I heard this fight proposed after Condit's win over Dong Hyun Kim @UFC132. I can't believe that 26/27 Condit victories have been finishes. Obviously, Nick always goes for the finish. If/when this fight happens, it better be a 5-rounder.

Who ya got?

Can someone please add poll?

I have been screaming for Penn/Diaz and Condit/Diaz for a couple years.

I got Diaz winning simply on volume and variety of strikes but I love the idea and we all win with that fight.

This would be a treat to MMA history.

I wish we could see both of them fight each other at least 3 times.

I'd be rooting for The NBK.

Condit wins this fight. I think skill for skill they are pretty much the same fighter. But Condit has Greg Jackson to work strategy. Condit more than cancels out Diaz's BJJ and his striking is on par. I say Condit stops Diaz. Diaz has taken a large amount of punishment through his career and after absorbing that many blows to the head everyone's chin disappears at some time. Just ask Liddell.

Would be a great all time fight.

They are both good on the ground. Both have good standup. Condit is more diverse with kicks and knees while nick's hands are far superior. They both also have great cardio and length. I dont see either subbing the other. Neither has great td's or tdd, Carlos could get nick down and win on points but i see them standing. Carlos could pose some problems with his kick and his diverse attack, but imo Nick keeps hitting and eventually overwhelms him in the 3rd or 4th. This would have to be a 5 round fight.


Id love to see both of them fight bj as well. Unfortunately i see them suffering the same fate against GSP. They both can out-strike him and are better on the ground but will get taken down for 5 rounds.

This is where i disagree, sure we know GSP has some of the best if not the best takedowns in mma; but the boy has great striking too. I feel like GSP could stand with either guy but would choose to mix it up and keep his opponents guessing (as he does so well) in route to a lopsided UD. just my $.02

Maybe. I could see him mixing it up well with Condit, not beating him but holding his own. But the dangers would make him keep taking it down. He could use kicks well against nick but if he tried to trade hands he would get lit up.
