With a perfect MMA career after eight wins in eight fights, Demian Maia remains unbeatable after three submission victories in UFC’s octagon, and he’s already training for his next bout. The UFC 91’s most important fight will be Randy Couture’s back to Ultimate against an young Brock Lesnar for the heavyweight title, and Demian Maia will face Nathan Quarry, at November 15th. Against the new opponent, Demian keeps training hard in Brazil, still without a specific training for Nate.
"I didn’t study his fights yet, I’ll receive a DVD with his fights, but I only watch my opponents’ fights when the fight gets closer. I’m training a lot my stand up game like for the last fight, but every time I can I do some BJJ trainings”, said the black belt, that helped Frank Mir to coach his team at The Ultimate Fighter 8. “I helped him there in June and the show debut yesterday. I’m his BJJ coach. As I couldn’t get there in the beginning, and asked them to call Robert (Drysdale) and then I went there to help Frank Mir’s team”, said Demian, that enjoyed the new experience. “It was very cool, different… I never did nothing like that before, it’s interesting”, told the black belt, that remains in Brazil until October, when he goes to USA to get ready for the fight with Rafael Alejarra.
This could be an interesting fight. Quarry can hit pretty hard while Maia's got the BJJ in the bag. I'm gonna say Maia by sub but I wouldn't be suprised if Quarry can somehow keep it standing and get a (T)KO.
So for 91 we are looking at:
Couture vs Lesnar
Wandy vs Rampage
Maia vs Quarry
Kenflo vs Stevenson
and Amir is fighting
This is gonna be a sick card.

finally some news on Maia ! great classic matchup sub spesialist against a guy ho likes to punch peoples faces in. Well Maia has got to work on his standup cuz thats average at best and EVERYBODY can get KOed, espesially someone constantly going for a takedown. However if it goes to the ground with some time left of the round then Maia has it....no doubt in my mind
