Carlos Condit Foregoes Retirement to Fight Demian Maia at UFC 202

Any fight card that lands Conor McGregor is going to be big, but UFC 202, where McGregor will rematch Nate Diaz, is getting UFC 200-like treatment.

After adding Anthony “Rumble” Johnson vs. Glover Teixeira and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone vs. Rick Story on Monday, UFC officials on Tuesday added a marquee welterweight match-up pitting Demian Maia vs. Carlos Condit to the UFC 202 fight card.

Carlos-Condit-UFC-195-Post-Press-750x370Condit (30-9) hasn’t fought since losing his bid to take the title from Robbie Lawler at UFC 195 in January. After losing a split decision to the champ, Condit contemplated retirement, saying, “I have to see if I can continue to do this.”

RELATED Carlos Condit Talks Retirement Following Loss to Robbie Lawler

Obviously, he decided that he could continue to fight, at least one more time, and will do so against Maia at UFC 202.

The last few years, however, have been rocky for Condit, who has won the interim version of the welterweight title, then lost a unification bout to Georges St-Pierre, and bounced between wins and losses in his most recent bouts.

Maia (23-6) has recently been streaking towards the top of the division, passing Condit in the UFC’s official rankings along the way. He has won his last five bouts, including an impressive submission victory over Matt Brown at UFC 198 in May.

UFC 202: Diaz vs. McGregor 2 takes place on Aug. 20 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

VIDEO: Jon Jones Would Prefer Any Other Ref to Big John McCarthy at UFC 200

Jon Jones - UFC 200Jon Jones met with the media at a UFC 200 luncheon on Tuesday and surprisingly went into why he doesn’t want Big John McCarthy refereeing his rematch with Daniel Cormier. He went so far as to say he’d rather have anyone other than McCarthy referee his fights.

Jones and Cormier square off in the UFC 200 main event on July 9 in Las Vegas.
