Carlos Condit will be brought in to take the place of press conference no-show Nick Diaz. Condit now will fight UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre at next month’s UFC 137 event.
Diaz missed today’s press conference and also missed yesterday’s press conference in Toronto, Canada. Dana White was not too pleased with Diaz and made the change.
“Nick Diaz has lost his opportunity at the welterweight championship, and Carlos Condit gets it,” said UFC President Dana White at a Tuesday press conference in Las Vegas.
Condit was originally set to fight B.J. Penn at UFC 137. The UFC has not found a replacement for Penn as of yet.
