Demian 玛雅 当他接任时将寻求使其连续七次获胜 豪尔赫·马斯维达尔（Jorge Masvidal） at UFC 211. If 玛雅 can pull of the win surely a 标题镜头 不能再被拒绝了？
Since making his Welterweight debut 在 July 2012, 玛雅 has won nine 和 lost two. His two losses were to well decorated opponents 和 former 170lb title challengers, 杰克·希尔兹 和 罗里·麦克唐纳. However, along the way 玛雅 has knocked off some stiff competition. He boasts wins over the likes of 金东H, 乔恩·菲奇, 贡纳尔·尼尔森 和 Matt Brown.
玛雅’这次郊游是他迄今为止最令人印象深刻的一次。他能够派遣 前称号持有者和排名较高的次中量级选手Carlos Condit 一轮. He also became the first man to submit Condit 在side the octagon 和 has finished three of his last four fights 通过 rear-naked choke. 玛雅 has a professional MMA record of 24 wins 和 six losses with all of his losses coming to household names 在 the MMA world. 克里斯·魏德曼, 内特·马夸特, 安德森·席尔瓦（Anderson Silva）, 马克·穆诺兹，以及上述 杰克斯·希尔兹 和 罗里·麦克唐纳 are the only men to beat 玛雅 to date.
玛雅’的对手豪尔赫·马斯维达尔（Jorge Masvidal）开始在才华横溢的轻量级比赛中找到自己的对手。 Masvidal取得了将军澳两连胜 杰克·埃伦伯格 和 唐纳德“Cowboy” Cerrone 分别。后者通过第二轮将军澳胜利以令人着迷的方式赢得比赛，许多人认为这场战斗本应在第二节结束时停止。 第一回合. Masvidal has a mixed professional MMA record of 35 wins 和 11 losses but is an 在credibly difficult opponent to finish. Jorge has never been stopped 在side the UFC or Strikeforce so 玛雅 definitely will have his hands full on the night.
玛雅’s route to victory is quite clear. He has to take Masvidal to the ground 和 use his world class BJJ skills to try 和 pull of another slick submission. Masvidal on the other hand will be looking to do the opposite 和 keep the fight standing at all costs. Masvidal has shown some improvements 在 his takedown defence 和 if he can keep 玛雅 off him, the Brazilian will be 在 for one tough night. With title ramifications at stake, I fully expect an exciting 和 highly technical 国际象棋类型的比赛，两个男人都希望避开其他强者。
