Even though Demian Maia just recently lost to UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva, he confirmed earlier today that he will be going against Alan Belcher at UFC Fight Night 22, in September.

He tweeted; “Confirmando: UFC Fight Night 22, em 15 Set contra Alan Belcher.”

The chance of a fight with Belcher was first reported by MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani but wasn’t officially confirmed until today.

If Belcher defeats Maia, talk of a title fight could very well be a possibility.
