UFC welterweight Jake Shields returned to the winning column after two straight losses when he took on Yoshihiro Akiyama when the UFC returned to Japan. Shields’ gutsy performance over the Judo fighter earned him a decision win, and to promote his main event bout against Demian Maia the UFC has posted the bout for fans to watch.
UFC Fight Night 29: Maia Vs Shields takes place October 9 in Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The main event will be a welterweight bout between Demian Maia and Jake Shields. In the co main event, welterweights Erick Silva will take on Dong Hyun Kim.
