As a Fitch fan I'm quite disappointed. But at the same time I'm happy because Maia is a monster at 170 and i want him to fight for the belt

That's right. A part of me wants to be a jerk and shout some obnoxious I told you so's to some people who thought Fitch would Fitch Maia, but considering how wrong I've been in the past regarding other predictions, I won't.

Still, Maia is on a whole different level on the ground. When he's coming in with a BJJ mind set, I don't see him getting blanketed or out grappled by anyone at 170. I didn't think he would before this fight either. This just completely confirms what I thought.

St. Pierre will look to keep it standing for all 5 rounds if they fight in my opinion.

Fitch gets more abuse on this forum after surving about 13 minutes on the ground with Maia.

I wasn't disrespecting him. I even gave him props for not getting submitted against a world class grappler like Maia. I just think Maia was underrated going into this fight by a lot of people. This must have opened eyes though. Fitch is among the elite at 170 in my opinion, and Maia decisively beat him.

Maia doesn't need to be faster than GSP to take him down. He probably will just run toward him and get himself glued to a limb and advance from there. Basically we have seen what he'll do recently.

GSP would mash Maia. Ya'll need to calm down.

Super impressive stuff from Maia. If Hendricks loses to Ellenberger (which I think is very possible), I think Maia should get the shot. Really blown away by his performance tonight.

It's not just speed, it's footwork and range control. If he tries to rush GSP, he'll just get side-stepped and eat a punch or 2 for his troubles. He'll need to set it up and somehow corner GSP against the fence, and this is a complete bitch to do since GSP has excellent cage awareness and always circles out and back towards to the center as soon as he gets behind the black line in the octagon. GSP's TD defence is incredibly good, and his footwork and range control takes it to the next level by making it very hard for his opponents to get a good hold of him.
