UFC Fight Night 129 live results: Demian Maia vs. Kamaru Usman

Welcome to F4WOnline.com's live coverage of UFC Fight Night 129: Maia vs. Usman, emanating from the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile.

The Octagon debuts in Chile with a 13-fight card featuring a UFC veteran looking to get back to his winning ways against a fast-rising contender in the welterweight division.

Former two-division title challenger Demian Maia looks to end his two-fight losing skid when he takes on the dangerous Kamaru Usman, who is undefeated in the Octagon and winner of eleven straight overall. Maia steps in for this fight on a shortened training camp as he replaced Santiago Ponzinibbio, who was forced out due to a broken hand.

Maia fights for the UFC for the 28th time, and only two fighters have competed under the UFC banner more. Usman is making a charge at 170 pounds and could solidify a potential title shot with another win, but Maia is dangerous and always primed for an upset.

Also on the main card is a battle in the women's strawweight division as Alexa Grasso looks for her second consecutive win against former TUF winner Tatiana Suarez, who looks to remain undefeated in her career. In the women's flyweight division, Andrea "KGB" Lee makes her UFC debut, and she has a lot of star potential, as she takes on Veronica Macedo.

Follow along with our live coverage of the event beginning at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time with preliminary action all the way through the main card.
