This just has to be the next #1 contender fight. I don't see who ranks above Fitch and Maia except for Kampmann and beard guy.

Winner would be on a three fight win streak...they would likely match up with Marquardt (Strikeforce champion third UFC fight), Rory Macdonald (which would be for his fifth win in a row), or Nick Diaz (whose paid his dues and the UFC would love to give a shot to).

But if Maia runs through Fitch I would say screw the superfight book Maia/GSP and force Anderson to fight Jones.

Great fight and sick card, I'm pumped already.
Maia will have to finish this one early or fitch is going to out-cardio him.

Awesome, I've been hoping for this fight. This has the potential to be such an epic grappling match, plz plz Maia and Fitch don't turn this into an awkward ugly kick-boxing match.

Best Submission offense in the UFC vs quite possibly the beat Submission defense in the UFC, this could be unbelievable!

Fitch looked outstanding in his last fight and he always possesed amazing submission defense skills.But if anybody is going to submit Jon it's going to be Maia.

Marquardt, and the rest of the SF champs should get unification matches.

Really hoping Maia pulls this off. It would be a huge win.

I applaud Joe Silva for this matchup. Fitch controls where the fight goes, and he's got the better striking. Jon is a conservative fighter, but if he hurts Maia, he'll follow him to the ground and pound him out. I see a second or third round TKO for Fitch.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."
