"We don't know when Georges is coming back yet," säger Dana White "But Carlos isn't going to fight another fight."Från Nick Diaz och hans tränare Cesar Gracies håll har det kommit anklagelser mot att Carlos Condit endast tackade ja en returmatch mot Diaz efter det att han fått höra om Diaz positivt dopingtest. White dementerar detta och svär på sina barns liv att det inte finns någon konspiration bakom detta och att det inte är UFC som ligger bakom det att Diaz ska få en till chans att besegra Condit och därefter få möta St Pierre. Så här säger Dana White om det hela.
"Just for the record, to clear this whole thing up, I was in Brazil filming 'The Ultimate Fighter, I got up one morning, and I called Carlos. I said, 'Listen, dude. We don't know when Georges is coming back. I don't know what your position is, but I think you should do a rematch.' He said, 'I'm in. I'll take the rematch with him.' I said, 'I get back in town Friday. Come to Vegas, and let's get this deal done.'
"Cesar knows Condit accepted that fight, and now they're playing all these [svordom] games like Condit didn't," säger White "Why would I lie? What do I give a [svordom]? What, I'm out to protect Carlos Condit's image? And Carlos Condit won that fight. If he didn't want to [svordom] rematch Nick, he doesn't have to rematch him.
"Condit won the fight. He won the right to fight Georges St-Pierre. He won the title. But I swear to God on my children's lives, if you think there's some conspiracy here or something, he accepted the [svordom] fight."

"Right now, Carlos is just sitting back and waiting for a call from the UFC, With Nick out, the title fight with Georges seems to make the most sense, and Carlos is excited for a chance to unify the titles. But we'll just wait to see what the UFC has planned and go from there. Carlos has always been willing to fight anybody the UFC asks him to face, and that's certainly not changing now."

"I'm bummed out because I think that this kid, because of the 'Primetime,' people actually started to like Nick Diaz and started to turn," säger White. "People who hated him turned around and started to like him. I think he gained a lot of fans, and a lot of people are interested, and he blew a huge [svordom] rematch.
He could have had the opportunity to fight Condit again and possibly get another opportunity to fight Georges St-Pierre. Condit was going to do it. Nick Diaz is still a UFC employee, but nobody hurts Nick Diaz worse than Nick Diaz does. I don't even know what to say. It's just disappointing. It's very disappointing."
