"Georges St-Pierre is part of Jackson's camp so I don't want to see him lose his title. But, on the other hand, I would rather fight Diaz for a couple different reasons. Mainly the fact that he's not a team mate of mine so I'd like to bypass that whole... you know, any complications that would arise and also I've wanted to fight Diaz for a really long time. I think a fight between Diaz would be a very entertaining fight for the fans."

-- UFC 137 on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada will determine the future of the welterweight division. That's because Georges St. Pierre will defend his 170-pound title against former Strikeforce king Nick Diaz in the main event of the evening, while Carlos Condit will do battle with B.J. Penn in the co-main event. That's four of the deadliest fighters on the planet all competing in the same Octagon on the same night. It's not unreasonable to think that the winners and losers will be paired off against one another and when asked how he would like things to shake out, Condit told he would rather go on to fight Diaz than St. Pierre if he is to defeat Penn. That's partially because "Rush" is a teammate of his but also because he's been wanting a piece of the Stockton slugger for some time now. With the fatal four-way coming up this Halloween weekend, what is the most desirable outcome for you, Maniacs?
