Unfortunately, anyone planning on jetting to Las Vegas for UFC 202 to see Carlos Condit and Demain Maia will be disappointed, as their welterweight contest has been moved to the UFC on FOX 21 main event.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship confirmed the news on Tuesday, however Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press dropped the bomb on Twitter beforehand.

Condit was juggling with retirement for some time before deciding to make the walk once again against Maia. Beforehand, he faced Robbie Lawler for the UFC welterweight strap in arguably the greatest title fight of all time.
Maia has won five straight, recently beating Matt Brown by submission at UFC 198 this past May. He also holds notable wins over Gunnar Nelson, Neil Magny, and Ryan LaFlare.
UFC on FOX 21 isn't lacking star power, with Anthony Pettis making a drop to featherweight to meet Charles Oliveria, Paige VanZant making her return to the octagon against Bec Rawlings, and Jim Miller locking horns with Joe Lauzon.
