UFC Demian Maia

On Monday, a pivotal welterweight affair between Demian Maia (pictured) and Matt Brown was added to UFC Fight Night 87.

The May 14th event takes place at a yet-to-be determined venue in Brazil.

Maia will be riding a four-fight winning streak into the tango. The jiu jitsu specialist is looking to build off December’s dominant unanimous decision victory over Gunnar Nelson at UFC 194.

Brown bounced back nicely from two consecutive losses by submitting Tim Means at UFC 189 in July. “The Immortal” has won eight of his past 10 scraps.

No word if UFC Fight Pass, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2 or some combination of the three will make the event available for live viewing in America.

Here is the show’s updated lineup:

Demian Maia vs. Matt Brown

Vitor Belfort vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza
