In an interview on Wednesday to promote his fight against Robbie Lawler at UFC 195, #1 welterweight contender Carlos Condit explained the difference between Lawler and his former opponent Nick Diaz. Here’s what Condit had to say:
“They are different fighters. Nick Diaz is more of a straight-forward volume puncher,” Condit said. “Lawler is more of a traditional kickboxing style. There are some differences but the outcome will be the same, I’m going to win and take the belt from [Lawler].”
Condit defeated Nick Diaz by decision back at UFC 143 in February of 2012.
Condit faces Lawler at UFC 195 in the company’s first event of the year. UFC 195: Lawler vs. Condit goes down on Saturday, January 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, with live results on MMANews.com starting at 10 PM ET. You can check out the full card for the show here.
