I disagree. I think Maia is not only an expert at BJJ, but he's an expert at grappling. If he gets a hold of you, you're doing down. The outstanding wrestler in Sonnen got taken down with ease. Dan Miller also fell victim to Maia's superior take downs.
I think the only kind of person to avoid getting taken down is an elusive fighter (Silva) or the one hit wonder (Marquardt).
I do think Maia's chin is questionable... but I think Maia's going to get this to the ground one way or another. Whether he takes Munoz down or Munoz "stuns" Maia and jumps on top of him.
