Kamaru Usman needed a new opponent at UFC Chile, and the promotion is bringing in a big name to face him in a five-round main event in Santiago.

Demian Maia, a former title contender at both welterweight and middleweight, is the frontrunner to step in against “The Nigerian Nightmare” on May 19, replacing injured Santiago Ponzinibbio, sources told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani. The bout is not 100 percent official, but Maia will be the opponent barring a last-minute change.

Very interesting fight but at this stage I'm a little worried about Maia.

I think Usman can probably get that finish here over Maia, also he really needs one to cement his position for a title shot. Wrestlers of Usman and Covington level are too in their prime and aware of Maia's traps to fall into them.

At least it's a step in the right direction...division like WW, LW, and FW really to start incorporating their younger talent into the mix.
