His stand up is solid technically and his calmness is a huge help. Not sure how well it translates in UFC talent, but frm what I see he is at least decent standing. And the calmness he has is a huge asset to carrying out good technique.

Yea Jorge didn't get subb'd. He is a solid blackbelt. But Maia has more of a control and sub game. Gunnar has a different style that could prove more difficult for Jorge. Gunnar will jump on subs, which can be a good and bad thing.
