"Carlos Condit didn't just step aside. GSP is choosing to fight Nick. Last I checked 'Carlos is the harder fight.' So I guess now he'll fight Nick. Wasn't our choice and (we're definitely) not happy about it, BUT it is what it is, and we'll figure some things out. In the meantime, I'm sure Dana White is going to make it worth his while."

-- Following the main event of UFC 137 last night (Oct. 29, 2011), which saw Nick Diaz blast his way past B.J. Penn, UFC President Dana White announced at the post-fight press conference that Carlos Condit had agreed to step down in favor of Diaz getting an immediate title shot against Georges St. Pierre over the Super Bowl weekend early next year. Well, Condit's manager, Malki Kawa, wants to make it clear (via Twitter) that this is not the case ... at all. "The Natural Born Killer" didn't agree to just step aside, he simply had no choice but to move out of the way. St. Pierre was reportedly so upset at being called out by Diaz during his post-fight interview that he wants to give the bad boy from Stockton his comeuppance sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, that means Condit has to once again take a back seat. He has been promised a spot on the very same card in what will be a guaranteed number one contender bout to the winner of St. Pierre vs. Diaz. Anyone feeling bad for Condit right now? Or is this just the way it had to be after the events of UFC 137? Opinions, please.
