Looks like everyone is getting what they wanted, and there will be a rematch. According to Dana White's twitter, Nick wanted a rematch immediately after the fight and Carlos agreed to the rematch today. The press conference will be on Friday. Glad the UFC brass realized this fight needed to happen while GSP was still on the rack.

Condit's management originally said they were going to wait on St-Pierre.. but after a massive fan backlash I'm sure they realized how much that would hurt Carlos'es reputation, so they changed their tune.

I thought the decision could have gone either way, but was leaning towards Carlos.

I think he will take it again, nick can press all he wants, but he needs to outstrike Carlos as well

Octagon control means nothing if you dont win the striking.

otherwise, Roy Nelson would have won every fight that he has lost.

This fight doesnt need to happen. Hey Dana quit kissing Nick's but, he lost and he's not as good as he thought he was.

The fans want it to happen so yeah, it *does* need to happen from a promoting standpoint.

So cry enough and you'll get what you want?

Carlos executes another Greg Jackson gameplan and this happens again...

Yeah and when the main event costed $310,000 as a payroll.

Vitor Belfort: $279,000 on his own at UFC 142.

Unlike $785,000+ For UFC 141.

540,000 For the main event of 140. Plus Mir, Nog (575,00) Ortiz, Nog (570,000)

It's a pretty cheap main event really...

I don't think that's the issue at all. I think the issue is that fans (and everyone else) are pretty much on the fence. Half think Diaz should've won and half believe Condit won. From a promoting standpoint, Dana's seeing dollar signs. He doesn't give a rats a$$ about Nick being butthurt.

We get rematches in close/controversial fights all the time. This one is no different.

Cool!

I really enjoyed watching the first fight, and I really look forward to the rematch if it happens.

Machida NEEDS a rematch with Rampage if walking forward and getting outstruck at every corner loses a fight.

I didn't really like the first one, so i hope Diaz can piss Condit off enough to make him wanna fight this time.

True... Rampage won that fight with foot stomps and elbows to the thigh.

That was pretty bad. Even Rampage said he thought for sure he'd lost the fight.
