The UFC 143 main event headliner will be a welterweight match-up between Carlos ‘Natural Born Killer’ Condit (27-5-0) and Nick Diaz (26-7-0). Condit is coming off 4 consecutive wins, meanwhile Diaz has won his last 11 bouts. Both fighters have very close records and they’re used to winning, which obviously tell us that this is a must-see bout for all MMA fans.
Condit’s MMA trainer Greg Jackson admitted that the fight between Condit and Diaz would be a very difficult war, saying that he believes the fight will last all 5 rounds.
From Greg Jackson:
“It really is (going to be an interesting fight). You know, Diaz is so tough, and he’s really turned it on this last year or two. He’s looked amazing. Carlos has too, so I think it’s going to be a real barnburner with those two guys. They’re both tough as nails and I’m expecting a huge five round war. I’d like it to go short in our favor but Nick’s so tough, it’s going to be a big five round war.”
