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.”

Jake Shields expects GSP to win against Johny Hendricks, he also said that he would love to get another shot at the champion

Former welterweight contender Jake Shields knows what it’s like is to face George St-Pierre in the octagon. He was soundly beaten by the welterweight champion in their uneventful matchup in 2011. It was considered as an off night for GSP but he failed to take advantage and lost a lopsided decision.

Shields believes that Johny Hendricks will suffer the same fate once the current no.1 contender and GSP faces each other in the main event of UFC 167.

“St-Pierre vs. Hendricks is a good fight, I think it’s a really exciting fight and one I want to watch. But ultimately, I think ‘GSP’ is so good at what he does. He’s such a smart fighter.” I think ‘GSP’ will end up using his distance, range – his standup – and end up taking Hendricks down and wearing him down and winning a tough fight,” Shields said.

GSP is a back on training after his left eye's visibility has got much better from 10 percent visibility.

Georges St-Pierre is training again after his left eye healed. His left eye was damage during his fight against Jake Shields at UFC 129, resulting to Hyphema or bleeding of the eye. GSP took a rest for while to fully recover and bring back his left eye’s full vision.

Georges St-Pierre’s jiu-jitsu coach and ophthalmology, Dr. Bruno Fernandez, said that the fighter’s vision was affected by the injury and could barely see things clearly. The ophthalmologist insisted that eye sight was really measured based on the lost field of vision, clarity and depth perception. He also elaborated that having Hyphema is like looking through a really dirty window, making your vision significantly impaired.

Georges St-Pierre was lucky that the blood in his eye has been reabsorbed in two weeks after his fight. Some extreme hyphema might cause permanent visual impairment according to Dr. Bruno Fernandez.
