I see Dong coming hard and pushing Maia into making a mistake on the feet and making him pay, this is going to a split decision for Kim to win.

IMO the problem with Stun Gun is that he (for now) lacks the tools to finish his fights. His takedowns are great and he's good at controlling yet he's shown neither effective submissions nor gnp (even though he often succeeds at getting top position); his stand-up has shown improvement but has a long way to go before he can hold his own to against the division's top tier. Once he improves those aspects, he'll be a quality top contender.

Maia has shown a fantastic submission game and I'd say his stand-up is somewhere along the lines of DHK's.

Rooting for Kim and actually hoping he'll win decisively against a name opponent.

Just want to say LOL at Dana White saying "if Demian Maia gets you on the ground, its almost a given he's going to submit you", despite Maia not winning by sub since 2009 . Not saying Maia can't do that tonight, but it just struck me as funny.

It pretty unlikely that he subs a high level grappler like stungun who is going to be able to dictate where he is fighting from.

There's just something I like about Stun Gun. Dunno what it is though.
