Carlos Condit defeated Nick Diaz by unanimous decision at UFC 143 Saturday night from the Mandalay bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the win, Condit became the UFC's interim welterweight champion and will face long-time champion Georges St. Pierre in GSP's return fight after recovering from a knee injury. Condit was able to avoid being suckered into Diaz's striking game and his gameplan of sticking to the outside and working leg kicks and deciding when he wanted to open up with strikes earned him the win on all three judges' scorecards with scores of 49-46, 49-46 and 48-47.
Diaz was almost able to steal the fight in the final minute when he was able to secure a takedown and take Condit's back. Carlos was able to defend well enough to get to the final bell and get his hand raised. Following the bout Diaz claimed he was retiring from the sport of mixed martial arts because he didn't want to put up with a sport that would score the fight for Condit who many saw as having "ran" the whole fight.
