Demian Maia vs. Nate Quarry at UFC 91

Demian MaiaUndefeated middleweight Jiu Jitsu specialist Demian Maia will take on fellow 185-pounder Nate Quarry at UFC 91 on November 15th in Las Vegas.

Maia recently confirmed the matchup with Tatame.

With an unblemished 5-0 record outside of the octagon Maia debuted in the UFC in October 2007 and has racked up three straight “Submission of the Night” victories over Ryan Jensen, Ed Herman, and Jason MacDonald. The trio of UFC victories pushed his record to 8-0 with six submission victories.

Quarry earned a championship opportunity against Rich Franklin at UFC 56 following back-to-back-to-back UFC wins but was defeated by Franklin via first-round knockout. After numerous injuries and back surgery kept him out of the octagon for nearly two years Quarry returned to the octagon at UFC Fight Night 11 in September 2007 and defeated Pete Sell via third-round knockout. In his last bout Quarry defeated Kalib Starnes via unanimous decision at UFC 83 in April in a bout in which Starnes refused to engage, prompting one judge to score the fight 30-24 in Quarry’s favor.
