I think Weidman has a good chance of winning this fight. If he can get him down it will get interesting.

Best chance we are going to have for a finish...but still very good chance we're going to have three lay and pray fights.

Chael Sonnen and Chris Weidman don't stall.

Weidman's going to choke out Maia? Sonnen's last finish aside from Stann was Kyacey Uscola in 2007.

Not only that check out the UC, how many of those fights you see getting a finish... this crowd might be vicious come this fight.

People want to be optimistic, I get it. But we went from having two really good close fights that weren't likely to go to the ground to two fights that will.

So if they don't finish they're stalling? Have you ever seen Weidman or Chael fight?

Chael Sonnen lost to Anderson Silva because he didn't stall, because he constantly worked and was throwing punches, hitting a guy in the face 300 times isn't stalling and his fight with Marquardt was amazing. Also no one is saying Weidman is gonna choke out Maia but the guy lost to Galvao three years ago on points in straight ju-jitsu. His grappling's pretty ******* good considering how young he is.

I personally see Maia winning the fight because I think he's too far of a step up for Weidman at this point especially taking the fight in under two weeks but the guy is picking up ju-jitsu insanely fast, trains out of Matt Serra's gym so you know he's been working on it there and win, lose, or draw will have a very bright future.

Big opportunity just fell into Weidman's lap. He probably didn't think twice about the short notice. Props to Maia for accepting the fight.

Weidman is opening as a 2:1 favorite or more everywhere I've checked.

Yes. Finally a high profile fight for Weidman. I think he has a very good chance of winning by points or tko. |Maia is super dangerous though. Can't wait!
