Carlos Condit's team upset with St. Pierre, not the UFCPosted on October 31, 2011, 09:53 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Following UFC 137, UFC President Dana White made the announcement that Georges St. Pierre was going to fight Nick Diaz and not Carlos Condit when he recovers from the injury that knocked him from the October 29 card.
St. Pierre, according to White, was incensed by Diaz’s actions after Diaz had defeated BJ Penn in the main event of UFC 137. According to White, Condit agreed to step aside so that the St. Pierre versus Diaz fight could take place.
Condit’s manager Malki Kawa appeared on Monday’s edition of the MMA Hour and said, that while the idea that Condit just stepped aside was not true, he and his client were not upset with the UFC, but with St. Pierre. “I could understand them coming to us like that. The issue with the whole 'he decided to step aside,' obviously, that wasn't the case. There was no just stepping aside. There was a little bit more than that. It's going to take more than that. I think we're way more upset with Georges and the way Georges handled it than we are with the way Dana presented it or anything like that." - for more see MMAFighting.com
