Now Fitch knows the difference between children and adults, regarding Jiu Jitsu.
Maia is the man. Fitch had absolute zero offense in this fight.
Props to him for his toughness and not getting subbed, but this is what I call ragdolling.

Man, Maia bullied the hell out of fitch. that was pretty surprising! Maia will be fighting for the belt by the end of 2013 or start of 2014 in my opinion.

Two problems; GSP has much better speed and footwork than Fitch along with much better range control. Maia will have a very hard time trying to close the gap and get a hold of GSP, even Koscheck who has the fastest shot other than GSP had a hell of a time trying to get a hold of him. GSP is always in motion and he doesn't back himself up in a straight line the way Fitch did, and he's next to impossible to take down.

Now, IF Maia manages to close the gap and get GSP to the ground, I think he'll have an easier time trying to sub him than he did against Fitch. But getting there is going to be much, much harder.

I don't think Kos used to ragdoll Fitch like that at AKA.

Maia is a killer at WW. I agree that GSP is easier to submit than Fitch.

Maia showed Fitch who the superior grappler was for sure tonight. Fitch had nothing for him.

I figured Maia would win, but Fitch surprised me with his submission defense. Guy is pretty much un-submittable at this point.
