    Two Great Grapplers Collide this Fall in the UFC

    Thu, 2013-08-01 08:32 — Benjamin Bieker

    Demian Maia was supposed to face off with Josh Koscheck this weekend, but an injury to Koscheck has left him unable to compete. Instead of finding a replacement, the UFC has opted to hook Maia up in a match with Jake Shields for later this year. There has been no event or date announced for the bout, but that may be because the fight card itself has not been announced. There was the rumor of Vitor Belfort fighting in Brazil this fall, and that would make sense if that fight card happens to have Maia on it as well.
