    Sonnen was coming out of a win over prime Filho, and for the casuals out there, going through a Filho fight back then with out getting subed easily was a big fucking deal.
    To think that Maia is still even improving.

    Honestly, Condit's gameplan should be avoiding clinches and TDs at all cost.

    [email protected] Prime Filho....Prime Filho subbed Sonnen in round 2. Paulo left his prime the exact moment it became clear he was interacting with a paranormal being in their second fight.

    Bullshit! He ended Filho's undefeated, super dominant streak with that rematch! and Filho kept winning dominantly after that!
    Filho probably started to suck starting 2010, but he was a beast's beast up untill then!

    In the mean streets of West Linn, Oregon, a man who wraps his legs around a gangster's neck is not called a winner. He's called... well, not a winner. Chael bless.


    jk, I love Maia and this submission is a thing of beauty.

    You should watch that fight again.

    One of the strangest, most depressing performances of all time.

    Anybody on planet earth could have beaten Paulo that night.

    If dominance is getting the ever loving piss kicked out of you by Melvin Manhoef before..shock..catching him with a submission. Winning an insanely boring decision vs. Schoenauer(and i actually watched that fight, it was on Arona's comeback fight card). He subbed a couple villagers and then started losing to just about everybody.

    It was a sag throw. Chael was never an elite wrestler, if you hang around long enough you start placing in the nationals and get to claim "I almost made the Olympic team." Sag throws are bush league. Neither one should ever hold a belt in mma. But Maia's jits may be the best.

    no matter what Carlos can do on the ground, which is substantial, his plan should always be to keep it standing.

    there was a strange moment when Maia had top mount. It looked like he leaned down and said something to Sonnen. Got the tinfoil hat going in my brain.
