TDD doesn't help when Maia's willing to climb you standing. I don't see this going well for Koscheck.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Even GSP had problems taking Kos down in their second fight. He landed only like 3 takedowns and Kos popped right back up every time, so I doubt that Maia is getting him down. Maia has no standup, Kos at least has a right hand and KO power. Maia is getting KTFO here.

This fight doesn't make sense at this point.

How much money does Koscheck make?

What has Kos actually done recently? Who has he beat? A close decision loss to Hendricks is his most redeeming fight in years. A split over Pierce? KO of a Hughes that had his soul stolen by Penn and had been declining for years anyways? Or a decision over Daley?

Kos is on the decline and Maia is looking amazing at 170. Kos didn't even look like he wanted to fight against Lawler.

I like it. Kos is still a big enough name. It wasn't long ago that he had his title shot. Maia is now looking like the big name at WW, and this fight will show is Maia is the real deal, and if Kos has anything left. Worst case scenario, Maia gets a popular W on his rec and Kos gets cut (algthough, also best case scenario )

I'm probably the best at keeping threads on topic of all time.

Maia vs Koscheck targeted for UFC 163

Demian Maia vs. Josh Koscheck targeted for UFC 163 in August

A welterweight fight is about to be added to UFC 163.

Demian Maia vs. Josh Koschech is slated to take place on the Aug. 3 card, confirmed with sources close to the fight after Brazilian Web site News MMA first reported it earlier this week. The UFC has yet to officially announced the 170-pound fight.

Maia (18-4) is coming off a dominant unanimous decision win over Jon Fitch at UFC 156 in February. That win improved his record as a welterweight to 3-0.

Koscheck (17-7) has lost his last two fights in a row. He most recently lost via first-round TKO to Robbie Lawler at UFC 157 in February,

UFC 163 will be headlined by Jose Aldo vs. Anthony Pettis for the UFC featherweight title. The event will take place in Brazil, and while some outlets have reported it will be held in Rio de Janeiro, that has yet to be made official by the organization, as well.

Interesting to see if Maia can fitch Koscheck as well.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones
