UFC Tonight preview: Maia vs. Shields
In this week's episode of UFC Tonight, Kenny Florian and Chael Sonnen compared the fight games of Demain Maia and Jake Shields. This exciting matchup of similar styles will headline next week's UFC Fight Night.
Both of these talented submission artists began their careers at middleweight and while Shields has bounced back and forth he's been fighting at 170lb since 2008. Maia has whittled his way down to Welterweight more recently and it's been incredible to watch the strength and pressure that he's been able to create against his opponents in this stacked division.
Sonnen says these fighters are mirror images of each other. No doubt, this fight is going to be a grappling fan's dream.
