz! Condit has the skills to surprise some folks, but I’m a Diaz fan, and I will always go for my boy! Regardless, this has the makings of Fight of the Year! Pray for no early stoppages, because both these guys can take a punch.

        • Triggerman99

          Yep. That’s the only thing I am afraid of; an early stoppage of some sorts. That’s really the only way I can see that this fight doesn’t go the distance, because neither guy is gonna quit. Hopefully Diaz doesn’t get a bad cut that calls for a doctor stoppage. Definitely think Diaz can overwhelm Condit later on, but it’s gonna be pretty for the first 3 rounds or so.

  • BlackDog2009

    does Condit hit hard? yep. But so do Evangelista Santos, Scott Smith, Bobby Lawler, Paul Daley and BJ Penn and they gave Diaz their best shots… and Diaz beat them all… not only beat them… he BEAT them! know what i mean.

  • maddawgmar

    Fedor hadn’t lost a fight, minus a bogus ref stoppage, then gets submitted by Werdum. Velasquez hadn’t lost a fight then gets KO’d by JDS. Big Nog had never been submitted, then get his arm broke by Mir. To say Diaz won’t get stopped jus because he hadn’t yet is ignorant. Anything can happen when that gate shuts. If ther is someone to STOP Diaz it’s Condit. GSP won’t, he’ll jus beat him up for five boring rounds. Jus wait and find out how it plays out in the cage. None of us are analysts, except in our own minds, so stop acting like you can predict how it’s gonna go down.

    • Triggerman99

      Yeah guys, because that’s what chat forums are for; to not discuss fight outcomes and scenarios, and just shut up and wait and see what happens and make no predictions whatsoever and wait silently until it’s over.
      Shame on us all!!!!

      • maddawgmar

        Calm down, that was intended for the jackasses who try to argue back and forth, no he is gonna win, no your stupid he is gonna win. Put your opinion on here and let it be that. No need to try to act like you know more than this guy. This back and forth BS jus makes everyone involved look like idiots.

        • Triggerman99

          OK, but in all fairness, you did call my comment “ignorant”.
          But I agree with you; it’s about discussion, not calling each other names because you are rooting for different guys. But on the other hand, if I state my opinion, and someone tells me I’m wrong, I’m gonna do my best to try and convince them why I feel I’m right. Otherwise, why would I bother posting here? Just to see my words in print?
