Fantastic match up but I don't want to see either lose. Sucks for me.

Bad ass. Maia has maybe the most dangerous attacking jitz at WW and Jon has great wrestling and great jitz defense. Hope it goes to the mat and doesn't turn into a shit kick boxing match like it did with maia and weidman.

I really want this fight. If Beast Fitch and Aggressive Maia show up it's gonna be a hell of a grappling match.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

This fight could either be really fun or really boring, but either way I'm really interested.

I highly doubt this is boring, this could be one of the best grappling matches in MMA history, Fitch's amazing submission defense vs. the awesome submission game of Maia, I'm pumped up.

I love Fitch, but think Maia will rack up the points by pressuring with submissions.

Not if he's on his back. You can't score points in mma off your back.
