UFC middleweights Demian Maia and Alan Belcher appear to be on a collision course, with the date of impact expected to be the September 15 UFC Fight Night 22 at a yet to be determined location. The event is set to serve as the lead in to season 12 of “The Ultimate Fighter” and according to MMAFighting Belcher and Maia have verbally agreed to meet face each other that evening.
Maia will be looking to bounce back from a unanimous decision loss to Anderson Silva in their UFC 112 title bout, which took place on April 10. Prior to facing Silva Maia had rebounded from his first career loss to Nate Marquardt with a unanimous decision victory over Dan Miller.
Belcher will look to continue a two fight winning streak, which includes wins over Wilson Gouveia and most recently Patrick Cote at UFC 113 on May 8. Belcher’s lone loss in his last 5 bouts was a controversial decision loss to Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 100 last July.
