With the welterweight division slowly passing them by, there isn't a better time to book a rematch between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit.
The future appears a bit murky for the two welterweight stars following a pair of losses at UFC 158.
On Saturday night, Diaz was routed by longtime welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Condit fell to top contender Johny Hendricks.
Since defeating Diaz over a year ago, Condit has dropped back-to-back losses to St-Pierre and Hendricks. Prior to UFC 158 at the open workouts, he was asked whether he preferred to fight St-Pierre or Diaz for the welterweight title.
Surprisingly, he chose Diaz as the opponent he would much rather see again in the Octagon. When asked why he wanted to fight Diaz again, Condit's explanation was short and to the point.
"I want to beat him again," he said.
There was plenty of controversy following the first fight, which Diaz ultimately felt like he won. The time is ripe to settle the score once and for all between two of the division's best.
Here are three reasons to book Diaz vs. Condit 2.
