War Maia! This fight is either going to be awesome, or horrible.

A guy (my brother ) on my facebook said that this fight is going to be boring and that it would be, and I quote, " a shit BJJ fight".

Can't believe I am related to him. Had to give him a slap for his idiocy... If this fight hits the floor it's gonna be awesome!!

Just finished watching the countdown. I think Fitch really is crazy enough to take down Maia and try to GNP or even submit em. If he somehow prevails and finishes on the ground I'll be $1 million poorer and pretty surprised. There are few fighters you don't want to toy around in the grappling department; Werdum, Mir, Aoki, and Maia.

I think Fitch taking it to the ground will be playing with fire and Maia will get the sub.

I have to say all four main event fights are gonna be entertaining. Did anybody else realize it's four Brazillians on the main card.

I think Fitch is the more well-rounded fighter and wins a UD here. I foresee a lot of Fitching, which of course means to press your opponent against the cage and wear him the **** out. Maia's conditioning isn't what Fitch's is, so if Maia can't sub him early I see no huge issues for Fitch if he fights smart.

If your brother moans about getting abuse from someone on your friends list called Jay...it wasn't me

MAKE him watch this fight. Fitch was (can't believe I'm saying this) exciting in his last fight, and with Maia at 170...I expect this fight to be awesome.

Me too... He'll be watching as he watches every card but lets just say his opinions on some fighters are a bit off.

Im probably more excited for this fight than any other on the card... Except the reem maybe.

I was kind of like that before i started training in grappling , now i have an idea of what people are trying to do and the skill it takes i enjoy it now. I still hate lay and pray bullshit though, like everywhere in the fight game....and attacking style is more entertaining.

I have a buddy that is one of those know it alls that drives me nuts when he comes to watch. He tries to critique everything and he knows absolutely nothing about fighting in any way shape or form.

I think if they stand for more than 10 secs the ref should call time and sit them back down.

Maia via Armbar rd 3

will be interesting to see how the refs perform in brazil this time round, standing up too early etc or maybe the opposite to favour maia. its probably just bad ref decisions but the card before last with the russian first round KO and the 10 or so clean hits before it was stopped vs bispings 3 seconds to recover before it was over. both were in brazil.
