Carlos Condit Plans To Wait For Georges St. Pierre, Dana White ‘Bummed Out’ Over Nick Diaz (Update)

Carlos Condit has decided to wait for Georges St. Pierre now that a rematch with Nick Diaz is off the table.

Dana White informed MMA Junkie of the news earlier today.

“We don’t know when Georges is coming back yet,” White said. “But Carlos isn’t going to fight another fight.”

If there was an obvious contender lined up behind Condit, I’d bet we see Condit defend his interim title this summer, but there just isn’t.

Dana also voiced his disappointment in Nick Diaz for testing positive for marijuana and blowing the opportunity to potentially beat Condit and face GSP for the title.

“I’m bummed out because I think that this kid, because of the ‘Primetime,’ people actually started to like Nick Diaz and started to turn,” White said. “People who hated him turned around and started to like him. I think he gained a lot of fans, and a lot of people are interested, and he blew a huge [expletive] rematch. He could have had the opportunity to fight Condit again and possibly get another opportunity to fight Georges St-Pierre. Condit was going to do it.

“Nick Diaz is still a UFC employee, but nobody hurts Nick Diaz worse than Nick Diaz does. I don’t even know what to say. It’s just disappointing. It’s very disappointing.”

Truer words have never been spoken. Nick Diaz is without a doubt his own worst enemy.

Update: Now Carlos Condit says it depends on how long GSP is out. If it’s Nov-Dec then he may fight again.

“Honestly, it depends on the recovery timeline for Georges St-Pierre,” Condit said. “If he’s going to be out until November [or] December, then I might consider taking another fight in the meantime just because the timing would work out. I’d have three or four months to train for something mid-year, and then three or four months to train for Georges St-Pierre at the end of the year. If he’s going to be back a little sooner, I’d probably just wait.”
