At tonight’s UFC 137 press conference Dana White announced that Nick Diaz will now fight GSP for the welterweight title next despite the fact that earlier in the week he had guaranteed that Carlos Condit would be next in line.
“If you haven’t heard Carlos has agreed to step aside to let GSP fight Diaz! GSP flipped out after what Diaz said and wants him next,” White wrote on Twitter immediately after the presser.
That’s not the case however according to Condit’s manager Malki Kawa who just a minute after White’s message posted up a comment of his own which refuted that statement.
“@CarlosCondit didn’t just step aside. Gsp is choosing to fight nick,” Kawa wrote.
“last I checked “carlos is the harder fight.” So I guess now he’ll fight nick. Wasn’t our choice and def not happy about it, BUT It is what it is, and we’ll figure some things out. In the mean time, I’m sure @danawhite Is going to make it worth his while ;)”
