Story is widely overrated.

Maia fought for the title. He has fought top 5 MWs. Story is an average 170.

Not saying Maia will cruise here. But Story isn't a finisher at all. Maia may out-strike him in a terrible striking contest. Or if Story wants to clinch he can get it to the ground. If on the ground I think he taps Story fairly easy.

I have a feeling Maia fights smart in Brazil. You don't move down a weight if you aren't re-adjusting your game.

Maia 1st round sub of some sort. Story has never faced a real good BJJ artist.
