I told you Maia could take Fitch down. Fitch has never had outstanding take down defense, and Maia has underrated take down abilities. This is a very winnable fight for Maia, just like I thought.

No one has manhandled Fitch like this since GSP.

Maia is controlling Fitch, but I have to imagine Maia is getting frustrated with the fact he can't submit Fitch.

I'm enjoying this...haha! Anybody feel bad for Fitch. Fitch does this everytime to every fighter. Finally someone who returned the favour.

It's nice to hear that cheering is drowning out the boos. Not every fan in attendance is an idiot.

I'm really enjoying this fight. Good ground work.

Maia can beat GSP if he has the gas tank, his TDs are amazing at WW.

Props to Fitch for having such great submission defense. Still, this was a bad match up for him, which is funny considering a lot of people thought he was a bad match up for Maia. I knew that wasn't the case. Maia is a big guy at 170 with phenomenal BJJ. I couldn't see Fitch shrugging him off for three rounds. He couldn't even stuff a 155er in Penn's take downs.

Wow. Fitch's defensive wrestling is shit. No wonder BJ was able to take him down.

I mean his offensive is great. It's been his main tool for years. I don't think anyone before BJ really thought to try and take him down because his offense was so good.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
