I thought Maia would win, but not so dominantly - i expected a lot of back and forth on the ground with Maia maybe snatching a sub or winning a very close decision.

I knew Maia would own Fitch on the ground, expected a submission. Props to Fitch for not being submitted, loved watching him get Fitch'd!!

Would love to see Maia vs GSP. GSP can finally get a finish.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fight. I hated that the fans in attendance booed throughout, but unfortunately, that's to be expected.

I figured Maia had a real shot at winning this fight because I just didn't see one area- except maybe conditioning- where Fitch had a distinct edge. I also thought going in, that Maia's size and strength at this weight class was very underrated. I mean he ragdolled Stun Gun and Story, two powerful WWs with Judo and wrestling bases, respectively. However, I stayed away from this one.

I have to hand it to both guys though. Like Rogan said, Fitch's sub defense is truly world class. He proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt. And Maia, well he's just flat out scary at WW. I don't forsee too many guys lining up to fight him after last night.

I also got a kick out of Fitch- late in the fight (3rd I believe?)- trying to sell to the ref that Maia was stalling and not doing anything, only to get called out on it by Joe saying how hypocritical that was of him. Haha too good.

How great would it be if the guy Anderson humiliated the most ended up taking GSP's belt?

You mean the guy Anderson humiliated himself against the most?

Well, as weird as it sounds, that's how I see it. What he did had worse effects for him than for Maia.
