Maia showed Fitch who the superior grappler was for sure tonight. Fitch had nothing for him.
A part of me wants to be a jerk and shout some obnoxious I told you so's to some people who thought Fitch would Fitch Maia, but considering how wrong I've been in the past regarding other predictions, I won't.
Still, Maia is on a whole different level on the ground. When he's coming in with a BJJ mind set, I don't see him getting blanketed or out grappled by anyone at 170. I didn't think he would before this fight either. This just completely confirms what I thought.
St. Pierre will look to keep it standing for all 5 rounds if they fight in my opinion.
