**Damian Maia vs Diego Sanchez**

Demian Maia targeting ‘fun’ fight against Diego Sanchez next

Two UFC veterans want to face each other in the Octagon, as Demian Maia is open for a fight with Diego Sanchez.

After his recent win at UFC 235, Diego Sanchez told the media he wanted to fight Demian Maia next. Maia has now responded to Sanchez’s call-out, stating he would be keen on the ‘fun fight.’

With almost 60 UFC appearances between them, Sanchez and Maia have spent over 10 years each in the UFC but their paths are yet to cross. That could change though, as Maia recently spoke to MMA Fighting showing his interest in a fight with Sanchez.

”I have a lot of respect for Diego, he is a warrior, and like I said on my Twitter, you can never underestimate experience,” Maia said. “I really thought it was nice to see him go against the odds and get the win. It’s not easy to be competing at a high level for so long, it’s a tough game, and he deserves a lot of recognition. So, I would be honoured to compete against him, after all the history we both have in the sport. Why not?”

Sanchez picked up a second-round stoppage win against Mickey Gall at UFC 235 earlier this month, meanwhile Maia submitted Lyman Good in the first round at UFC Fortaleza in February. The win for Maia snapped a three-fight losing streak.

”Fights are fights. It’s a cliche, but it’s true, you can never know how they’ll go down for sure until you do it,” Maia said. “Diego has a very good ground game, often underrated, is experienced, tough, has a lot of heart and has a great pace.

“I wouldn’t underestimate him at all, and I think it would be fun, with a lot of interesting scrambles. He is an offensive fighter, so he wouldn’t just try to avoid grappling at any costs, so it would be fun to watch, for sure.”

Maia said that Sanchez first approached him about a fight before he faced recently crowned champion Kamaru Usman at UFC Chile. The Brazilian is keen on fighting at UFC 237 in Rio de Janeiro, which takes place on May 11th.

Fantastic, fun fight.
Diego should get wrapped up like a pretzel but this could be quite a memorable fight.
And hes proven me wrong time and time again lately.
Ufc's gotta pull the trigger on their legends division, this right heres your inaugural fight.
38 combined ufc wins.
Amost 60 combined ufc fights
15 post fight awards between them
Both men have challenged for ufc's titles and Diego owns the most valuable TUF trophy of all the seasons.
Legends might not be the right word but these guys were as good as it gets without being the best.

Ala Lawler?That'd be nice to see but I think this might be a cakewalk for Maia as much as I really don't like him.

Nope. Just pathetic, lazy, 'pin the tail on the donkey' type match-making as usual.

"Hey, these guys are available!! Fuck it !!" Sean Shelby, YOU SUCK!!

Diego is a crowd pleaser, and Maia is a fucking sleeping pill. What a waste. Diego gets smothered for 3 rounds when he could be fighting exciting match-ups :lol: this is retarded.
