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.
