"True warrior"... that's just great.
He can't pay the mortgage with "true warrior".
Yawn. Poor kiddo. Make sure you pay mommy and daddy their wifi bill. Can't get pussy living in their basement all your life.
Great to hear a fan of stand up fights appreciate Maia. I met Demian once and he was really cool and gracious to everyone.
Seems some people here have a short memory and don’t remember he’s given us some of the most exciting submissions in UFC history.
As a Maia fan I laughed my ass off reading this.
Maia is a stud. He's been criticized for two stinker title fights, but you forget it takes two to tango. Forever a fan.
It's a dangerous matchup for anyone, although Woodley basically made the blueprint on how to beat him (high level TDD + outbox him as he gasses and gets increasingly desperate for TD), Colby copied his strategy to win, so it stands to reason Usman will try the same thing, but maybe Maia will have some tricks up his sleeve this time.
Not even. I 100% believe it.
BJJ tournys aren't fights
Absolutely. The guy has more finishes than decisions and yet some people claim he's the epitome of a snooze fighter. He made ground specialists like Fitch and Nelson look like white belts and I still can't get over how such a nice guy like Maia was the one to dish out the nastiest submission victory I've ever seen against Rick Story. Watching that was harder than any one punch KO ever, pure brutality. The only thing I could hold against him is that this tenacity and creativity he usually has to get people under control and choke them out seems to completely disappear once he's in a title fight.
Who did he duck? Go duck yourself retard
Anytime a failed TD turned into a cowering roll onto back, hoping the ref would change the rules just for him and make the one trying to fight crawl into Maia's submissive receiving position
One does not simply remove Maia from back control.
How does Maia beat Usman?
I have no idea, but I hope somehow he gets it done.
I’m still sour about how he got played on his title shot. He earned it 1-2 fights before he got it and when they did finally gave it to him, it was under the circumstances of a quick turnaround and a short camp. He deserved better than that and not just because he’s freakin 40 years old but because he is a true warrior.
I hope Maia can get the submission but Usman is about to copycat Covington game plan
Nothing but respect for Maia. Actually fought his way through the top 10 to earn his title shot the old fashioned way.
Allow take down
Control posture so face does not receive punches
Establish full mount
Punch face until opponent gives back
Take control of given back with body triangle
RnC opponent till tap or black out
Collect pay cheque
My reaction would to bite his lips off.
He has a journalism degree
As always War Mochila!
Fan a Useman too so not sure of my final pick, but should be a fun scrap.
