Demian Maia vs. Top WEC Star Chael Sonnen Set For UFC 95

Joseph BonsignoreAnalyst IDecember 30, 2008

The card that everyone in London is complaining about for not having any big fights just got sweetened a bit. According to Guto Maia on Brazilian Black Belt:

"Demian Maia has already confirmed his next opponent. He will fight in London, UFC 95 (February 21), against Chael Sonnen (which won the Brazilian Paulo Filho in his last fight)."

Maia is coming off of an utter destruction of Nate Quarry at UFC 91. Sonnen just transfered over during the WEC weight class merger. His last victory came over BJJ black belt and WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho. Filho never made weight for the fight though and the belt was never "officially" given to Sonnen.

You can look for Sonnen to be the heavy underdog for this fight card, but it may definitely be a bet that's worth taking. All three main event underdogs from UFC 92 this past weekend won their fights in incredible fashion. I'm going to go out on a limb and call Sonnen by decision.
