UFC Welterweight Rick Story

Rick Story (Pictured) will fight Demian Maia at UFC 153. How do we know this? Because Story just announced the welterweight scrap on his Twitter account.

Story manged to snap his two-fight skid last month by posting a unanimous decision win over Brock Larson. Prior to that, “Horror” had dropped decisions to Martin Kampmann and Charlie Brenneman, respectively.

It took Maia all of 47 seconds to beat Dong Hyun Kim in his welterweight debut. The Korean suffered a “freak injury” in the opening ticks of their UFC 148 matchup, giving Maia the easy W.

UFC 153 takes place October 13th inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Here are the athletes expected to perform in Brazil:

Cezar “Mutante” Ferreira vs. TBD

Joey Gambino vs. Diego Brandao

Sergio Moraes vs. Renee Forte

Demian Maia vs. Rick Story

Cristiano Marcello vs. Reza Madadi

Rony “Jason” Bezerra vs. Sam Sicilia

Jon Fitch vs. Erick Silva

Vitor Belfort vs. Alan Belcher
