Maia wins easily. He's the better grappler by far and has been dominating grapplers at 170. Meanwhile Shields grappling has been completely underwhelming in the UFC and while he may be a good bjj guy he isn't ADCC champion caliber. Maia is one of the best in the world at what he does. Shields has not come close to proving that he is anywhere near that caliber.

This fight will likely be awful and then they will both gas and it will be doubly awful. Hopefully pillowhands loses.

Which one is pillowhands? Is it Maia? Because if that's the case this fight needs to be called the sleep over. Jake brought the blanket and Maia's got the pillows

Also just now realized this is five rounds....

Odd that they gave him Shields as sort of a display fight to maybe get him next in line. Hey Shields may be able to neutralize him. I mean hell, if Maia can easily grapple Fitch then he should be able to do it to SHields. But Shields probably can survive like Fitch. Totally controlling a guy with no sub finish isn't a great way to display Maia. He needs to take home a slick sub so people can get excited about his prospects for the belt.

Shields hasn't been the same since his father passed. He looks lost without having him in his corner. Hopefully he's got a good team he can allow his head to trust in like his dad. Otherwise and most likely Maia will put him away in the first 3 rounds. I'd actually like to see Maia get the win chalk up another couple then get GSP. I'd be interested to see how GSP would deal with Maia's submission game.

Jake is forever pillowhands. Maia doesn't have much pop either so maybe his hands are more like stiff and dense pillows and Jake's are soft and fluffy ones.

Yeah the 5 round thing is why I said it would get doubly awful. Jake is probably too good to get subbed, there won't be a knockout, and they both have mediocre cardio.

Disagree. Who GSP finishes being the champion?
What Maia has been doing to strong grapplers at 170 is pretty impressive and if he ragdolls Shields he should be put to fight GSP right away (or JH, who knows?).

I want to see Maia vs GSP badly.

I have a lot of good references in my head that influence me to believe Maia should win this.

I also know what Shields can do when hes on point. I have a gut feeling this is going to be a good fight and Shields very possibly could pull it out. He could also get steamrolled.

I don't see any way that Maia loses this aside from DQ (which is highly unlikely)
