Maia vs Nate then I realized they already fought at 185...haha. I don't think Maia can beat GSP. Why...he's too damn fast and explosive. Maia won't catch em nor does he have the striking prowess to pose any threat. It would be an interesting fight though nonetheless. Kinda like Anderson vs Maia. I thought it was a decent fight.

This was the SOLE REDEEMING FIGHT tonight.

I like Maia vs. Rory/Condit winner. If he wins that one he gets a shot.

I wouldn't mind seeing Maia fight Marquardt again in the future. Their first fight, he came in looking to throw leg kicks which Mardquardt easily countered. If Maia had a better game plan, I think he'd win the rematch. Although, at the moment, I think he's higher up the ladder. He's a title contender right now in my opinion.

When he can't take ppl down, he will just backpack them.

Yah I just wanted to see if Nate does fight GSP. Those situations (same fighters within the same camp) pose a unique challenge. Aside from training with one another what about friendship. How deep is their friendship. As evident with Condit at least GJ stepped away, but GSP spent his entire came at Tri-Star.

Maia vs Rory/Condit or Tarec Saffedine. Winner gets the shot. I don't think Rory will be pushing for a title shot even if he wins against Condit.

Not a bad idea, I think those are all winnable fights for Maia. I think the only real bad match up for him at 170 is St. Pierre. I'd still like to see the fight though.

Damn Jon needs to work on his defensive wrestling....BJ, Silva and now Maia have all taken him down with relative ease.

I totally underestimated Maias ability to control Fitch in this fight.

I did. This is all on paper. Maia is an Abu Dabi champion. He came into the 185 division beating Chael in his own game, JMAC, and a sleu of others with ease. At that time he had one single goal in mind. Take down and submit. After the Anderson fight I'm almost certain now that it messed with his mind. He saw how far advanced Anderson's striking was so he started training that which isn't a bad idea at all. Only problem was it cost him a few wins.

Fast forward, what has he done in the 170lb division. Exactly what he did when he first came into the UFC. Grapple, clinch, takedown, and go for the submission. Props to Fitch to fending em off, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. He got a taste of his own medicine royally.
