After failing to end the reign of welterweight champ, Tyron Woodley, Demian Maia will reportedly battle Colby Covington next.

Maia (25-7) faced Woodley at UFC 214 last month, and lost the fight via unanimous decision. The renowned grappler had won seven in a row prior to the defeat.

According to Combate, and a follow up report from MMA Fighting, sources have relayed that Maia and Covington will fight on October 28th, at a Fight Night card in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Covington (12-1), meanwhile, is coming off a decision win over Dong Hyun Kim and has won four in a row.
