    Would love to see who has the better jiujitsu of the two. It's beautiful watching either of them go to work.

    I'd love to see it. This could be on the Aldo/Mcgregor card.
    I'll take Maia via UD

    Gunnar finishes him by T/KO or decision most likely. Wouldn't be shocked if he rocked him and then subbed him, like what he did to the MUCH bigger Thatch, dropped and choked him out immediately.

    I will GLADLY sig bet or AV bet for this fight 'when' it goes down. It's just a matter of time. Hopefully it's up next.

    Nelson is very elusive with his movement, I don't know if Demian would be able to get a hold on him, and on the feet Nelson looks better than Demian. I think it'd be a boring fight.

    i cream at the idea of a ground fight but it would probably just be a kickboxing match

    THIS is the fight to make. It would be such a shame if it barely hit the mat.

    Shields/Maia ended up being a ground war.

    How many top 15 prospects do you need Maia to beat before you give him a top ten opponent again ffs?

    He's 37 and he doesn't have time to waste.
