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.
Good luck KAPS, hope Nick changes his style and becomes more aggressive.
By the way NSAC is holding an open house for suggestions for rule changes in MMA on Feb 22. I guess they're big Nick Diaz fans as well.
