That may be true in general, but Maias fights at WW are the exception. He has got down his opponents and totally controlled them. In fact, I struggle to remember the last time ive seen anybody out grapple his opponents so conclusively and consistently... probably since GSP.

Make no mistake. Maia at WW is just as effective at getting opponents down as anybody outside of the riddim.
