Nate Marquardt vs. Demian Maia

On a scale from 1-10 how interested are you in seeing this fight?

Who do you think wins?


I personally would rather see these 2 fight for a shot at the title, than see one of them for Anderson right away. (I think Anderson still outstrikes and beats both by TKO)

I'd rather Demian have a bit more experience before getting a title shot. Anderson would be a huge step up in competition for him, and he's only been fighting for 3 years.

No point in rushing him to a premature title shot when you got Thales Leites, then Okami, then Bisping/GSP/whoever else

I'd rather see Maia v. Anderson Silva before Spiderman retires. Otherwise it will be the big fight we always wish had happened. Nate can then fight Maia.

Nate is a horrible match for Maia. Honestly Nate vs Okami/Franklin is long overdue.

I think this fight needs to happen, it would be a shame if this isn't their next fight. I said too close to call, if I had to chose it'd be Nate by decision. If Nate gets sharper hands he could get the ko/tko. I also think Maia could win by anything, even a tko because Nate lets himself get hit and Maia will swing. Nate recovers well so it probably wouldn't be until late in the fight if it happens.

Marquardt, TKO. Maia isn't ready.
