Demian Maia has no intention of hanging up his gloves after suffering his third consecutive loss at  UFC Fight Night 129 last weekend.

Last weekend Maia was defeated by Kamaru Usman and suffered another unanimous-decision loss. However, he does not plan to retire.

“I still have three fights under my contract,” Maia said through an interpreter. “I want to do those three fights. It was short notice for this fight; I only prepared for three weeks. And actually my last three fights were against wrestlers. My game plan is to take the fighters down, so it was tough fights. But I still have the will to finish my contract.”

“I’m focusing on finishing my contract,” Maia said. “Those last three fights and break those records for me.”
