Nick Diaz vs Carlos Condit UFC 143 fight video simulation

Want to know who wins the UFC 143 main event between Nick Diaz vs. Carlos Condit, which is scheduled to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Feb. 4, 2012?

Look no further than the UFC Undisputed 3 video game.

The boys over at THQ put together this video simulation to promote the upcoming interim welterweight title fight that will determine the top dog in the division until reigning 170-pound champion Georges St. Pierre returns to mixed martial arts (MMA) action from recent knee surgery.

And if life imitates art, St. Pierre's wish to fight Diaz later this year will be granted.

That's because Diaz -- a talented Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt who prefers to mix it up with his opponents in the striking department -- will get taken down in the second round, work for submissions off his back and ultimately tapout the "Natural Born Killer" with a triangle choke.

Here are a handful of notable stats from the above simulation, which is the culmination of 25 matches:

-- Diaz won by technical knockout with strikes to the body once
-- Diaz defended 40 percent of Condit's takedown attempts
-- Condit won by technical knockout with strikes to the leg once
-- Diaz and Condit threw a combined total of 6,675 punches
-- Condit shot for a takedown within the first round in all matches
-- Diaz won by submission in seven matches

Anyone think these stats will come close to the real thing in "Sin City" this weekend? For more on the "Diaz vs. Condit" match up click here.
