SBN coverage of UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit

MMA Mania's Brian Hemminger took notes during the conference, here are some highlights, jump on over to Mania for the complete goodness including more from Dana White, Roy Nelson, Fabricio Werdum, Josh Koscheck and Mike Pierce:

Nick Diaz: I think Carlos is more of a dangerous fighter. You're more in danger of losing a decision to Georges St. Pierre and your more in danger of losing your teeth to Condit here.

Nick Diaz: (Regarding media coverage of GSP in the build to this fight) It makes me sick. This is Carlos' time to be here and to be a part of this main event. Half of this show is built up around me fighting Georges St. Pierre but I'm fighting Carlos Condit.

Dana White: Josh is one of the most booed fighters alive. Every time we call Josh Koscheck to fight or if we don't call him, Josh calls us. He's always ready to fight any time with no notice. No, we weren't thinking we'd get Koscheck to fight at 185 pounds but when a fighter falls out, you'll get a text from Josh about it.

Carlos Condit: I expect a war. honestly, Nick is probably the toughest dude I've ever fought. He's well rounded and has a dynamic skill-set. We both come to fight. No matter who wins between him and myself, the fans are going to win.
