UFC Fight Night 29 is headlined by Jake Shields and Demian Maia. The October 9 bout will be fought in Maia's home country of Brazil.

Shields returned to welterweight with a split-decision win over rising prospect Tyron Woodley. Maia's welterweight run has led him to the No. 4 ranking in the division.

Without doubt, Maia's run has been dominant.

It all began with a quick injury TKO over Dong Hyun Kim. After that bout, he moved on to a quick submission win over Rick Story and a dominant decision against Jon Fitch. Maia has become a serious title contender in the welterweight division.
