The UFC is wasting no time in promoting “UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. Shields.” Just one day after announcing the show’s four featured bouts, the organization released the card’s official event poster showcasing the eight fighters.
Jose Correa Arena in Sao Paulo, Brazil hosts the October 9 festivities.
A welterweight tango between Demian Maia and Jake Shields headlines the gig. Fellow 170-pounders Erick Silva and Dong Hyun Kim serve as the co-main event.
Fox Spots 1 broadcasts the main card live in North America beginning at 8PM ET/5PM PT. No word on whether Fox Sports 2 or the UFC’s Facebook page (or a combination of both) will carry the prelims.
Here is the show’s current lineup:
