UFC Nick Diaz Strikeforce

In just one month’s time, Saturday’s interim welterweight title bout between Nick Diaz (Pictured) and Carlos Condit went from being a dead-even pick ‘em bet to Diaz emerging as nearly a 2-to-1 odds-on favorite.

Both 170-pounders were initially pegged at -115. Condit is now a +155 underdog to beat Mr. 209 and capture the manufactured belt.

It will be interesting to see where the late money goes as game time steadily approaches.

Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts UFC 143. The pay-per-view broadcast begins live at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
