Carlos Condit has gone the distance with both UFC 158 headliners, Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz. There may be no one in the world more qualified to give an opinion on a St-Pierre vs. Diaz outcome than Condit.
Condit defeated Diaz at UFC 143 on Feb. 2, 2012, to earn a title shot against St-Pierre. He and St-Pierre met in the main event of UFC 154 in November 2012, where he was defeated by the champion by unanimous decision.
Condit was asked his thoughts on the UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz main event during a media conference call promoting the event on Thursday.
“It’s an interesting match-up. Their styles are really different,” said Condit. “I think Nick can pose some problems for Georges, but ultimately I see Georges coming out on top.”
Condit also fights on the UFC 158 fight card that is stacked with top UFC welterweights.
He was originally scheduled to rematch Rory McDonald, but McDonald was forced out of the bout with an injury. He now faces Johny Hendricks, who most feel is the real top contender in the 170-pound division.
