Demian Maia is Still Aiming For a UFC Title Shot
Posted by Larry Csonka on 06.05.2014



- Demian Maia recently spoke about his status in the UFC Welterweight Division and still aiming for a UFC title shot. Here are the highlights…

On His Recent Fight With Alexander Yakovlev: "It was a little frustrating. I tried to go for a submission, but he always took his head out. He defended really well. I tried to submit him the whole fight," he said. "I wouldn't try anything stupid, but when you have the mount you're in the best position so you have to punch him to create space, but he surprised me. He hugged me for three rounds, so I did what I had to do."

On His Status in the UFC Welterweight Division: "I was coming off good wins and had those losses, so let's see. It depends on my next fight," he said. "There are 102 guys in this division, so there are a lot of fighters to fight."

On Aiming For a Title Shot: "The day I stop aiming for the title, I will stop fighting," Maia said. "That's my goal and always will be, but I decided to stop thinking about it. Every time I think about it, it brings more pressure over me, and that was bad. I will continue fighting and see what happens."
