Earlier today, UFC President Dana White tweeted that UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre will be out of action for up to 10 months with a torn ACL, forcing him out of a planned championship bout against former Strikeforce Welterweight champion Nick Diaz at UFC 143.
Replacing this fight will be an interim title bout, as Diaz will now face former WEC Welterweight champion Carlos Condit on the Feb. 4 card.
Both Diaz and Condit missed out on a title shot at UFC 137. Diaz was originally slated to face St. Pierre, but after missing media appearances, White decided to give Condit the title bout. However, St. Pierre suffered an injury to his knee, scrapping the championship bout entirely.
As both men finally get a chance to fight for UFC gold, here is the head-to-toe breakdown of this interim title bout.
