as of 7:52 this past night, the soap opera has swung back the other way:
http://espn.go.com/mma/story/_/id/75...-carlos-condit

i didn't understand what condit's motivation was for a rematch, anyway. he already earned the win in everyones eyes who mattered, had little to gain, and much to lose (his guaranteed shot at GSP).

these guys only fight a couple times a year anyway, so it makes more sense in the scheme of things to do the GSP-condit fight followed by GSP - diaz regardless of the winner of the title fight. then, nothing preventing condit from fighting diaz later on when they've both improved / evolved. they're both young enough, so i don't see the problem.

of course TBH, another way of saying all that is that i don't give a crap about the fans who think diaz won...

when he first tested positive he got suspended for 6 months. so i assume he'll get a longer and harsher penalty this time around

Aight just to get some more discussion going in here besides random news updates, I got a question/prediction contest. Me and my boy were arguing about it last night at the bar. Which current champ loses their belt first? Who holds it the longest?

Bantamweight - Domonick Cruz (Next opponent: Urijah Faber)
Featherweight - Jose Aldo (Next opponent: TBD)
Lightweight - Frankie Edgar (Next opponent: Ben Henderson)
Welterweight - Georges St-Pierre (Next opponent: Carlos Condit Interim)
Middleweight - Anderson Silva (Next opponent: Chael Sonnen)
Light Heavyweight - Jon Jones (Next opponent: Rashad Evans)
Heavyweight - Junior Dos Santos (Next opponent: Alistair Overeem)

I could see Rashad beating Jon Jones and Overeem beating Dos Santos. I think the other champs are safe for some time.

Think JDS and Silva have the best chance of losing to his next opponent. Think Jones and Aldo will have their belts for a while.

Oooooh, there's a big one. I was thinking they'd do Mir-Werdum but I guess this makes sense since who would Velasquez fight? I'm a Frank Mir fan and glad he's back in the title hunt but really, I'd be shocked if he wins this. I put my money on a Cain TKO.

The question is will Mir's BJJ intimidate Cain in terms of shooting for the take down. In stand up its gong to be interesting, Mir has show huge improvement, and after getting BLASTED by JDS I have a feeling Cain's stand up will be even crisper than it was before. This one is two hard to call, but I bet it gets finished.
