    Could Maia drag him down for an RNC? Would Thompson finish him on the feet? Would we see the return of K1 Maia?

    How would this fight go?

    It would go with Maia trying for a single leg over and over with Wonderboy defending each one while he point fights . Wonderboy would win a lackadaisical 30-27 decision that would tell us nothing .

    It'd probably be boring with Maia hugging Wonderboy against the cage..

    Maia's takedows are telegraphed, non-explosive and his striking is barely a threat. He is the exact opposite of Burns, who is dangerous on the feet and has power, which makes setting up takedowns way easier. He is also younger and waay more explosive.

    I say Wonderboy kicks his face in and possibly wins by KO.

    If Maia came rushing in he'd get KO'd. Conversely I could also see it being a snoozer.

    30-27 Wonderboy or TKO/KO after round 1.

    Seriously? Maia by sub/grapplefuck, or Wonderboy by Dec/TKO/KO.

    IMO Maia drags him down and submits him.

    ...or he gasses out and is beaten until the end of the fight for a decision loss...

    I like Maia, but Wonderboy would beat the everliving shit out of him.

    WB knocks him out. Maia from a few years ago vs today’s WB? I would favor Maia

    Wonderboy by TKO inside two rounds. I also have a feeling that in his next fight he is going to be much more agressive.

    Maia has nowhere near the strength and obviously youth of Burns, so I think Wonderboy cruises to a UD there.
