"So ... another change of opponents. It's been kind of a crazy ride the last couple months, but you know, just gotta kinda roll with it. The good thing is that I've been training and focusing on what I need to be doing to win a fight no matter who they put in front of me. I'm really excited. I've been wanting to step into the Octagon with Nick Diaz for a really long time. Great fighter. Great skill set. I think that we're really going to put on a good show for the fans. I'm sure everybody's excited. Like I said, I'm stoked. I will be the UFC interim champion. And then when Georges gets better, I will be the undisputed UFC champion."
-- Carlos Condit's glass is always half full and eventually, good things happen to those who wait. Then again, the rollercoaster continues, as Condit has once again been reinserted into a welterweight championship fight thanks to an injury suffered by Georges St. Pierre. Because "Rush" will be out of action for up to 10 months, Condit will now fight Nick Diaz at UFC 143 on Feb. 5, 2012, in Las Vegas for an interim 170-pound title. "The Natural Born Killer" says he's "stoked" to win that belt before unifying it with the strap St. Pierre is still carrying around once the French-Canadian is healthy enough to compete again. A winning attitude is half the battle, folks, and Condit has that market cornered. What are the chances he fulfills his ambitious goals, though?
