Yeah, I know. Anyone can submit anyone if they happen to catch them right. I guess I was basically saying that I wasn't impressed by Maia in the fight with Miller. I also just flat out don't think Maia is deserving of a title shot right now. The man gets ko'd in 20 seconds and then has an ok unanimous decision victory and gets a title shot. I don't like that. I understand that Sonnen got hurt so Maia was given the shot, but I would much rather see Silva fight at 205 than defend against Maia right now.
