The UFC has officially confirmed four bouts for September 15th’s “UFC Fight Night 22” event inside the Frank Erwin Special Events Center on the campus of The University of Texas in Austin.
Demian Maia will take on rising middleweight star Alan Belcher in the card’s featured attraction. The contest marks Maia’s first fight since losing to Anderson Silva at UFC 112.
The night’s co-main event will showcase the rematch between Mac Danzig and Matt Wiman. “Handsome” took a controversial technical submission victory over Danzig at UFC 115, so Mac must be pleased with the immediate mulligan.
Rounding out the televised portion of the card will be a pair of 155-pound scraps. Cole Miller will kick off the Spike TV festivities against Ross Pearson, which will then be followed by Jim Miller vs. Gleison Tibau.
The Spike TV broadcast starts at 8PM ET/PT.
Tickets for the event go on sale this Thursday at 10AM CT for UFC Fight Club members. UFC Newsletter members will have to wait until Friday, while the general public will have access this Saturday.
