Maia To Fight In December?

Fresh off an impressive win over Jason MacDonald, Demian Maia, it appears that there’s a chance that Maia may fight again this year – perhaps as soon as this December, according to  In an interview with Tatame, Maia discusses his training partners, what he plans to do with his bonus money and when he will fight again in the UFC.  Below are some excerpts from the interview:

What are your thoughts about your fight against Jason MacDonald?

I liked it a lot, it was a three round fight for the first time. I felt more expert, knew how to manage a position on the right time and it was very important to me.

Were you worried some time in the fight?

Actually, I got worried. He’s one of the top guys in my division, I read on an American magazine that he was a Top 5, but I was only thinking about fighting because the submission would come. I wanted to control the position and submit. And it was the best submission of the night. The fight was one of the best, it was cool.

Do you have plans for this extra money?

Man, I do… I’ll start to build my house and was looking for a money to buy a flat to my mother, and I’ll invest my money in training. I’ll pay my coaches and travel to Las Vegas , to train with Wanderlei Silva too.

What’s the importance of training with Rafael Alejarra and Wanderlei Silva to help you to win?

I trained with Alejarra for a long time, more than two months in Vegas, and then we came to to train here too. Wanderlei helped me a lot too, and Alejarra is great, put me in shape for the fight, he’s the best physical professional… Wanderlei spoke a lot with me about technical stuff, his experience in MMA, helped me a lot.
