    I think this match up makes the most sense. Both are top tier fighters coming off losses. They need to fight each other so one of them get back onto the cream of the MW crop

    Maia is a WW
    Okami isn't in the UFC.

    Would have been an interesting MMA fight though. Maia beat Okami on points from his guard in a grappling match.

    Unless Maia gets booted from UFC, this fight won't be happening so soon.
    BUT, if they fought each other, it would be like Maia X Fitch. Grapplefuck with no submissions.

    I don't really see this happening. Okami has better TDD than Fitch, is larger, and is good at keeping the distance with his boxing. Maia can win but if he couldn't grapplefuck Okami in a grappling match, I only see an MMA fight making it easier for Okami because it adds strikes.
