Demian Maia confirms UFN 22 bout with Alan Belcher

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, Demian Maia will likely face fellow middleweight contender, Alan Belcher at UFC Fight Night 22 in Austin, Texas on September 15, 2010.

Maia, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“It seems it will happen, that’s what I heard. I haven’t signed anything yet, but I believe he will be my opponent.”

“Man, I’ve seen him fighting, once he fought in the same card as I did, I saw his last fight against (Patrick) Cote, he certainly is a tough guy, one of the tops of the division. For me, it’s an excellent thing to come back with a guy from his level.”
