    Like this matchup. Demians on the decline and Ryans a great prospect. Can definitely see LaFlare decisioning him

    Great fight. Maia may struggle with laflares athleticism and diverse striking . I don't think Maia has declined at all, he's just fighting good competition

    I like it. LaFlare is solid, but I have Maia here.

    Ryan LaFlare - the guy that cannot finish anyone in the UFC?

    LaFlare by decision, but I'd like to see him finally get a finish.

    Really?You don't think he's shown a huge decline in cardio?Have you been watching his fights?


    As far as the fight it's interesting for sure,I think Maia wins in the first or Ryan by decision,probably the decision.

    Wow this card is shaping up.


    So far we have

    Faber/Assuncao
    Maia/LaFlare
    Silva/Saunders
    Thomson/Burns

    If Jacare/Romero gets added this card is stacked for a free card

    Would definitely be nice to see him finish Maia standing, but with a guy as tough as Maia I doubt it. He should dominate the stand up game however.

    LaFlare is a very good prospect,with a win over Maia he could enter in the top 10

    LaFlare is a beast. I see this playing out a lot like Rory vs. Maia.

    I think I'll take Maia. I haven't been all that impressed by Laflare

    He went from Mike Pierce, to Mike Pyle, to Bad Boy Yakovlvev. LaFlare is a more promising fighter than all three of those.

    Good to see Maia back in there. I'll be rooting for him.
