Excited for this fight. I see Maia winning, he's on such a good run right now with a lot of momentum, and Shields really isn't that dangerous standing or on the ground (on the ground with Maia).
Maia is the guy I have in my mind beating GSP if anyone does with the current guys in the diviison. I know Hendricks has power but GSP has faced a lot of guys with power, he's really good at picking his shots and playing the safe/control/decision game. Where as I can visualize Maia grabbing a hold of GSP and dragging him to the ground like he did Fitch, just with raw technique and being such a big guy at MW.
Can't wait to see what happens here and where Maia goes after this (if he wins).
