Report: Maia vs. Masvidal Slated To Headline “UFC Fight Night” Card

With Stephan Thompson set to fight the welterweight champion at UFC 209, Demian Maia has taken matters into his own hands. The fighter will be facing Jorge Masvidal at a future UFC Fight Night, claims Combate.

First reported by the Brazillian source Combate, Maia will allegedly be facing No. 6 ranked Jorge Masvidal at UFC Fight Night in Nashville on April 22. Combate also claims that the bout will be the main event.

UFC has already claimed a main event for the Fight Night, with Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov expected to fight in the bout.

Maia is, however, currently ranked No. 3 in the division and is steaming ahead with a six fight win streak. A bout between Masvidal and Maia would certainly be worthy of a main event.
