UFC 143: "Diaz vs. Condit" took place last night (Sat., Feb. 4, 2012) from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring Carlos Condit winning his first UFC championship -- even if it's just an interim title -- with a close unanimous decision victory over Nick Diaz.
Fabricio Werdum showcased a brand new Muay Thai skill set we previously hadn't seen in a decision win over Roy Nelson in the co-main event of the evening, as the Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace used his knees to pummel "Big Country" and put himself in contention in the UFC heavyweight division.
Finally, Josh Koscheck started slow and finished slower but managed to eek out a decision victory over powerful wrestler Mike Pierce.
