WEC 35: Condit vs. Miura was a mixed martial arts event held by World Extreme Cagefighting that took place on August 3, 2008 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Paradise, Nevada. The event drew an estimated 423,000 viewers on Versus.[1] The event featured 3 title fights, the last time a Zuffa, LLC promoted MMA card featured more than two title fights on the same card.

Background[edit]

A featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Hiroyuki Takaya was originally scheduled for this event, but Swanson pulled out due to a broken hand. Promotional newcomer LC Davis had verbally agreed to replace Swanson, but Takaya did not approve the new matchup, and the bout was removed from the card.[2] The Swanson/Takaya bout was rescheduled for WEC 37 in December 2008, where Swanson won by unanimous decision.
