Carlos Condit has said that rematches with Nick Diaz or Robbie Lawler would get him back in the cage, but apparently Demian Maia was also on that list.
Yes, recently the UFC announced that Condit and Maia will throw down at UFC 202 on August 20th. The news comes not long after the promotion booked Anthony Johnson – Glover Teixeira and Donald Cerrone – Rick Story for the upcoming event.
Condit (30-9) has yet to fight since he dropped a split decision to the champ Lawler back in January. Since then, “The Natural Born Killer” hadn’t outright committed to fighting again, but said bouts with Lawler and Diaz interested him.
Maia (23-6) continued his march to a title shot in May, by submitting fellow contender Matt Brown. The grappling god has won five bouts in a row.
So, UFC 202 is getting pretty, pretty stacked. In the headliner, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz will battle for a second time.
