According to sources, MMASucka.com has learned that Demian Maia (18-4) has found a new opponent. According to Globo.com, Jake Shields (28-6-1-1NC) will be Maia’s next fight and instead of it being at UFC 163 next week it will still be in Brazil but not until the Fall. No date has been confirmed but many believe that it could be in October sometime.
Demian Maia vs Jake Shields reportedly set for Brazil in the Fall
Maia was supposed to fight Josh Koscheck next week, but due to an injury to Kos, the Brazilian was without a dance partner and taken off the 163 card.
Since dropping down to the welterweight division, Mai has won his last three fights, stopping Don Hyun Kim and Rick Story before taking a dominant decision win over Jon Fitch. Jake Shields returned to the welterweight division and beat a tough Tyron Woodley.
MMASucka.com will provide more details about when the fight will actually take place in the coming days.
