Hot on the heels of last weekend’s UFC 202 from Las Vegas, the UFC now rolls on with this weekend’s (Sat., August 27, 2016) UFC on FOX 21 from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The headliner will feature a crucial welterweight main event between No. 4 Demian Maia and No. 5 former interim champ Carlos Condit. The winner of the bout will find themselves in prime position for a title shot, although it may be a title shot they find hard to secure with rumors of Georges St. Pierre’s return and Nick Diaz expected comeback from suspension.
No matter what direction the promotion decides to go in their talented 170-pound division, all Maia and Condit can do to further their cause is win one of the biggest bouts of their respectively decorated careers, so it’s going to be a high stakes clash of the Brazilian’s legendary submission talent vs. Condit’s diverse, nonstop Muay Thai motor.
The UFC just released the traditional “Road to the Octagon” video segment for the card. Watch the full Maia vs. Condit video here:
