Demian Maia: "I'd be lying if I said I was going to exchange with Silva."

bloodyelbow said:
"I knew about it last night. I still can’t believe it. My manager called me and they asked if I wanted to fight for the belt. I said ‘of course, you don’t even have to ask it’."

"I’ll have time to prepare an strategy. I’m coming from a heavy training and I’m in a fight rhythm. I’ll let my body rest this week and I’ll start the training next week".

"...I’ll go train boxing with Luis Carlos Dorea (Nogueira brothers Boxing coach) for sure. My physical preparation wlll be with (Rafael) Alejarra."

"If I say to you that I’m gonna exchange with him I’ll be lying. It’s the same thing if I say he’ll go to the ground with me. But I’ll go to this fight ready for everything. It’s a title fight and the title always was my dream. I imagined having this title shot a year ago, but I had two more fights and God, for one reason, gave it to me now."

His gameplan was never much of a question, still interesting to see what he has to say though.

Anderson via any way he wants to win, including on the ground.

I respect his ground game and think he will come up with a good gameplan.

But the fight starts on the feet not the ground.....

My point being, i don't see Maia even touching Anderson with his hands, alone be able to grab a hold and get a takedown to top position....

I hope im wrong and Maia puts on an amazing show, but id be lying if i said i believed that

If the fight even touches the ground it would be because Maia like pulled guard, but like the Thales fight, Anderson would just land a couple shots and stand up....

Anderson wouldn't win a submission match and I'm hard pressed to believe he'll win on the ground unless Demian gets rocked and dropped or makes a massive mistake (latter of which won't happen).


EDIT:


Maia by Flying Scissor Heel Hook.


I went there.

I agree no Subs for Anderson unless he does what he did to Henderson, and then RNC....

And id mail u a 1000$ for guessing Flying Scissor heel hook like Torres.... EVen if i had to sell a kidney! LOL

It's what I do lol. Ever land a flying submission on someone? I landed a flying triangle on my training partner Justin in sparring once and he didn't say anything for about an hour. He's Italian and loud as they come, too.

They're THAT epic.
I believe you Tra I believe you^^ those are probably the supreme disciplines! ;)

Watching that Thales fight again, Anderson was doing some Funky leg/knee kicks, and with everything improved since then, this is going to be interesting to see how much Anderson has gotten better.

...I was remembering Thales Leites when he kept stalling Anderson lying on his back, refusing to stand. Maia's Jiu Jitsu is a notch better than Silva's. I hope it doesn't turn into a stalemate like that fight was.

Here's a good gameplan for Maia- Attack Anderson with reckless abandon like Leben & Griffin...lol!:thumb02:

lol, if maia does something like that i would piss myself. only thing is if he tries a flying sub woudn't he be open for silva to punch him in the face?

-i hope maia spends 24/7 training his standup for this fight. he might want to bring in jds,rampage,wanderlei,gsp, and bj penn just to make sure he covers all his bases in every weight class. If he does that he might be able to last long enough to somehow get silva down.

LOL! I know it was a first for me....

He was just trying to take away that "Burst" in his takedowns... LOL

I wonder if he planned to punch him there or just thought about hurting his legs so much that he threw a punch there....

Cause any leg kick would of been a much harder blow lol....

Could of been pure messing with him too like u said lol

If Anderson loses, its going to be because of his ego. Theres always a chance that he takes Maia lightly, doesn't care about this fight, and thinks hes invincible going into it, then Maia jumps guard and triangles him.

I think Anderson is to much of a professional to take him lightly, and way to big and a winning record.... He wants to be undefeated in UFC when he leaves it
