Jon Fitch-Demian Maia Targeted For UFC 156

An intriguing welterweight match could be announced shortly, as the UFC Brazil Twitter page is reporting Jon Fitch and Demian Maia will meet at UFC 156.

The card goes down Super Bowl weekend from Las Vegas. UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will defend his title against ex-UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar in the main event.

Fitch (24-4-1) earned a win over Erick Silva last month. In doing so, Fitch improved to 6-1-1 in his last eight fights, but scored his first victory since 2010.

Maia (17-4) has won both of his welterweight bouts since moving down from the middleweight ranks. He is 5-2 in his last seven fights overall.
