Thales Leites welcomes fight against Demian Maia

Quote:
Id accept a fight, Im a professional. Demian is a great fighter and has been doing a great job in UFC. Its possible that they put this fight, because the belt is with a Brazilian guy and were growing, so they can put this fight to take one of the Brazilians from the tops. I believe itd be a good fight, we almost have the same game and its kind of different from the American guys, who goes from striking and work on the ground n pound. We know each others game and itd be a huge fight. Demian has been doing a good job, but Id accept this fight.

Thales Leites who is on a five-fight UFC win streak (5-1 overall) has no problems taking a fight against Demian Maia sometime down the road. Maia is on a four-fight tear of his own inside the Octagon, winning all four of his fights via submission. Locking the two Brazilians inside the cage would go a long way toward helping determine the top contender in the division. It would also be one hell of a ground war each fighter boasts sick jiu-jitsu ski

It would be a great war I think, but I'd take Maia, probably late 2nd round submission. I'd expect it to look a lot like his fight MacDonald, probably more polished.

this fight should definitely happen. I cant pick a winner as they both have sick BJJ but fights that are very close are usually great so bring it on. I want Leites to win though.

winner will be very close to a title shot.

This fight makes sense. I'd like to see it if the Bisping fight doesn't come through. Of course I'd be rooting for Maia.
