    I see a lot of people saying that Colby was getting pieced up by K1 Maia in the first round but Maia gassed and that is why he lost.

    The first round was close and although Colby got bloodied up he outlanded Maia in each round.

    Round 1 - 37 vs 29
    Round 2 - 22 vs 11
    Round 3 - 29 vs 13

    Maia landed at a higher percentage to be fair but Colby landed 88 strikes and defended 13 takedowns.

    88 strikes is the most landed by an opponent against Maia, to be fair Nate KOed him with one punch but it is still impressive. If you look at Maia's previous 6 opponents before Colby, so Woodley, Masvidal, Condit, Brown, Nelson and Magny, their combined strike output against Maia was 109 strikes.

    Round 2 and Round 3 were total domination by Colby, so much so that by the end of the 3rd round, the fight was on the verge of being stopped, look at Maia's bloodied face and the position he was in.

    Maia is 40 but that didn't stop him from destroying fighters like Condit, Nelson, Brown, Mangy etc in just a few rounds.

    Colby does deserve some hate for some of the things he has done, but his performance against Maia was the best against him since Nate Marquardt. Woodley is a tough fight for him but he definitely can win it.

    War Chaos!

    I think it'd be a bad night for Colby in this scenario...

    No myth and stats don t matter. After seeing Maia fight for x time you have to be full of shit to praise somebody who gets hit by Maia on the feet.

    The Colbster looked like shit and allegedly called the cops on Maia in the dressing room after the fight.

    Maia has a reputation for shitty striking. The fact Colby looked just as bad is why people are harping on this. It was a typical MMA fight against two low-level strikers who are better grapplers.

    Colby has turned in the most dominant performances in MMA history against Demian Maia, Max Griffin, Dong Hyun Kim, and Bryan Barbarena.

    Colby bless.

    I cant believe anyone who watched that fight thinks Colby could do anything to Woodley other than get violently KO'd by him

    Colby is a decent fighter but hes a shit person and will only be remembered for talking a load of shit, getting hit with a boomerang then crying on social media about it

    lol @ riding his dick because he outstruck K1 Maia. Nuthuggers used to have higher standards here.

    The fight was a stinker, his performance was shit. Deal with it.

    Nah.

    Maia looked like a pro boxer in the first round.

    Maia doesn't gas and he cruises to a victory.

    The Colby haters are some of the most delusional mma fans on this site. It was a great performance where Colby managed to

    1. Avoid being taken down by Maia
    2. Walk through all punches like nothing
    3. Battered Maia and broke him mentally and then physically.
    4. Beatdown Maia worse in 15 mins than Woodley+Prime Silva did in 50 mins
