After facing off in a controversy-riddled bout in the Octagon, Anderson Silva and Demian Maia will face each other yet again. And the mediator for the encounter will be Fausto Silva, the host of a popular Brazilian Sunday TV show.
The UFC, greatest among mixed martial arts events in the world, will be the theme of the Domingão do Faustão (“Big Fausto’s Big Sunday”) TV program this Sunday. The show’s team, by invitation from the UFC, followed UFC 112 on location, from Anderson and Demian’s preparations to the middleweight title showdown, the evening’s main event watched by 11 thousand people at Ferrari World. The program features some never-before-seen images from behind the scenes at UFC 112, for the first time held in the Middle East, in Abu Dhabi; and talk show host Fausto Silva received the two fighters for an exclusive interview on his stage.
