Definitely the toughest test yet for Maia. Nate is stronger, has better striking and if he can avoid being taken down (especially first round) then i see him giving Maia his first loss.

Nate by KO round 3.

This fight is tough. Every time I think a guy is going to outstike and control Maia for a decision, he dominates them in return and subs them in the first or second round.

I'm retarded, but I think Maya will win this by Unanimous Decision.

If Nate can somehow neutralize Maia on the ground then I can see him taking it. He was winning against Thales. I'd give the edge certainly to Maia, but they're pretty much on par in terms of BJJ skills. It was a good litmus test for Nate to see how he can handle a pure BJJ fighter.

Hendo should fight the winner of this then face Silva.

Don't see it going the distance, Maia wins on the ground and Marquardt on the feet is what I totally am seeing, and I thought Amir would win for the record.

I think thats a bit of a strech for Nate, I think he has a good chance in this, but it wont be anything to do with BJJ.

Actually what I meant was that his last opponent (Thales) is pretty much on par with Maia in the ground. Of course the edge going to Maia. Considering Nate did pretty well in that fight think it'll be pretty competitive.

Biggest Sportsman vs Least Sportsmanlike = I have no idea who is going to win this. I'm giving Maia the edge because no one has beaten him yet, and he has basically perfected BJJ for MMA. The guy finishes fights big time.
Nate the Great is tooooo good to count out though, and he wants another shot at Silva bad.
Not a very intelligent breakdown of the fight, but I don't care, I'm just really excited for this fight.

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.

I think Maia is light years ahead of Leites in BJJ and I know for sure hes a better striker, I know Nates talented but hes gonna get beat by Maia.
