I'd say it's about 30%. It all depends if Maia gets Anderson on the ground.

Even if Maia get's Anderson down, the chances are very slim that he will actually submit such a legit Black Belt! It's not a BJJ tournament with a GI and without strikes.

Even if this happens Maia will have to pray that Silva never watched TUF the other night when Tito gave away the magical secret on how to escape a triangle every time.

ROFL it's not going to happen. Silva will control the stand up...he'd be a fool to grapple with him, but even if he did I don't see him submitting Silva. Silva isn't some amateur, he's the ******* champ. It's been 6 years since anyone has submitted him, and since anyone has beat him...get real guys; Demian is going to get rocked even worse than he did with marquardt, waste of a fight for Silva but I'm excited to watch him whoop another guy's ass. Hopefully he pulls some matrix style moves like he did with Forrest.

Maia by flying triangle! I just really want to see a flying submission.

Also, I just really want to see the entire MMA world shit its pants if Silva loses.

When did you come back!? Hasn't been the same without our trivia, Tony.


Also, that picture is (kind of) in my sig Great shop for sure.

Maia takes this via flying triangle.

You do realize he's not only a BJJ tournament God but he's won ADCC right? ADCC is no gi. The only difference is now is strikes and I think he's acclimated to that fairly well as evident against Miller.
