Rick Story at UFC 139
Add another Brazilian to the upcoming UFC 153 card headed to Rio de Janeiro as Demian Maia takes his second fight at welterweight against Rick Story.

Story announced the fight via Twitter on Tuesday.

“I’m fighting Demain Maia in Rio!” Story proclaimed on his page.

Story will look to build upon his last win where he defeated UFC newcomer Brock Jardine at UFC on FX 4. Prior to that fight, Story had dropped two fights in a row, and now looks to gain some standing back in the welterweight division.

Meanwhile former UFC middleweight contender Demian Maia looks to continue his venture into the 170lb division after a successful debut over Dong Hyun Kim at 148.

Maia vs. Story is the latest bout added to the growing UFC 153 fight card.
