Woodley vs. Maia title fight official for UFC 214 *POLL*

UFC 214 is shaping up to be the biggest card of the year, with a third championship fight added today.

UFC welterweight titleholder Tyron Woodley will put his belt on the line against Demian Maia at the July 29 event, which takes place at Honda Center in Anaheim. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.

“The Chosen One” announced the fight on today’s edition of “UFC Tonight” on FS1.

Woodley (17-3-1 MMA, 7-2-1 UFC) vs. Maia (25-6 MMA, 19-6 UFC) joins the light heavyweight title headliner between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones, as well as the vacant women’s featherweight title affair between Cristiane Justino and Tonya Evinger.

The contest will mark the third title defense for Woodley, No. 1 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA welterweight rankings, after he retained the gold twice in a pair of fights with Stephen Thompson. After winning the belt with a first-round knockout of Robbie Lawler at UFC 201 in July, Woodley put his belt up for grabs against “Wonderboy” at UFC 205 in November.

The bout went to a controversial majority draw, which went into the books as a title defense for Woodley. The pair ran it back at UFC 209 in March, with Woodley winning a majority decision in a slow-paced affair.

Woodley now moves on to the next challenger, with No. 5-ranked Maia bringing a divisional best seven-fight winning streak into the contest. He most recently picked up a split-decision win over Jorge Masvidal at UFC 211 in May, solidifying his shot at the gold.

The Brazilian has challenged for a UFC title once before, losing a decision to Anderson Silva at 185 pounds at UFC 112 in April 2010.

With the addition of the title fight, the latest UFC 214 lineup now includes:

   Champ Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones – for light heavyweight title
   Cristiane Justino vs. Tony Evinger – for vacant women’s featherweight title
   Champ Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia – for welterweight title
   Andre Fili vs. TBA
   Jason Knight vs. Ricardo Lamas
   Renan Barao vs. Aljamain Sterling
   Alexandra Albu vs. Kailin Curran
   Josh Burkman vs. Drew Dober
   Dmitrii Smoliakov vs. Adam Wieczorkowski
   Jarred Brooks vs. Eric Shelton
   Jimi Manuwa vs. Volkan Oezdemir
   Sage Northcutt vs. John Makdessi
   Renato Moicano vs. Brian Ortega
   Sara McMann vs. Ketlen Vieira

Woodley is too strong and explosive, and he has more paths to victory... gotta go with T-wood on this one

I'm going all in for Maia @ ballerbetting, just so everybody knows :D

Between Maia and Shevchenko I'll get awfully rich there!
Google me, Butch!

I'm a Rousey fan. You may like her or not, but she is an exciting fighter, making her opponents look amateur over and over.

All in on Twood when it happens.

Maia's striking has gone so far backwards since his MW days when he actually had to battle to get takedowns so needed a not shit striking game to get inside. It's like he realised he can just bullrush people at WW and decided 'nah, f**k this striking shit'. He looked fucking terrified every second he was stood up with Mastvidal and now he has to fight the best wrestler and striker he has fought since Rory McDonald, who battered him.

I cant believe anyone thinks Maia has a chance here?  TW has too much power for him, Maia is gonna get KTFO.

maia has been ko'ed once in 31 fights and that was 8 years ago when he would telegraph a lazy left high kick at the start of his fights

i think woodley's cardio is a bigger factor here. maia ties him up and makes woodley grapple for a few minutes then we will have a dc vs rumble situation
in mma's dark age of roids, gsp was the best conditioned of them all. things that make you go hhhhmmmmmm

I lol at this,
lets do an avatar bet, the winner chooses the losers avatar (anything) for a month. 
TW is too strong for Maia. Hes gonna blast him into blackout land.  I respect Maia, I see him as one of the best, but he cant handle the power of TW.  Hes going go for a takedown and hes gonna get smashed into lala land.
And TW just has to follow the same thing masvdol did, I am guessing you wont take this bet after all.
