    Love both fighters but the style vs style matchup almost guarantees a forgettable fight. Maia is on his last fight, Ben is on somewhat thin ice if he can't win and do so somewhat convincingly...
    Maia has declined immensely but at his age, no peds etc. You expect him to slow down.

    Just a headscratcher of a bout imo.

    What's the potential upside scenario?

    And if it's a scramble heavy back n forth where both guys leave it all in there I'll be the first to happily admit I was flat out wrong.
    But i fear we're in for a conservative stalemate since Ben needs the W pretty badly and Maia seems to have used his last bit of mojo on Brown/Condit/split dec. Against Mas.

    I hope you're right but it has the ingredients to be lackluster.

    Dana is probably hoping Ben gets tapped so he can cut him lol

    The card is actually shaping up not too badly.

    As a maia fan, I would have preferred a 3 rounder, but I know that Maia and his camp believe that 5 rounds will give things a chance to play out more organically. It's likely that Maia gasses, but BJJ takes time and 5 rounds gives Maia more opportunities to grab something.
