On Saturday, Aug. 27, the UFC hosted UFC on Fox 21: Maia vs. Condit from the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
In the night’s main event, former middleweight title challenger Demian Maia looked to continue his ascension through the welterweight ranks as he took on former interim champion Carlos Condit. The Brazilian Maia entered the contest having won five straight. The 38-year-old most recently dispatched of Matt Brown at UFC 198 via rear-naked choke. Condit, meanwhile, was looking to bounce back from a split decision loss to then-champion Robbie Lawler at UFC 195 in January. The 32-year-old New Mexico fighter had gone just 2-2 over his last four Octagon appearances.
The co-main event featured former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, who made his featherweight debut against Brazil’s Charles Oliveira.
The 10-fight event kicked off Saturday with two preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 5 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts aired live on Fox at 6 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card taking place at 8 p.m. ET, also on Fox.
