diet is FAR better for fat loss. read up on carb backloading and intermittent fasting. pick one, follow it exactly.
as for your question, its splitting hairs for most people. do cardio to make you better conditioned for your weight lifting. in other words dont do long slow cardio, do something specifically to help your weight lifting using similar work/rest periods. and hit your weights harder.
work hard, eat hard, sleep hard and you will get stronger with a great side effect of bigger muscles and less bodyfat.

I've had success with LISS post lifting. I prefer to create caloric deficits through training as much as possible. I'd rather not reduce macro and micro nutrients if I don't have to. If you have your diet nailed down and know your levels it's easy to use cardio to manipulate weight loss. HIIT style cardio is highly effective but can hamper recovery on an intense routine. Give post workout cardio a try for 6 weeks or so and see for yourself.

Cardio is a fantastic tool for cutting when used appropriately and spares nutrient sacrifice. I find that cross training synergistically improves both cardio and weight training output as well, HIIT of course and also LISS. I'm not talking about marathon training or the tour de france, just speed walking at an incline or jogging a couple miles 3 times per week or so. If I can burn an extra 300 calories per jog and get to eat blueberries in yogurt with all their glorious health and muscle preservation benefits instead of cutting them from my daily diet I'm a happy camper.
