Many were anticipating a competitive battle between former WEC champion Carlos Condit and former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz in the main event of UFC 143, and after five rounds of fighting, Condit emerged victorious with the UFC interim welterweight title.
Diaz, who was on an 11-fight win streak going into the fight, announced that he might be done with fighting in the post-fight interview, but what if he decides to stick around and fight again?
In the co-main event, Fabricio Werdum returned to the UFC for the first time since his 2009 loss to Junior dos Santos to defeat Roy Nelson over three rounds.
Other fighters who came up short on the main card include Mike Pierce and Scott Jorgensen.
This is what's next for them.
