Demian Maia Looking To Return In December

New, 11 comments

Demian Maia speaks to Tatame about what's on the horizon:

"I still don’t know… I’m trying to be back in December or January… I wanted to fight in December, let’s see", said the former middleweight contender, with no opponent in mind. "I have no idea of who they can put against me".

Demian Maia is coming off a devastating KO loss to Nate Marquardt at UFC 102.  He's right though in that I can't think of anyone in particular for him to fight either as it seems everyone worthy is booked up.  Let's take a look:

-Wanderlei Silva is out until early next year after facial surgery.

-Denis Kang and Michael Bisping are fighting at UFC 105.

-Ricardo Almeida is a welterweight now.

-Rousimar Palhares has an opponent.

-Jorge Rivera and Yushin Okami are fighting at UFC 104

-Wilson Gouveia and Alan Belcher are fighting at UFC 107

Ahhhh!  What about Yoshiro Akiyama?  He's coming off a win against Alan Belcher at UFC 100.
