Damian Maia is a great fighter and has a bright future in the UFC. I see him as being the first to defeat Anderson Silva. Maia is the future Middleweight champion hands down. But to beat Silva he needs to work on his stand up greatly. If he takes it to the ground then the games over. Maia would win with ease.
Agreed. I also think he has a good chance of beating silva but only if he takes time to round out his game. If he gets any opponent to the ground they're in trouble.
