Dana White On UFC 112 ChangesPosted on February 15, 2010, 04:18 PM by Daniel Cassidy
Dana White shares his thoughts on the changes at the upcoming UFC 112 event in Abu Dhabi;
"It’s always tough when a top fighter like Vitor Belfort has to pull out of a big title fight, but we have found a highquality replacement. Top contender Chael Sonnen was not available due to injuries sustained in his fight with Nate Marquardt, so top six middleweight Demian Maia will step in to fight for the title. Maia is an Abu Dhabi grappling champion, a five-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion, and he is 12-1 in MMA and coming off a win over Dan Miller at UFC 109. Anderson Silva vs Demian Maia will be a matchup between MMA’s best striker and MMA’s best grappler."
