I would rank them at the same level, because Maia has had slightly better wins at MW, but Bisping has been in the cage with tough LHW's and won them all, but 1 close split decision to one of the best LHW's in the world.

If they were to fight it would be really close and after the Quarry fight i was picking Maia, but since things have settled down and had time to think am edging it to Bisping. Because he very strong at MW at it would will be hard for Maia to get him down, and theres no way Maia is winning the stand up.

I agree mostly with DJ Syko- they are razor close in rankings in my eyes. Though I will give Maia a much better chance against Bisping. Rashad took Bisping down multiple times though obviously he has the wrestling background. But Maia is absolutely filthy on the ground and IMO he needs just one takedown to sub Bisping.

He put on a clinic against Quarry so much so that I felt badly for Nate to have such a long layoff and then smothered in such a quick manner.

This is a fight they should make but I don't trust the UFC match-making at all right now.

I dont know about Maia being better to be in another league than Bisping, but i can sure agree on Bisping being overrated.

No exciting fight whatsoever, except when he had a retard blocking knees with his arms and asking for more.

He is just a big MW, hyped by TUF, and decently rounded, with good strategy and all around standup.

Is he in top MW contention? for sure. Is he going to beat Maia? Its a close fight for sure.

Maia, lets not jump too quick to conclusions.

Sick grappling, oh yes. Anything else? Id like to see more fights. Also, dont take for granted he can take Bisping down, or even get close.

Leben, despite sucking and being a crappy fighter, still can be given credit to usually get the fight going, and Bisping completly closed him to a point where Leben was completly pissed off and was giving free shots..

Bisping doesnt give a crap if its boring, he wants to keep that close to perfect record

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

dontazo is the biggest hater, he talks so much BS

Leben was going to destroy Bisping too, but it didn't happen

I have very little doubt that Bisping would beat Maia, I'd love to see them fight, when Bisping beats Maia, all of you will find an excuse for Maia loss, and find another reason to hate...

I was never a Bisping fan but he went from crazy overrated to crazy underrated so I find myself defending him a lot. However In the MW division Maia has done way more then Bisping.

I'm not sure how anyone can even debate that. Maia ATM should be way ahead in the title picture then Bisping but he obviously isn't due to name power.
