Join Bloody Elbow tonight for a LIVE discussion of the second episode of Primetime. It airs at 11:00 PM ET (dunno Pacific, you may get delayed) only on FX. If you miss the episode, there will be a replay next week on Fuel TV.

Though all the focus is being placed on UFC on Fox 2, there is a card next weekend headlined by a fight between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit for the interim UFC welterweight title. The story leading up is that both men were at one time slated to face Georges St. Pierre for his welterweight belt but due to unforeseen circumstances, neither fighter received their shot. For Diaz it was missing two major press obligations related to UFC 137. Diaz' loss was Condit's gain as he was placed in the main eventing role.

Unfortunately, St. Pierre went down with an injury and Condit was placed in a hold pattern. Due to Diaz' amazing showing at 137 he was again given a shot at St. Pierre's belt only to have it snatched away again when GSP suffered a major knee injury. Because they can't have the belt on hold for over a year, the UFC has decided to bring back the interim belt.
