- Demian Maia and Jorge Masvidal could be headed for Nashville this spring, as Combate is reporting the two welterweights would headline UFC Fight Night 108. The event takes place April 22 and airs on FOX Sports 1.
Maia (24-6) had previously stated plans to remain on the sidelines until a winner was crowned at UFC 209 between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson for the welterweight title, but the former middleweight title challenger appears to have had a change of heart.
Masvidal (32-11) is coming off a win over Donald Cerrone that helped him leap-frog in front of several others in the 170-pound division. Previously, featherweights Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov had been announced as the main event for the card.
