Demian Maia is a perfect three for three since dropping down to the welterweight division, including his latest a dominating win over Jon Fitch. Generally the UFC tends to match fighters coming off wins with other fighters coming off wins, but not so the case for Maia who is expected to face veteran Josh Koscheck.  The former TUF alumin is coming off a two bout skid and may be matched up with Maia to test the Brazilian against another former one contender and recognizable star:

A welterweight fight is about to be added to UFC 163.

Demian Maia vs. Josh Koschech is slated to take place on the Aug. 3 card, MMAFighting.com confirmed with sources close to the fight after Brazilian Web site News MMA first reported it earlier this week. The UFC has yet to officially announced the 170-pound fight.

No

I'm not a big fan of this matchup myself.

Maia is on a roll and I'd hate Koscheck killing his momentum by decisioning him. Phone Post 3.0

Dana and joe silva on a mission to cleanse the WW rankings of wrestlers it seems, and they are using Maia to do so:

Why do fighters even try to win any more? They should leonard garcia the whole time and collect money.

Instead, we get a guy who is winning huge fights against top tier opponents having to fight josh fucking koschek because he has a name. Kos should be fighting some up and coming kid, not a contender. UFC is starting to jump the shark for me, marky especially after michael bisping banks more payroll than the god damn champion at $425,000. And dont give me all that sponsorship shit, the ufc makes it harder to sponsor than probably any other org. Besides that, you never hear how any other athletes have their pay lowered because the league thinks their sponsors will make up the difference.

Relax dude. Maia Isn't complaining I'm sure of that, to be honest he might get the title shot off this victory if anything or a contender fight. Kos is coming off a title fight with GSP then gets knocked out by Robbie fucking Lawler of all people and you think he should fight low competition? Seems backwards. Either way you you need to relax I cant believe you get that upset about it really.

I love the matchup.

Maia's really carrying the torch for BJJ in the UFC nowadays. I've really enjoyed having the "insane grappler" Maia back over the "serviceable boxer" Maia we had for awhile.

Maia smeared Fitch all over the canvas. If he repeats it with Koscheck I think he may very well get the next title shot. Phone Post 3.0

Weird. I don't get the point of matching up a guy on the verge of a title shot with a guy who's no longer a contender. It never makes no sense to me why they risk killing off one contender without building up another.

Maia should have been paired up with Lawler or Saffiedine, not someone coming off a loss.

I hope Maia focusses on grappling.

This could be similar to Kos vs Hughes if Maia doesn't do his utmost to close distance and grapple. Koschecks wrestling isn't what it used to be and I fancy Maia can find a way to get him down.

Just because your striking has improved, it doesn't mean we want to see you cruise to a decision loss and abandon your bread and butter (i.e. Vinny!)
