UFC welterweights Demian Maia and Jake Shields have agree to face each other later this year. The rumored bout was confirmed to be part of the promotion’s plan on Tuesday’s edition of UFC Tonight.
Both Shields and Maia would be coming into the bout after victories in their last fights.
No date or location has been announced at this time. The bout has been rumored to be taking place this October in Brazil, however UFC officials have seemed reluctant to confirm the event despite multiple bouts becoming attached to the event.
