UFC 143 Results: Dana White Talks Carlos Condit's Next Fight, Nick Diaz's Retirement

MMA's odd couple -- Dana White & Ariel Helwani -- had their usual chat after UFC 143.

This story was updated at 4:30 PM EST.

MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani caught up with Dana White after UFC 143 for their customary chat, asking the boss what he thought about the night's proceedings and what could be next for his new interim welterweight champion. Helwani actually interviewed White twice, once for MMA Fighting and another time for Fuel TV.

Some highlights of the two interviews:

  • How he scored Carlos Condit vs. Nick Diaz and his analysis of both men's game plans.
  • Whether he feels Diaz's heart in still in MMA and if he thinks Diaz is truly retired.
  • His opinion on whether Condit should wait to fight Georges St. Pierre or fight again before then.
  • His love of Roy Nelson's chin and hatred of his mullet and beard.
  • How he scored Mike Pierce vs. Josh Koscheck and making Koscheck vs. Diaz a reality.
  • Whether Jake Ellenberger vs. Diego Sanchez is a No. 1 contender's fight.
  • Koscheck wanting the big fights and what weight class makes the most sense for him.
  • His surprise at a two point deduction in the Alex Caceres vs. Edwin Figueroa fight.
  • His reaction at a shirtless Mike Goldberg running around backstage (yes, this happened).
