    Maia better not be over looking Alexander and with that said I expect Alex to KO Maia for trying to stand and bang with him.......

    Maia handled Fitch and Story like they were amateur fighters. You think Yakovlev is much better than them?

    I will be honest I think Maia is a beast. I just think the Russian cat is a tough out for anybody.....

    Yakovlev ain't KOing anyone. He's a grappler. Maia is probably subbing him.

    Maia is one of the most hot/cold fighters in the UFC. When he's on, he looks unbeatable. Such a streaky fighter

    Maia wins. He outstruck Weidman in the first round and would have won the 1st if it weren't for the takedown. His striking isn't all that bad

    I think we've seen the last of K-1 Maia. It's all about strong takedowns, crushing control and slick BJJ now.
