The UFC 263 will be remembered by many, as the event in which possibly Demian Maia he retired. Mixed Martial Arts may have fired a living Mixed Martial Arts legend this weekend. After losing with Belal Muhammad in the stellar, by unanimous decision, it may have been the last of the Brazilian. For this reason, in the networks they expressed a lot of love and support.
In the previous one, Maia He expressed: “I am near the end and it could be the last fight. But, you know, I’ve performed so well in training camp, and I’ve felt so good that I could do one more, a couple more, probably one more after that. Of course, it depends, because you perform well in training camp, and sometimes, you know, you can’t transfer it to the Octagon.
So if I can translate well and of course UFC and Dana (White), they want me to do one more fight, I would. If not, then, you know, it would be the last one. He’s a great upcoming guy. It sure is evolving. He is a good fighter. He has used wrestling, but in recent years, he has hit a lot more and is confident in his hitting skills. So, you know, like all the players in the top 15, he’s a pretty tough fighter, “he had said.
What’s more, Demian He knew it would be difficult: “This is not an easy fight. But, you know, I’ve been in this situation so many times in my life. For me, it was sad that he did his last fight without a crowd, and not just him, but other fighters as well. I was like, ‘Man, I don’t want that for myself.’ You know, I don’t want to end my career without a crowd. It would be so, so sad, at least in my opinion, and thank goodness events just went back to normal. “
