    Can Nate defend the single leg?

    How many times has he said “one more fight”? Just getting sad at this point

    Not really interested in that fight Nate would pick him apart. Maia should retire

    I think Maia’s contract is up so I doubt we see him again

    Every fighter respects Nate yet most of Sherdog can't pull their heads out of their asses.

    War Maia. He probably won't get the fight, but I hope the best for him in whatever he does next.

    Dana already said he's not looking to book another fight for him. I reckon he's headed for PFL.

    Maia vs Diaz isn't the type of fight UFC or Diaz fans want, if you close your eyes you can practically see the boos as Maia chases him around for sloppy single legs lol, it would be a stinker.

    What if it backfires and Maia gets Nate down but loses by sub? It’s possible.

    Nate is probably the only fighter with the guts enough to eagerly pull guard on Maia.

    It really could be fun too, especially for 5 rounds.

    Nate doesn't have the td defense so Demian could at least go out on a win.

    I'd be okay with giving him a red panty night and let Nate retire him in a 6 round fight.

    Leon arguably outgrappled Nate and took his back. Not arguably, Leon outgrappled Nate. Imagine what Maia would do to him still.

    UFC don't want this fight.
