Diaz and Condit fight for the interim welterweight championship at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas live on pay-per-view.

However, before championship hopefuls step inside the Octagon, 10 additionally fights will take place and each will be made available for viewing.

Three-fight organizational veteran Rafael Natal welcomes the undefeated Michael Kupier to the sport’s biggest stage, while Clay Guida training partner Dan Stittgen faces Stephen Thompson on Facebook.

The FX portion of the event features four-fights including Chris Cope vs. Matt Brown, Alex Caceres vs. Edwin Figueroa, Matt Riddle vs. Hendry Martinez, and Dustin Poirier vs. Max Holloway.

Rounding out the action on pay-per-view are middleweights Ed Herman and Clifford Starks, bantamweight contenders Renan Barao and Scott Jorgensen, and former number-one welterweight contender Josh Koscheck taking on Mike Pierce.

Lastly, Roy “Big Country” Nelson faces jiu-jitsu specialist Fabricio Werdum in the night’s co-headliners with the winner moving one step closer towards the number one contender spot.
