Now sure, UFC on FOX 21 doesn’t have anywhere near the same amount of buzz as Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor II and UFC 202. But does that mean this Saturday’s headliner between Carlos Condit and Demian Maia isn’t a compelling fight? No. No it doesn’t.
After all, the bout will feature two of the welterweight division’s top contenders, who are also two of the most experienced 170’ers in the UFC. Although Maia isn’t a must-see fighter with the ‘just stand-and-bang’ contingent, he is one of the best grapplers MMA has ever known. Maia’s also won five straight, and another win at UFC on FOX 21 will have him knocking on the title shot door.
