“The Natural Born Killer” No. 7 welterweight Carlos Condit (30-10-0) is back in the UFC.

The former interim champion finally got his wish to return to the company yesterday after making overtures on social media to matchmaker Sean Shelby.

In his path at UFC 219 will be Neil Magny (18-6-0), 30, who was also stopped by Maia previously, but recently lost to former champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 215. He is 4-2-0 in his last six fights.

Both fighters are eager to return to the win column.

The 33-year-old Condit’s last fight was a surprisingly one-sided submission loss to Demian Maia at UFC on FOX 21 in August 2016.


UFC 219 is scheduled for Dec. 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The current card includes:

Cynthia Calvillo (6-0-0) vs. Carla Esparza (12-4-0)

Dominick Cruz (22-2-0) vs. Jimmie Rivera (21-1-0)

Carlos Condit (30-10-0) vs. Neil Magny (18-6-0)

Louis Smolka (11-4-0) vs. Matthew Nicolau (12-1-1)
