UFC 'Road to the Octagon' video replay for Demian Maia vs Carlos Condit at UFC on FOX 21

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.
