Edit: I really need to see Penn/Fitch see if John was in any bad spots in that fight.
He escaped arguably the most compromised position one could possibly be in. BJ had his back and had his arm trapped with his leg... Jon escaped.

The more I think about the more confident I am that Jon will win. He'll get top position and maul Maia for 15 minutes.
