This card isn't in Brazil though... it's in Las Vegas.

Is Fitch still on that vegan (or whatever) diet he started pre-BJ fight?

I suspect that if Fitch consistently gets TD's into top control, he is good enough and strong enough to wear Maia out.

On the feet, Fitch might be a bit better, but they're close enough for it to be a wash.

Wondering what gameplan Fitch goes with...

Maia has learnt a few tricks on striking department, enough to make him eventually fight whole fights standing and tagging. Fitch, in the other hand has an unique M.O.: TD and wear u out on top. I have no reason to believe Fitch stand up is better than Maia's.

Close, but never really locked and I don't have a clue why he didn't. Fitch could escape the RNC, because Silva had his hand ON Fitch's head instead of completing it and putting it BEHIND the head.

**** everything about this fight. My two favorite fighters. I'm gonna have to go with Jon winning because of his recent showings. He ate Silva alive. And Jon has proven himself all bun unsubmittable. Dude's been in so many deep, deep chokes and just powered through them. I don't know if that's good enough to get out of anything from Maia though, but it may give him enough time to work out of something. Seriously though, I hate this fight

That was a fantastic back and forth fight, but I don't think Fitch ate em alive. He put it on towards the end cuz Silva was gassed, but Silva came pretty close to finishing.

I don't care if Fitch wins as long as it's not a TKO or submission on the ground...lolz!

Killz...you know what would be ironic. If he's about to TKO Maia on the ground, but Maia makes it back up as the bell rings...lmfao! btw: I need to recoup some of my investments back before I ship $1 million if Maia loses on the ground.

Let the games begin Johnny Cash aka Opie aka Corrado!
