    Luke would probably start on top since he is the better wrestler

    So yeah what happens?

    I think it would be pretty evenly matched, Maia probably gets closer to a submission though

    Maia would hit him with a half guard sweep if Rockhold gets on top.

    If Rockhold is on the ground he is probably KOd these days.

    Rockhold would turn his face in dog food. Or Maia would knock him out from the bottom. Coin toss.

    Rockhold prob has the best top game in the ufc. We just forgot about it because he thinks striking is what he should do and hasnt made it to the ground in 3 fights.

    Rockhold by viscous gnp.

    Whoever is on top wins. Both have dominant top control.

    Yeah because Maia’s guard game = Weidman or Machida Tier lol

    You think Rockhold could survive in Maia’s guard without getting swept or submitted?

    As much as I hate to say it, I think Rockhold takes due to physicality. Would like to see Maia get the KO from gogoplata.

    From what I've seen, Maia seems to have better top control than guard game. I haven't watched any of his BJJ matches, but based on the Shields fight controlling Maia is definitely possible.

    Maia is one of the ONLY dudes in MMA who can mess you up from the bottom. Even if he doesn’t get a sub he’ll most likely get a sweep in the transition. Did it to Gunnar, Shields, Masvidal, and countless others.

    Also Shields Maia was back and forth. He couldn’t expose himself with GnP in fear of overextending and losing position. They both got too control numerous times using sweeps.

    He was going for takedowns in his last fight but couldn't score any.

    Rockhold finishes Maia if he’s on top of him imo. His top game is great for mma.
