Shields would be a step down for Maia, Shields' coming off a suspension. And besides that he got nothing on Maia

Maia could probably RNC Shields. If this was a 5 round main event (do they still do those?) I'd say Shields definitely gets subbed.


The real fight for Shields is at middleweight, and its Jacare.

I agree, just saying that Shields would put up a better fight than what Fitch did. Would it work? who knows

Lets not get all defensive.

Yes, he out struck GSP for 2 rounds when GSP's eye hurt. Does that make it any better? It shouldn't.

Shields may be teh worst striker in the division now that Brenneman is gone.

This is a gross match up. Maia utilizes BJJ in MMA better than anyone on the planet right now. I don't think there is a worse match up for shields. Shields strength will be overcome and he'll have to resort to standing up with Maia (but we all know if Maia can take fitch down, Jake's TDD is more than likely not holding up) who although is probably one of the least dynamic striker I've ever seen in recent times, he sometimes manages to do well on the feet. Shields for whatever reason will never be even a mid tier striker.

Poor Jakey.

I'd be cheering for Maia but I don't see any reason to just call it for him now. Jake is bigger,stronger and a better grappler than Fitch if he gets top position it will be an interesting match.

If it stayed on the feet Jake has the advantage. Maia isn't going to hurt him.

it seems like nobody can roll with Maia now. But it also seemed like nobody could take an H-bomb.



Ol' jake won that fight.^^

...and it's not like Maia has never had a bad night where he looked terrible.

any time I see poll numbers like this one ......

Would have called it a fairly even match up, with a slight edge to Maia, but after seeing Maia outfitch The Fitchster, i've got Maia all day everyday. Better striking (Maia's striking is actually decent, he just lacks the explosiveness), and just seems like a wrestler's nightmare these days.

I've never once been impressed with Shields. He lost to Kampmann in my eyes. He did zero damage to him and had top control a bit longer. Didn't threaten GSP at all, got Ko'd by ellenberger. And his fight with akiyamer was another snoozer as was that terrible performance with Herman.

Easy win for Maia

Nick Diaz vs. Maia would be the fight to make.

Shields vs. Maia would be about as fun as watching paint dry, probably less fun since I can at least get high off the paint fumes.

Maia is absolutly world class with his ground game... but it would be a huge mistake to underestimate Jakes pedigree...


And tbh I think Sheilds is slick enough to pull it off. I'm going with Jake. I think the fact that he uses his wrestling to agressivley set up subs with his BJJ is gonna pay off huge if this fight happens.
