A rumored bout between Demian Maia and Jake Shields is now all but official. According to reports from Brazil, Maia and Shields will fight in the main event at UFC Fight Night 29 on October 29 at the Jose Correa Gymnasium in Barueri, São Paulo, Brazil.
Combate.com was the first to announce the bout. Maia was supposed to fight at UFC 163: Aldo Vs Jung earlier in the month, but was forced off the card when Josh Koscheck pulled out of the bout with an injury. Shields last fought at UFC 161 where he picked up a split decision win over Tyrone Woodley.
