No, we don't know these things. He couldn't take Silva down and crumbled mentally. He couldn't take Munoz down and resorted to sloppy striking. He couldn't take Weidman down, and ditto. Maia has looked like a beast at WW, but let's be honest... he's had the size advantage in every fight. I'm not going to dismiss his wins because they've been very impressive, and I'm a Maia fan. But he'd better be expecting to come in and face a MW in Rory because that's what he'll get. And if Maia struggled with the strength of Munoz, then Ares is going to have his way with that ass.
That was at the time when Maia thought he were a kickboxing genius and abandoned all of his offensive grappling. Hell, in the Weidman fight he even used his Jits to STAND UP again, after they both found themselves on the ground.
Rory annoys me, because if you have no intention of fighting the champ then why stay at the weight? He is a huge WW that will probably end up at 185 anyway as he gets bigger. Not sure what the UFC is trying to do by having him beat top guys and possible title contenders.
He is probably just deathly afraid if getting clowned by Anderson should he do well at 185. He will wait until ANderson retires/moves on to make his way to 185.
I'm not that sure of Rory not going to fight St. Pierre. Didn't he even mention that it were possibleż
Maia is not a wrestler. Maia is a BJJ wizard. BJJ > Wrestling => Maia > Pyle
Wrestlers are better at takedowns then BJJ guys. I think that is pretty obvious. Bring up Maia vs Chael if you want but there are far more examples of wrestlers dictating where the fight takes place then BJJ guys. We aren't talking who is the better grappler but who has the better take downs. But in general I would also disagree IMO wrestling is more dominant then BJJ.
