Maia v Almeida Ufc make it happen!!!

I was thinking about this fight the other day and seriously how good do you guys think this would be** I think this could honestly be one of the most technical fights the ufc has to offer and would love to see it** I couldn't predict a winner as i feel it could go either way but im sure we would get our moneys worth

I like the idea, do ya think that they would take it to the ground to test eachother? or do ya think they would keep it standing and try to maybe expose eachothers weaker side?

I think Maia may be slightly better on the ground, but yeah forsure a fun fight!

I feel both would try and keep it standing but eventually itwould see it on the ground and we would see some world class Jitz

Maia is a better BJJ practitioner, he is arguably the best in the World**

While Almeida isn't "arguably" the best in the World**

I would rather see Maia fight some guys who have better chance of beating him, I know he can beat guys like Almeida, Palhares****** Why not stick him against guys who are better strikers/wrestlers than him? More of a challenge since he's not going to lose to ANYONE on the ground in the UFC/MMA in his weightclass**

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

when is the last time we've seen to two awesome, high ranked bjj fighters put on a fun bjj display? sorry folks, but it usually turns into a boring stalemate

shamrock: isn't Almeida one of the only 3rd degree bb's in all of bjj?

I like Maia a lot and I'm a huge Almedia fan** This match up could really suck if it turns into Franca vs Aurelio and unlike those two these two don't hate each other**

On the ground While Maia is better that doesn't mean he will win on the ground**

Almedia has a lot of expierence and his ground **** is world class so it's very possible Almedia can hang with Maia on the ground in MMA**

I mean Anderson hung with Lutter and Anderson's ground **** isn't near as good as Almedia's

Nog vs Werdum was pretty fun on the ground aaronyman don't you think?

Helio Gracie is 10th degree**

I'd take Maia's ADCC and World titles over Almeida's 3rd degree belt, I'm not saying Almeida is a scrub, he's a brilliant BJJ practitioner** Like Joe Rogan says, there are levels**I think Maia would win the rounds**

I also doubt Almeida is at the level he was at a few years ago, POSSIBLY**

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Macdonald isn't a highly ranked BJJ guy** In BJJ Almedia is 100x more respected then Macdonald**

No offense to Jason**

I would love to see this fight,
I think actually Almeia is the better pure BJJ practioner while Maia's has adapted his better to MMA, this fight could really go either way and no matter what I want to see it**
