If Demian Maia needed to make a statement at UFC on FOX 21 to warrant his shot at the welterweight title, he did it.

Maia, a one-time challenger to UFC middleweight gold, choked out former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit in under two minutes of the main event from Vancouver. With the win, Maia has now reeled off six consecutive victories, including back-to-back submissions of Condit and Matt Brown.

Former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis made a stunning debut at featherweight, submitting Brazilian jiu-jitsu master Charles Oliveira in the third round. “Showtime,” who had lost three straight via decision, made the move down to 145 pounds and looked like his old self.

Paige VanZant proved all the doubters, including Bec Rawlings, wrong, as the 22-year-old earned a second round finish with a devastating head-kick. VanZant, who took time off earlier this year to compete on “Dancing with the Stars,” hit the highlight-reel move after struggling in the first.

The FOX main card kicked off with a rematch, as Jim Miller picked up a split decision over Joe Lauzon. Miller tied Gleison Tibau with his 16th lightweight win inside the Octagon.

Sam Alvey, Felipe Silva and Chad Laprise all scored finishes on the prelims, while Kyle Bochniak, Alessio Di Chirico and Jeremy Kennedy earned decisions.

Miller and Lauzon were awarded “Fight of the Night,” while Maia and VanZant picked up “Performance of the Night” bonuses. The attendance inside Rogers Arena was announced at 10,533 with a total gate of $995,624 (Canadian).

ufc 202

The biggest rematch of the year hit the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Saturday night, as UFC 202 went down.

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz can now talk about a trilogy fight, as “Notorious” earned his revenge with a majority decision win over Diaz in the main event from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the early going, the fight followed the same pattern as the first. McGregor controlled the opening round, even dropping Diaz several times. However, the reigning UFC featherweight champion hit a wall and struggled through the third.

McGregor, though, rallied this time, finding a second – and maybe even a third – wind. After the fight, McGregor stated that he suffered a broken foot, as his face turned pitch white as he left the Octagon.

Anthony Johnson took advantage of the spotlight in the co-main event, knocking out Glover Teixeira in 13 seconds with UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier Octagon-side. “Rumble,” who lost to Cormier last year, made his case for being the next challenger with one punch on Teixeira.

Despite being 3-0 at welterweight after scoring a knockout of Rick Story, Donald Cerrone wants another crack at the lightweight title. Following his win vs. Story, “Cowboy” again called out Eddie Alvarez for November and Madison Square Garden. Cerrone earned a win over the current champion in the UFC debut of Alvarez.

It didn’t matter that it was Mike Perry’s debut, as the welterweight scored another first round finish. Perry improved to 8-0 by dropping Hyun Gyu Lim several times, finishing him with his last flurry and attack.

To begin the pay-per-view main card, Tim Means destroyed Sabah Homasi, stopping him in the second round with an offensive attack. Means left the debuting Homasi a bloody mess thanks to his effective striking.

Bantamweight Cody Garbrandt made a statement with champion Dominick Cruz watching, finishing Takeya Mizugaki inside of 50 seconds. “No Love” improved to 10-0 in his career by flooring the veteran and swarming before telling Cruz “I knocked him out faster than you did.”

Cortney Casey began the FOX Sports 1 prelims by submitting Top-15 female strawweight Randa Markos in the opening round via armbar. Artem Lobov downed Chris Avila in a meeting of teammates of McGregor and Diaz, while Raquel Pennington claimed her third straight win in the UFC with a decision over Elizabeth Phillips.

In the UFC Fight Pass prelim feature, Lorenz Larkin dominated Neil Magny, battering and bruising him in a welterweight battle. Larkin scored the first round finish after rendering Magny into a one-legged fighter.

For the fifth time in six Octagon fights, Colby Covington scored a win, finishing Max Griffin. He also earned his fourth UFC stoppage win after forcing the referee to step in in the third round.

UFC newcomer Marvin Vettori kicked off the event with a first round submission victory over Alberto Uda. The 22-year-old Italian locked in a guillotine choke with just 30 seconds left in the opening round, earning his sixth consecutive win.

The live gate was announced at $7,692,010, which is the fifth-largest in UFC history. The attendance was 15,539 with McGregor and Diaz earning “Fight of the Night” and Johnson and Cerrone scoring “Performance of the Night” bonuses.
