Carlos Condit vs Neil Magny added to UFC 219

Former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit will return to the Octagon after a sixteen-month layoff at UFC 219. Condit who hasn’t fought since August of 2016 will face Neil Magny in his return. The fight was announced on UFC Tonight.

Condit is coming off a tough 2016. A fight of the year contender in which he lost the closest of decisions against Robbie Lawler for the welterweight championship was followed up with a first-round submission loss to Damian Maia in Vancouver in August.

Magny has had woes of his own, having lost two of his last three fights, the most recent against Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC 215 just last month.

As of right now, the UFC has announced Dominick Cruz vs Jimmie Rivera, Carla Esparza vs Cynthia Calvillo and Louis Smolka vs Matheus Nicolau to the December 30th card in Las Vegas.
