I'm a fan of both guys but once Munoz gets Maia to the ground and lands some of his GnP I think it will be over. Standing I actually would give the edge to Maia, his boxing has come a long ways since the Marquardt fight. Tricky matchup either way.

Maia by submission. I think he will outpoint Munoz on the feet for a bit and then reverse a takedown, end up on top and get some sort of choke.

I love the sleepy dominant style Maia has been using lately. He performs great but has a fedor-esque look on his face the whole time like he couldn't give two shits.



I think Maia easily outstrikes Munoz standing and avoids any powershots, forces Munoz to sprawl then does his patented reverse sprawl to guard move.

This is a pick'em for me. Great fight, great match of styles. Munoz has looked far better than Maia recently, but i think Maia is much more talented and has more experience against better competition. I'll go with Munoz though, Maia couldnt sub Kendall Grove in 3 rounds of having him on the floor, and i think Munoz will stuff more takedowns and win the stand up for a UD win.

Uhh...


I guess you missed where Maia dominated Grove easily, taking him down at will and controlling him on the ground for two rounds then beating him standing easily for the third round... Then Grove vs. Munoz where Munoz nearly got finished a half dozen times by Grove in a fight where the first 2 rounds were 10-8.

Munoz has had 3 fights since then, so i wouldnt call the Grove fight 'recent'. May aswell bring in the Maia-Marquardt fight if we're going back that far.

Its not hard to take Grove down at will and with the jui jitsu credentials of Maia, it was dissappointing not to see him submit him. With Munoz's wrestling he'll be a lot harder to take down, and he'scoming off a great knockout of CB Dolloway within a minute.

Maia. I don't think Mark can last on the ground without being subbed, and Maia will outpoint him all day long standing. I think he'll get Munoz down similar to how he took Sonnen down, and finish it from there relatively quickly.
