Condit accepts rematch with Diaz

[The Underground]

Sources close to the deal just now confirmed with The Underground that Carlos Condit has accepted a rematch with Nick Diaz for the interim welterweight title.

Condit said 'Yes, I accept the rematch' and will be in Las Vegas on Thursday to finalize the deal with the UFC.

This past Saturday, Diaz and Condit fought to a five round decision, a decision that went in the favor of Condit. Diaz, along with many fans, fighters, and media had thought he had done enough to win a decision, but all three judges scored the bout for Condit.

At the post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White said there was a possibility a rematch could be made, but it seemed unlikely as Diaz had said post-bout that he was retiring from fighting and earlier today Condit's camp said they were not interested in a rematch.

It's unclear at this time as to when the rematch will take place, but it looks like the fans got what they asked for.

 Does this mean if Nick wins Carlos will get the rubber match if Diaz beats GSP, or that Carlos will get the first title shot if GSP wins?

Everyone is so excited...
Yet complained about paying for the PPV...
Said how boring the fight was...
Never want to buy another PPV with Condit on it again.

If you hated it so much, you really want to see it again?

Same fight, same result.

If you scored in-octagon talking, diaz would be p4p the best. In reality, it means jack shit when your being punched and kicked.

p.s. You know if the situation was reversed Diaz wouldnt return the favor.... credit to Carlos.

Wonder how deep Dana reached in his pocket book for this one. Either way good! And I expect it to look the same unless Diaz practices cutting him off or remembers about that BJJ thing before the final rounds. Phone Post

 I hope this is not true.  The rematch isn't going to be any different.
