Well, that didn’t take too long. Seconds after UFC president Dana White yanked Nick Diaz from his title fight against welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (Pictured) in favor of Carlos Condit, the company released a new promotional video for UFC 137.
Condit was scheduled to fight BJ Penn in the card’s co-main event, but made the obvious choice when he was offered the opportunity of a lifetime.
“UFC 137: St-Pierre vs. Condit” takes place October 29th inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 170-pound title affair will headline the pay-per-view broadcast.
