I think this fight is going to be like a Weidman fight. If Fitch is crazy enough to take em down for more than a minute good luck to em. Prolly Fitch by UD although the fight could be a lot closer than the outcome because I think Maia might put em in a few tricky situations that Fitch may be able to power out of barely. The only time he got submitted was like his first fight against Pyle.

Expect a protracted battle.

I think Fitch is gonna smash up Maia, hurt him, then finish him on the ground.

Just got a feeling.

I'll give you two to one. 1 million if he submits or tkos Maia on the ground only. If he somehow KOes em on the feet its void of course. It really would be something if he outgrapples and outworks em on the ground. If I win only 500k.

Fitch has to finish on the ground.

I wonder if Fitch is really crazy enough to take em down. That would be very surprising if he did. Guerilla jiu jitsu vs ADCC champ...haha...let the games begin! I think that would be the biggest upset if he pulled off a sub on em. I see a GSP vs Shields type of fight. Who knows...

Interesting note. Maia HANDLED Chael yet he's so much farther down the pecking order these days. I think Maia will contend for the belt if he wins. He needs to focus on his strength as shown against Story. I actually bet on Story...oops!

I voted for Maia...

But if this fight is a really shit kickboxing match fitch wins, if its the ground fight everyone wants to see Maia takes it. So my vote for Maia....is a vote for hope.

I expect this fight to be as good as Fitch x Silva.
I'm a bit divided here so whoever wins I'm good.

Erik Silva got fitch's back twice in their fight, and got close with a RNC. Fitch undoubtedly has great sub defense but if he lets Maia get in the same positions as Silva did he will get subbed.

If Munoz can completely neutralise Maia's grappling, then so can Fitch. I expect Fitch to win a fairly competitive, but ultimately dominant decision.
