UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit Main Event Photos from Kelvin Kuo
There were some amazing highlights from the UFC 143 main event between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit. You had it all from both fighters, the technical striking from Condit and the unforgettable trash talking by Diaz. Condit even mentioned Diaz saying, “So we’re throwing spinning shit now…” when he threw a spinning back fist during the fight. Now, that’s classic Diaz.

QUESTION: What’s next for both Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz?
Dustin Poirier looked good at UFC 143. Slick on the ground, and just all around. He was just too much of a match for Max Halloway who just looked out of his league when the fight went to the ground. Once he got Max there, Poirier snapped on a sick mounted triangle armbar. It the arm break wouldn’t have tapped him, the nap would have.
Winning Knockout of the Knight at UFC 143, Stephen Thompson showed the world that karate is not dead. To be able to snap that leg over that quick was pretty sweet. He mentioned in the post-fight press conference that the 1-2 kick combination was dubbed the “Money Maker” when he was coming up the ranks. It definitely held true in his debut at the UFC to a tune of $65K.
