I think Maia has better MMA BJJ than Thales Leites. I'm actually quite confident that he does. Leites couldn't submit Sakara when he had him on the ground.
This is a hard fight to predict. I think it could go either way. I had to ask my 11 year old nephew who he thought would win and he pointed to the picture of Maia, so I'm going with Maia by submission late in the fight.
This should be close.
