Maia has a second wind in his carreer here.. it's impressive.. but Jake is nobodys walk in the park whether people like his fighting style or not.
I tend to agree with you here.
Jake is not someone to overlook, his lack of striking doesn't hurt his chances in this fight either. It's not like Maia is fighting someone with no ground game. Shields in world class, and gets overlooked because he never competed in pure BJJ as much.
