I highly doubt he will ever be champion, ever.
Hendricks would completely starch him.
Hendricks and lawler and condit and maybe lombard would all ruin him (again for lawler and condit)

Still trying to figure out if it was the body kick that landed flush at the start of round 2 or if Maia was gassed by the end of the first round. Anyway, I thought it was a great fight. Maia easily takes the first, Rory easily takes the second and Maia had a chance to take the third with the takedown but couldn't do it. Good stuff.

I am thinking in a combination of the two things. Maia was Maia in the first round only, for sure.

Don't know what was up with Maia he just went 5 rounds and then he gasses after one.

He seemed to start to gas as soon as he got into some striking exchanges.

Didn't he actually do pretty good in the striking exchanges in the first round though? I remember he tagged Rory pretty good.

Yeah, but I think it was the case where Rory was more ready to react to the takedown than anything. If Maia had 1 punch KO power like Hendricks then Rory would have been starched.

This fight sucked from the moment Maia blew up his gastank. I am kind of surprised that Rory did not finish him after that.

I could not understand Maia strategy as well. I think the same way he offered Sonnen free lessons on how to avoid getting caught in the triangle he could learn one thing or two from him about charging your opponent chin to the chest until you have a grip anywhere and drag him down.
Those TD attempts were spotted miles away even my grandma could see them. He definitely should just charge Rory until cornering him against the cage, because it was clear Rory wasn't a KO threat at the moment. IDK. Easy to speculate from here anyway.

Yeah not going for the clinch when that is where he is best at getting takedowns, constantly circling to Rory's power side, and eating punches to the head and kicks to the body to land leg kicks when he sucks at throwing them. His strategy was pretty bad.
