UFC 143: Diaz Vs. Condit Lines Are All Over The Place Early, Though Nick Diaz Holds Edge

Though UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit isn't for some time, odds-makers have already set the line for the main event featuring Bay Area-based Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit, who will battle for the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship. It's an interim bout because long-time champion Georges St-Pierre is set to miss at least a year with an ACL injury, one of the most debilitating injuries in sports. There are some who think the Canadian fighter may not ever return from it, while others believe it signifies his best years are behind him.

Either way, both Diaz and Condit have been slotted into bouts with St-Pierre this year, and neither of them were able to fight, be it due to Diaz skipping some of his PR duties or Condit being lined up for the shot when GSP went down with an injury. Condit has had an impressive run in the UFC, starching top level competition and certainly earning his shot at the title. Diaz had a great 2011, beating Engelista Santos and Paul Daley in Strikeforce before coming to the UFC and putting a whooping on B.J. Penn.

In short, it should be a really good fight. The betting lines thus far are all over the place, though. You can find sites with Diaz as the favorite and others with Condit as the man winning. Right now, Diaz is favored and with Condit's power, it might be worth some action. The current line from Bodog.ca has Diaz at -155 and Condit at +125.
