Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has lured longtime welterweight contender Carlos Condit back to the Octagon for a compelling showdown against top-ranked 170-pound grappler Demian Maia at the upcoming UFC on FOX 21 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Sat., Aug. 27, 2016 inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Following a controversial decision loss to Robbie Lawler to kick off the new year, Condit (30-9) opted to ride the pine until he could secure a "Ruthless" rematch. When that failed to materialize, "The Natural Born Killer" started considering alternate fights.
That puts him directly across from Maia (23-6), now the winner of five straight, including last May's submission victory over the rough-and-tumble Matt Brown. No doubt beating Condit would go a long way in securing a welterweight title shot.
