Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia set for UFC 156
After enduring an injury-ravaged year and a half, Fitch turned in one of the most impressive performances of his career at UFC 153, as he defeated up-and-coming star Erick Silva with a Fight of the Night-winning unanimous decision. UFC officials announced the bout on Thursday. UFC 156 features several bouts of significance in their divisions: Jose Aldo Jr. defends the featherweight title against Frankie Edgar; light heavyweights Rashad Evans and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira meet up; and heavyweight Alistair Overeem is expected to face Antonio Silva, if Overeem is cleared by the Nevada Athletic Commission when his suspension ends.
