The UFC will return to action on Wednesday, when Demian Maia will welcome Jake Shields to Brazil in the UFC Fight Night 29 main event.
Maia has been on a roll since moving to the welterweight division. The former 185-pounder has used a newfound size advantage to make the most of his grappling in three straight victories. That run has quickly pushed him into the Top Five of the official UFC welterweight rankings.
A former 170-pound title challenger, Shields is now on the outside of the Top 10 and looking in. An upset victory over Maia on Wednesday could return him to championship contention, though.
With another UFC event approaching, it's time to get the band back together again. Here are the main card predictions from Bleacher Report MMA's own Riley Kontek, Scott Harris, James MacDonald, Craig Amos and Sean Smith.
