UFC 143: Diaz vs Condit Preview - Page 2
Head to Head
Stylistically, this is one of the most fun fights the UFC has put on for some time. Diaz and Condit both bring immensely well rounded games and unquestionable work rate and endurance, so you can expect this to be high octane for a potential 25 minutes.
These two fighters have similar skill sets, albeit with pretty definitive styles. I expect Condit to try and stay out of prolonged striking exchanges, instead trying to maintain distance and engage on his own terms. For Diaz, the key will be pressuring Condit and get him moving backwards so that he can trap him against the cage fence and barrage him with punches. I don't see this fight going to the ground with both fighters preferring to throw strikes, but if it does Nick Diaz has the better pedigree for submissions.
Nick Diaz by a close and enthralling decision.
