Totally controlling a guy with no sub finish isn't a great way to display Maia. He needs to take home a slick sub so people can get excited about his prospects for the belt.
Disagree. Who GSP finishes being the champion?
What Maia has been doing to strong grapplers at 170 is pretty impressive and if he ragdolls Shields he should be put to fight GSP right away (or JH, who knows?).

I want to see Maia vs GSP badly.
