The UFC Has Been Spared Once Again...This Time by Carlos Condit

Just as in Anderson Silva Vs. Chael Sonnen at UFC 117 the UFC had a terrific fight that was so good, it was demanded by fans to see it again. Just as the immediate rematch was about to be made, Chael however was suspended by the CSAC for elevated testosterone levels, and on top of that he was convicted for money laundering. Imagine that closely contested bout ended with Chael getting the decision...The UFC would have been embarrassed with a this man as their Champion. His title would have been stripped from him and the whole ordeal would have been twice as ugly as it was.

Jump to UFC 143, we have Nick Diaz facing off against Greg Jacksons own Carlos Condit. This was also a hotly contested bout but as Compustrike and Fightmetric numbers have shown us Carlos Condit clearly won that fight. The only way Diaz won that fight was in the eyes of the same judges who gave Garcia the W against KZ. Yes he walked forward...but he did not control that fight. As you see i think Carlos won due to better execution even if it was a rather boring and deceitful game plan to the fans. With figthers twittering that Diaz won and most journalist considering Carlos the winner this bout was all but set for a rematch before GSP returned...Diaz however had to do what he's expected to and test positive for an illegal substance. Now just imagine if we won...The fight between him and GSP being hyped...maybe GSP coming in the cage...promo getting started thinking about another blowout in Toronto...and boom Diaz is out for a year. Glad Carlos won to save us the headache of having to see UFC scramble to find someone to fight GSP in Nov.
