As announced over Twitter by Demian Maia himself, the UFC has matched another bout especially for fans of slick Jiu-Jitsu and Brazilian fighters.
Demian Maia (14w, 3l), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and gold medalist at the 2007 ADCC, will be looking to get back to his winning ways against Sengoku champion Jorge Santiago (23w, 9l) at the October UFC 136 show.
While Maia is already in Rio de Janeiro preparing for his fight, check out the updated card below.
Further down, revisit the Brazilian’s No-Gi performance at ADCC 2007 against Yushin Okami, Anderson Silva’s next opponent, at UFC Rio. Has time come for the good old Demian to make his return?
