"I think I'm the most well rounded fighter in the world. I deserve a spot in the pound-for-pound rankings. And that's what I'm fighting for.... This is my lifestyle, this is what I do. I'm going to be ready to fight Carlos Condit -- he's the best fighter out there. He's winning his fights, he looks good. He's beat everybody, he fights better than everybody. In my eyes, he's better than Georges St. Pierre.... I respect his style of fighting.... I just try and keep it real -- I'm not going to put a fake on you, put on a show and pretend I'm someone I'm not. I have no idea when it comes anything else. I just fight."

UFC 143: "Diaz vs. Condit" is the next major mixed martial arts (MMA) pay-per-view (PPV) event to be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on Feb. 4, 2012 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada

Georges St. Pierre was originally scheduled to defend his welterweight championship against Nick Diaz in the main event. However, on Dec. 7, 2011, it was revealed "Rush" had suffered an ACL injury that required surgery to repair, forcing him to withdraw from the bout.

Diaz will now face Carlos Condit with the winner receiving an interim title belt. It's a big time fight that Diaz declares is actually better than the original showdown with St. Pierre because, well, the "Natural Born Killer" is a better fighter.

Check out Diaz's full explanation, as well as his breakdown of Condit's strengths, in the video contained in the extended entry:
