I'm not sure what to expect in this fight. Maia has been rag dolling strong wrestlers at 170, but Shields is good at winning ugly. I could see him trying to press Maia up against the cage for five rounds and making this a boring grinder. That being said, I'll still pick Maia to win. He's good at getting guys down from the clinch, and he's proven that at 170, someone being a better wrestler than him means nothing. What he did to Fitch and Story can't be overlooked. Fitch is a seasoned grinder who has imposed his wrestling on many great fighters at 170, and Story is a very strong wrestler himself and Maia made them both look otherwise.

This will be an interesting match up.

I got Maia and probably easy.

But Shields is know to surprise in these moments and may win a crappy striking contest.

But gotta go with Brazil in Brazil.

I'm pulling for this fight to be a grappling match on the matt. I think Shields is being overlooked a little. I think Shields will make this a good fight. I hope Shields wins this, but I think its 60/40 for Maia to win

I don't think Maia will submit Shields. I see this one going the distance. I just hope if Shields does win, it's not a snoozer.

I'd say 60/40 Maia is about right. It being in Brazil helps his case.

Shields might not always be an exciting fighter, but he is a great JJ guy and yes Maia is better, but Shields is good enough to hang with Maia on the ground in a MMA match.

It's hard for me to count Shields out, the guy finds ways to win, even though they may not always be exciting. Maia has been absolutely monstrous at 170 though, so I'm looking to him for a great finish in a great fight.

Thanks to Killz for the great sig!
