Carlos Condit has had a roller coaster of an autumn with the UFC granting him a shot at Georges St. Pierre's belt after Nick Diaz failed to fulfill media obligations. St. Pierre then dropped off the UFC 137 card with a MCL injury to his left knee and Condit was pulled from the card. After Diaz' performance against B.J. Penn at UFC 137 Condit's shot was taken away and he was set to face Josh Koscheck at UFC 143. This morning the UFC formally announced that St. Pierre had injured his knee and that Condit would be facing Diaz for the interim UFC welterweight title.

Carlos and his management team remained silent for much of the day before posting a video on youtube with his quick reactions to the news.

So...another change of opponents. It's been kind of a crazy ride the last couple months but you know, just gotta kinda roll with it. The good thing is that I've been training and focusing on what I need to be doing to win a fight no matter who they put in front of me. I'm really excited. I've been wanting to step into the octagon with Nick Diaz for a really long time. Great fighter. Great skill set. I think that we're really going to put on a good show for the fans. I'm sure everybody's excited. Like I said, I'm stoked. I will be the UFC interim champion. And then when Georges gets better I will be the undisputed UFC champion.
