    Carlos Condit (28-6) doesn’t think his nemesis Nick Diaz (26-8) has earned a shot at UFC welterweight king Georges St Pierre (23-2). Fresh off his hard-fought loss at UFC 154, The Natural Born Killer said Johny Hendricks should be fighting GSP. Condit and Diaz clashed at UFC 143 in February, with the Albuquerque native taking a controversial unanimous decision. When MMA Junkie asked Condit if he thought Nick had earned his shot, he replied, “No, not really.”

    “Honestly, I think Hendricks deserves the shot … He’s been on a tear, knocking everybody out. He deserves the shot. But I can see from a marketing standpoint, (GSP vs Diaz) is a big fight.”​

    Condit didn't get the memo, title shots are no longer earned, they're given.

    Pretty sure no one thinks he deserves anything.

    It's just a money grab for Diaz's numbskull fans. Fortunately we'll also get to see George beat someone he fucking hates.

    GSP has never asked for a fight besides this one, Georges has truly just been a dominant champion and never picked a fight before.

    Diaz fans complained about Condit getting a title shot after Nick skipped the presser. Now they're finding out what it's like when the shoe is on the other foot.

    I agree for the most part, but there's a (tiny) argument to be made for GSP vs Diaz. It was meant to happen a long time ago, Diaz was on a massive streak etc etc. But I agree, he should need a top-5 win first .I can't see Nick liking this from Carlos though

    Georges even said on a recent interview that there's NOTHING PERSONAL about the decision he made to fight Diaz. This kind of surprised me. I guess Diaz is just a money fight. Either way, it should be entertaining.

    How is it a money grab for Diaz fans? We're the ones shelling out the money to watch him fight.

    If anything, it's a money grab for the UFC.

    I think if you're a gsp fan you want this fight. This fight possesses as little threat to gsp as possible for a ranked guy. I seriously think Diaz has at BEST a 20 percent chance of winning this fight.

    Riiiight Carlos, and you deserved it after you ran from him for 5 rounds. Some (me) might argue that Condit hasn't been a "Natural Born Killer" during or since the Diaz fight.

    Don't care who "deserves" the title shot, I just want to see interesting matchups.

    If its Nick, Johnny, or fucking Santa Claus, it doesn't make any difference to me. If Hendricks wins, he'll get the next shot. If Diaz gets hurt, he'll get the next shot. If Hendricks loses, well... he probably wouldn't have done that well against Georges anyways then.
