Wow, he'll be waiting until around the end of the year then probably. That sucks.

I guess we'll stop hearing the Nick Diaz fans chirping Condit for waiting for GSP.



But probably not...

It's the right thing to do. I think he will get way better during the lay off too.

Will be interesting to see how Nick Diaz fans handle this after their "Carlos is a pussy for waiting for a title shot" campaign.

I think he should have to fight Pettis, but good for him. I don't fight, but I'd think a 10 or so month layoff before the biggest fight of your life might be a bit much. Phone Post

Nate deserves a shot. With all the rematches, you either wait or you will miss your window.

the rematches are causing issues.

Condit's is the INTERIM CHAMPION, as in, he has a belt that he is meant to defend.

Diaz is the NUMBER ONE CONTENDER, as in, he has no belt, but is first in line to fight for it.

Sonnengoat - What?!? Wait he scared homie! Pettis calls him out and he wants to sit out like a bitch! <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>



Nope, Ariel tried to instigate into this and he said he'll fight whoever and do whatever the UFC wants him to, he just mentioned it would be nice to wait since he's been training non stop since he started training MMA. Never said outright along the lines of "I'm waiting for the shot."

 after Pettis admitted he'd RUN from Nate (since "condit laid out the blueprint" to beat a diaz) I'm sooooooooooooo glad Nate doesn't have to face a wannabe trackstar before the title shot.  I think he'd win it but since Pussis won't come to fight, fuck him.  Fighters only

They should just forego giving Edgar his undeserved instant rematch and give it to Nate instead, especially since the fights not going to happen for 6-7 months after the 1st fight if it's Edgar because he's holding it up with his healing up from the damage Benson inflicted on him. Edgar is holding up the LW division with his pointfighting-to-close-decision-leading-to-instant-rematch style, begging and expecting the divison to wait for him to heal.

That'd be pretty weak of Pettis. He'd lose me as a fan if he turned into a jogger against Diaz. Come to fight to seriously put the opponent away or give up fighting and take up marathons.

Henderson won the fight against Edgar and is the champion. Period.

This instant rematch is absurd. It screws the division and anybody in the mix for title contention, it tells Henderson "fuck you, you are still just the challenger," and it tells the fans that the belt (and winning it) doesn't really mean anything. Sure, it was a close fight, but Henderson won (legitimately). He is the champion. Bring on the next challenger (Diaz) and have Edgar fight somebody else close to the top. How about Edgar v Pettis? Or maybe Guida or Bocek?
