Dana White just released startling news via twitter:
GSP blown acl will be out for 10 mos. Now Condit vs Diaz for the interim welterweight title on Feb 4th in Las Vegas!!
UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre had been scheduled to face Nick Diaz at UFC 143 on Feb. 4 in Las Vegas, Nevada. With GSP out for ten months, Carlos Condit will now step in vs Diaz for the UFC Interim 170-pound title.
Condit had been scheduled to face Josh Koscheck. There is no word yet on who his replacement will be vs. Kos, if any.
This is the latest in a tumutuous series of events.
GSP was scheduled to defend his welterweight belt versus Nick Diaz at UFC 137; Diaz famously missed a press conference, and came close to be thrown out of the UFC entirely. Carlos Condit was announced as the replacement for Diaz.
Then GSP hurt his knee and in the end, Diaz fought BJ Penn. Now GSP's knee appears to be injured more severely than previously understood, and Diaz is one again fighting for the UFC title, albeit an interim one.
