News broke Tuesday afternoon at Jorge Masvidal vs. Demian Maia would be taking place at UFC 211 in May. The news came after a period of uncertainty following reports earlier in the week that Masvidal and Maia would be fighting in Nashville in April according to MMAJunkie.

No word on whether the fight will take place on the preliminary card or pay-per view portion of the UFC 211 card, however given the magnitude of the scrap, fight fans can expect the fight to be placed on the main card.

Masvidal will be stepping into the Octagon following a big TKO win over Donald Cerrone back in January. The win made it 3 straight for ‘Gamebred’, who now sits at #6 on the UFC’s official welterweight rankings. Maia on the other hand will be riding a massive 6-fight win streak into the scrap that most recently saw him pick up a ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus in August when he submitted Carlos Condit in the very first round.
