While the streaks may not line up, Koscheck is a tough go for everyone and another test for Maia (if they are trying to build him up for a title shot)

Kos is Fitch with better striking, so it's not necessarily grappler vs grappler, Kos is still ranked #10, the only other top 10 available is Condit (2) Diaz (6) and Kampmann (7)

Shields vs Woodley - June 15

Rory (3) vs Ellenberger (4) - July 27

Tarec (8) vs Lawler (9) - July 27

Gsp vs Hendricks (1) - Sept 21??

Diaz could fight Kampmann, so could Condit, Maia wants to stay busy, glad Kos is back, and who knows if Kampann is still injured, Diaz is technically retired.

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8

This is actually tougher for Maia then many realize. Koscheck has pretty damn good takedown defense, noticeably better then Fitch imo although Fitch is a better grappler when on the ground.

Striking wise they are probably around equal so I am not really sure who to go with. I am hoping Maia will win because if Koscheck does it would be yet another contender derailed but I don't think he will run through Koscheck like some others here do.

Why are people writing Koscheck off? He was Ko'd by Lawler who has a lot of power?
Koscheck gives Maia troubles, he has good defense and He can keep it standing or keep Maia on the cage and beat him up. I'm pretty excited I think Koscheck will will this fight

What the **** is this garbage?

Koscheck just lost to Lawler, now he's fighting Maia who should be fighting Tarec for a title shot who is instead fighting Lawler.

Now who the hell is Carlos gonna fight?

**** off UFC

They were never going to feed Condit to Maia..then he would never fight GSP again (which is probably what they would like at some point),

give Condit Kampann or Matt Brown, he wins, he gets the winner of Rory/Ellenberger, or Maia/Koscheck or Tarec/Lawler,

I was talking about Koscheck considering they both lost their last two fights.

I forgot about Kampmann though, haven't heard from him in a while, Maia/Tarec for the title shot still should have been made. Ellenberger/Rory, Lawler/Tarec and now Maia/Koscheck, this division has some stupid fights coming up.

Good fight, I would love to see Maia submit Koscheck. It's sad but Koscheck is definitely on the downswing of his career and is fading with age. This fight could end up standing though and on the feet they're both close.

Kos is a terrible matchup for Maia on paper. If Maia can actually take Kos down though that speaks well to his prospects against GSP who had a lot of trouble getting the takedown against Kos in the second fight.

Pick em fight. Maia isn't as good as people think he is and Koscheck has the skill-set to beat him.
