Just yesterday, it was announced that Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz were set for a rematch of their UFC 143 meeting which saw Condit take a controversial decision and the interim welterweight championship.
According to Dana White and the UFC, both Condit and Diaz agreed to a rematch, and the bout was, to the fans’ knowledge, being scheduled.
Just as the sport itself though, the business side of MMA can sometimes be a little unpredictable, and now Nick Diaz’s manager, Cesar Gracie is pulling the reigns on negotiations.
Gracie said in a report to MMAweekly,
There is not going to be a rematch.
That sounds pretty cut-and-dry, no? Gracie says there is not going to be a rematch, and he sounds pretty sure of it.
Condit’s manager, Malki Kawa, is set to meet with UFC brass on Friday and hopefully matters will be cleared up.
What match-up do you want to see? Do you hope Condit gets his shot at GSP’s title or do you want a rematch with Diaz?
