    The Fabio Maldonado Curse = If you decision win against Maldonado, your mma career will go downhill afterwards.


    The first man to ever unanimous decision maldonado was senior omni santos.

    senior omni santos never fought in mma again after the win.





    next up is kingbury and pokrajac

    both fighters would never win the the ufc again after unanimous decisioning maldonado.

    Why did you take screenshots of FM's record for 2 of the 3 guys?

    yes, miocic is a decision fighter. 3 of his 5 ufc wins have come by UD and if he UD maldonado you can expect miocic to never win in the ufc again.

    A decision fighter? 2 of his 5 wins were against Nelson and Beltran, who aren't exactly easy to finish. The only one you can knock him for is Gonzaga.

    Well, if you're not good enough to finish Maldonado, you're probably not that amazing of a fighter. I don't think there's anything more to analyse than that.

    The best way to finish Fabio is by knee bar, or having the doctor stop it.

    This will be right. He will beat the living shit out of Maldonado then have to face a top 5 HW and lose. Most likely get the jds fight again as the Cain werdum fight holds up the division.

    Hmm I can see Stipe decisioning Fabio then fight JDS and be ktfo. However, Stipe will eventually break the curse by winning again in the UFC.

    The curse might, however, be broken in 2 months since Kinsbu is coming back to fight at FOX 12.

    The opposite of the Mir curse, actually. The Mir curse is if you finish Frank you will get murdered your next fight.

    Only Lesnar avoided the Mir curse. He survived the Carwin barrage, then got murdered the next fight after that.

    Overeem and Cormier are the only fighters intelligent enough to not tempt fate by not finishing Mir.

    He is simply fighting bottom of the barrel fighters. Glover is fine.

    Wow! So much fail in this post.
    Maldonado is very hard to finish!

    You can beat him to UD, but let us not trash one of the biggest hearts in the UFC!
