I complain about there being so many UFC events. And then when they don't have one for two weeks, I'm like a dying guy in the desert. I need sustenance, you know?
Not to say that the UFC is the only game in town (and it isn't), but you know what I mean. And that's why UFC Fight Night 29, going down Oct. 9 from a city I've never previously heard of in Barueri, Brazil, is like a cool spring rain on my brow, bro.
The only thing cooler than the event itself is Demian Maia, the jiu-jitsu nonpareil who will, one could speculate, be fighting for a chance to fight for the welterweight title when he faces Jake Shields in the evening's main event.
Don't just get caught up in that one, though. There are 11 fights going down. Here's a pocket guide to and predictions for each and every one.
