Demian Maia Discusses Shot At UFC Middleweight Title

<p>The newly appointed number one contender in the middleweight division talks about getting the shot of a lifetime at UFC 112 when he challenges Anderson Silva for the middleweight crown. It will be a case of possibily the best striker in the UFC against the best grappler:</p><p>&quot;I knew about it last night. I still can't believe it. My manager called me and they asked if I wanted to fight for the belt. I said &lsquo;of course, you don't even have to ask it'…. I'll have time to prepare an strategy. I'm coming from a heavy training camp and I'm in a fight rhythm. I'll let my body rest this week and I'll start the training next week…. I'll go train boxing with Luis Carlos Dorea (Nogueira brothers Boxing coach) for sure. My physical preparation wlll be with (Rafael) Alejarra…. If I say to you that I'm gonna exchange with him I'll be lying. It's the same thing if I say he'll go to the ground with me. But I'll go to this fight ready for everything. It's a title fight and the title always was my dream. I imagined having this title shot a year ago, but I had two more fights and God, for one reason, gave it to me now.&quot;</p><p>Probably a smart move for Maia not to want to bang with Silva but lets hope this doesn't lead to another Thales Leites butt scoot fest.</p><p>Props: <a href="http://www.tatame.com">Tatame</a></p><p>&nbsp;</p>
