odds are way to lopsided IMO. Maia is a small MW and I think Grove has enough reach to somewhat keep Maia at bay. Hard to say though considering I thought the same about Almedia/Grove. With these odds though I will take the chance on Grove.

all in (1066 only ) on Maia, odds would say that smart bet goes on Grove, but I just can't bet against Maia!

I thought I put credits on this fight.

Oh well, Maia looked good. Grove just wasn't ready for the grappling that Maia brings to the table.
