Demian Maia vs. Alan Belcher to Headline UFC Fight Night 22 in Austin

Spike TV announced earlier today that their next UFC Fight Night event will go down September 15th at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. The broadcast is expected to serve as the lead-in to the premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck. Headlining the fight card will be Demian Maia — returning from his unsuccessful (and bizarre) five-rounder against Anderson Silva in Abu Dhabi — against fellow middleweight contender Alan Belcher, who is coming off back-to-back stoppages of Wilson Gouveia and Patrick Cote. As the press release tells us, "A victory over Maia will elevate Belcher’s chances for a shot at Anderson’s coveted middleweight crown." Uh, I think you mean Sonnen’s middleweight crown, bro. The current lineup of "UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. Belcher" is below. If you have any early predictions, let’s hear ‘em…

MAIN CARD (officially confirmed)
– Demian Maia vs. Alan Belcher (MW)
Matt Wiman vs. Mac Danzig (LW; rematch of controversial UFC 115 fight)
Jim Miller vs. Gleison Tibau* (LW)
Ross Pearson vs. Cole Miller (LW)

PRELIMINARY CARD (reported but not yet confirmed)
Efrain Escudero vs. John Gunderson
Nick Catone vs. Tomasz Drwal
Kyle Kingsbury vs. Jared Hamman

* Fun fact: According to Wikipedia, Gleison Tibau’s birth name is Janigleison Herculano Alves. Weird.

That sounds like an Okay undercard , Now who is fighting on the main card?
Another sorry ass card from the UFC. it better be free.

I believe Belcher will be doing his best human pretzel unless he knocks Maia into orbit with a quick one-two, but Maia took some good shit from Silva and was still lambadaing with him in the fifth round. Escudero loses once two fights ago and now he fights on the dark side of Spike? Harsh buds, bro.

With the recent scrubbing of the Queen of Latrine University Danzig's fighting for his life, Wiman also. In fact, I see a bunch of nearly obsolete units heading to the scrap heap. Fuck it, when people are fighting for their lives they tend to make it a good show.

@Jim Harbaugh Sc...-Agreed, How the fuck is Wiman-Danzig co-main over Pearson-Miller?

Belcher finally got on a poster. About time after all his complaining

I know it is a free card.

But Wiman, Danzig is the worst co-main event ever.

Fight Nights always seem to have fifty LWs and one fight from another weight class.
