The web site ADCombat.com is reporting that the UFC has signed Abu Dhabi submission grappling champion Demian Maia to a contract.
It is believed that Maia will compete in the 185 lbs. division.
There are a lot of rumors out right now about Maia’s first opponent but I don’t want to comment on anything until I hear something definitive. Once I hear something more official, I’ll have news of his first opponent here.
