1. I hope Maia gets the win.
2. Whoever cropped that picture wrecked Maia's ear.

Not quite sure about this one, Maia is still unproven at 170 and Story hits hard.

Undecided, but it would be cool to see the "old" Maia again.

Maia took Kim down rather easily, and that guy has a very solid Judo base and is hard to take down. I see him doing the same to Story.

Maia by any way he wants to on the ground. If he chooses to stand then it could be a hard night for Maia.

Maia wins this for sure. If Rick goes for the clinch game, it just opens him up for takedowns. I believe with Maia's improved striking, he would be able to stand his ground against Rick on the feet. Not like Rick has any serious power on his hands anyway...

Maia by decision.

It's time for another of these crazy submissions, I hope Demian agrees.

Yeah I don't get why people think he is such a heavy hitter. The dude almost never finishes a fight with strikes.

Maia by unanimous decision or a crazy sub!

I've never been impressed by Story, so much hype after the Alves fight...
