Carlos Condit: Nick Diaz is tough, but I have more weapons in my arsenalPosted on January 31, 2012, 11:12 AM by Joey Santosus
Top Welterweight contender Carlos Condit, who will square off with Nick Diaz for the interim title at UFC 143, discusses his opponent, as well as the "emotional roller-coaster" that he's been on over the past few months. Condit admits that he is impressed by Diaz's toughness, but insists that he is the more dynamic fighter and will leave Las Vegas as the new champion.
"Diaz is very good with his hands. He does what he does very, very well. It's not only that he's good with his hands, but he also has just a relentless pace and relentless cardio. Mostly I'm impressed by his toughness. He's got some great skills, good boxing, good jiu-jitus, but it's just his warrior spirit. I feel like I'm a more technical fighter than Diaz. I have more weapons in my arsenal. I just bring some different stuff to the table. I have good movement, I use angles, and Diaz, for the most part, just comes straight forward."
