Demian Maia To Face Chael Sonnen At UFC 95 In London

An interesting middleweight bout has been added to UFC 95 which is set to take place in London.

Undefeated Demian Maia will take on Chael Sonnen in a fight that could have a potential title shot on the line for the winner. A source close to Maia confirmed the bout with MMANews.com and MMAJunkie.com was also able to confirm the bout with someone within the Sonnen camp.

With Sonnen coming off a win against top ranked middleweight Paulo Filho and Maia riding an undefeated streak both fighters could be fighting for a title shot with Middleweight king Anderson Silva later this year.

Although not officially for a title shot, the lack of top middleweights in the UFC right now that have not been stone walled by the champion are few and far between. Both guys are top fighters and could contend for the throne.
