UFC Fight Night 29: Maia vs. Shields fight card

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

A look at the UFC's first offering for October, as Demian Maia fights Jake Shields in a welterweight main event

Barueri, Brazil plays host to the UFC's latest trip to South America on October 9th. It wasn't too long ago that Demian Maia was seemingly teetering towards irrelevancy after a lackluster loss to Chris Weidman at UFC on Fox 2. A trip to welterweight has paid off massively for Maia, who has won 3 straight, including an easy decision win over Jon Fitch. Jake Shields' UFC run has been considered a disappointment, and he's failed to finish any of his fights, but he is unbeaten in his last 3 and could break the top 10 of welterweight again if he can beat Maia in the 5 round main event.

Erick Silva and Dong Hyun Kim compete in the co-main event, while Raphael Assuncao and T.J. Dillashaw battle in an important bantamweight affair. Reigning Facebook welterweight kingpin Mike Pierce is finally on a main card again and he'll welcome Rousimar Palhares to 170 lbs.

Here's a look at the full card, which sees several prelims and the entire main card air live on Fox Sports 1. The main card airs at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT and will be used as a lead-in for an all new episode of TUF 18.
