One of the most anticipated, yet hardest to put together UFC bouts in recent memory finally gets to the octagon this weekend, as the odds-on favorite Nick Diaz takes on Carlos Condit for the Interim Welterweight Championship.
The title is currently held by the injured Georges St-Pierre, who has owned the belt since UFC 83 – and made it known that he’s hoping for a Diaz victory. It’s expected that the winner of Diaz vs Condit will face a healthy St-Pierre to unify the championship.
Currently Nick Diaz is favorite to win the bout with a money line of -225 while Carlos Condit is +175.
Diaz and Condit have little to say. They’ll let their fists do the talking inside the octagon. Both have held the WEC’s Welterweight Championship before joining UFC, and both are reaching the pinnacle of their careers.
Their career records are nearly identical. Their fighting styles complement each other. Heck, they even arrived in MMA at nearly the same time. Now, the ultimate prize is on the line and both will risk it all for the chance to be called “champion.”
The UFC 143 main card features four other matches, with Ed Herman squaring off with Clifford Starks, Scott Jorgensen against Renan Pegado, Josh Koscheck and Mike Pierce, and Favricio Werdum meeting Roy Nelson.
Bovada’s oddsmakers have Herman, Pegado and Koscheck as heavy favorites, while Werdum has the advantage over Nelson.
