Demian Maia believes a title shot is next if he beats Jake Shields in an exciting fashion

Sao Paolo, Brazil – BJJ black belt Demian Maia expects that he will get the winner of George St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks if he beats Jake Shields in an impressive fashion tomorrow at UFC Fight Night 29. Maia is on a tear since dropping to 170 lbs. He won all three of his welterweight bouts against notable oppositions in Dong Hyun Kim, Rick Story and most recently Jon Fitch. After an open training in Barurei Brazil, Meia spoke to the media and says that he is anticipating a title fight if he wins convincingly against Shields.

“I hope I can get the chance after I win,” Maia said. “It will be four wins in a row. I’ve already fought for the title in the middleweight (division), so I’ll be better ranked. The other fighters ranked higher than me already fought for the (welterweight) title.”

Kyle Noke receives a good news from his physicians after being caught in an inverted heel hook by Ed Herman.

Former Ultimate Fighter competitor, Kyle Noke, received good news after visiting his doctors due to a twisted leg at UFC on Versus 5. He visited his doctors after being caught in an inverted heel hook performed by his opponent, Ed Herman, during their UFC on Versus 5 bout in Milwaukee.

The torque from the maneuver saw Kyle Noke’s leg twisted in a very nasty direction. As seen in the replay, it seems that his kneecap literally shifted away from his leg.

The good news is that, although a MRI revealed only a grade two sprain, his manager – Jahani Curl – said that Kyle Noke will start his therapy on Monday and shouldn’t keep him out of the action for a long period of time. The said loss in UFC on Versus 5 will serve as the Australian fighter’s first defeat since his debut in the promotion. Kyle Noke will continue his rest for the next few weeks, while he works his way back into full competition later this year.

"I'm just now getting back to some light training. I really wanted to take my time and let this heal right, and we're about to open our gym, so it works out perfect." - Ed Herman

UFC middleweight Ed Herman revealed that he has left Team Quest and plans to open a new gym with Ryan Schultz in Fort Collins, Colorado. While planning, he’s nursing his back-to-back knee injuries and looking forward to train full-bore in November. If all goes well, he’s eying to return to the Octagon in the first quarter of next year.

The 29-year-old fighter damaged his ACL and meniscus while fighting Aaron Simpson at UFC 102 in Portland, Oregon almost a year ago. He underwent surgery on September of last year, and got it re-injured during a routine training session four months after. Meaning, he got a lot of time to think while sitting on the couch. Prior to plans of leaving Team Quest, Herman and Schultz were coaches in the gyms’ student program. The two guys hope to open their new gym by October. As for his career, “Short Fuse” is anticipating to return on February or March next year.
