Demian Maia To Take On Tyron Woodley, Hoping For Fight In October

Demian Maia is slated to take on Tyron Woodley for the welterweight championship, but the UFC has not announced a date yet.

Demian, however, has his hopes set on October, according to interview with Brazil’s Combate:

If I could choose, I’d like to fight in October. What I heard from the UFC is that it’ll be a title fight against Tyron Woodley, not it’s up to them to set the date. I have a good feeling about this fight. Around the Top 5 and Top 10 guys, anyone can win.

Maia believes Woodley will be a tough nut to crack, but he still has high hopes that he will be able to walk out of the octagon with the welterweight strap wrapped snugly around his waist:

Especially at my weight class, I believes there’s about five or six other guys who could be champions. But the champion is Tyron and know it’ll be a hard fight, but I think I have a good shot against him
