    At WW he's 7-1 (He was robbed against Shields) and he won the first round against Rory who beat the crap out of Lawler for 4 rounds.

    He's also a class act.

    Would love to see Maia become UFC champ.

    Maia needs one top 5-6 win and he gets that title shot and becomes champ.

    He is a class act but you're wrong on everything else. He not yet deserving of a tithe shot.

    I think it's safe to say Maia is deserving of a title eliminator. He knocked back to young prospects, he's ready to get another top 5 opponent.

    For beating Magny? Everyone knew Magny was over hyped. Who has Maia beaten?

    I can't see Maia beating the top 4. Condit and Brown would be interesting.

    Like both fighters a lot, Lawler more but i dont think Maia is ready yet probably needs 2 more against top guys. Like to see him go with Condit.

    Maia should fight condit next or woodley next. Whoever wins should be #1 contender.

    Every fight starts standing. I mean, ya, Maia has a decent shot at getting a sub IF it gets to the ground, but Lawler has demonstrated really good take down defence as of lately.

    Maia should be banned from 5 rounders but oh yeah, on sherdog you're only as good as your last fight

    Maia wouldn't make it out of the first round against Lawler.

    Pass.

    Who does Maia win against? He certainly isn't getting Carlos Condit by beating Neil Magny.

    Close decision = robbery

    On sherdog, of course.
