Demian Maia won’t have to wait too long for his next fight after having a bout with Josh Koscheck called off for UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie.
According to Combate, Maia will face Jake Shields in October at an event in Brazil. UFC officials have yet to officially announce the card, but it is expected for October 9.
Maia is unbeaten since moving to welterweight from middleweight. Shields, a former No. 1 contender and ex-Strikeforce champion, returned from a suspension to defeat Tyron Woodley recently.
