UFC Fight Night 29 will take place from Jose Correa Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil with the main card bouts airing live on the new FOX Sports 1 at 7PM ET on Wednesday.

The main event of Wednesday’s card is a welterweight clash between two contenders as Jake Shields (28-6-1) takes on Demian Maia (18-4). According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Maia is the favorite to win this bout, as he has odds of -285 to win, while Shields has a money line of +225 to win. Maia is 3-0 since making the move to welterweight, including a dominant win over Jon Fitch. Shields is 2-0-1 in his last three and both men come into this fight as tremendous submission grapplers. They could arguably be the top two jiu-jitsu grapplers in the division. The key could be which fighter has better striking and the fact that Maia is fighting in his home country.

The co-main event of Wednesday’s card is also a welterweight bout as Dong Hyun Kim (17-2-1) takes on Erick Silva (15-3). According to oddsmakers, Silva is the favorite, as he has a money line of -265 to win, while Kim has odds of +205 to prevail. Silva is 3-2 in the UFC, but his three wins were all first-round finishes. He has explosive striking and good submission skills if the fight gets to the ground. Kim has won his last two and he is a big, strong welterweight that uses his size and strength to control his opponents with wrestling. The key to this fight will be if it takes place standing or on the ground.
