Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few hours away from its UFC on FOX 29 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, headlined by Dustin Poirier vs. Justin Gaethje, taking place TONIGHT (Sat., April 14, 2018) inside Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona.
The co-main event features a welterweight showdown between Carlos Condit and Alex Oliveira.
Condit (30-11) has seen better days inside the cage after dropping his last three bouts to Robbie Lawler, Demian Maia and more recently against Neil Magny last December. The former UFC interim welterweight champion needs a win in a bad way after recently cutting his retirement short.
Oliveira (17-5-1, 2 NC) hasn’t competed since Dec. 2017 when he suffered a third-round technical knockout loss to Yancy Medeiros in what was a highly-entertaining welterweight war. Prior to that, “Cowboy” was the proud earner of a four-fight win streak.
