    That would be a great match up to see for the fans. I think Maia would beat Thompson but I am sure everybody else thinks Thompson would walk right through him but I don't think so. I think Maia is a absolute stylistic nightmare for Thompson and it would be awesome to see this fight.

    Maia is fighting Condit in 20 days.

    A better one to make for Wonderboy is a title fight.

    Thompson gets subbed in round 1, I think. It's a horrible matchup for him.

    This.

    As for the hypothetical matchup though, I think Wonderboy has just what it takes to avoid Maia's standard gameplan.

    This is stupid. Woodley needs to fight someone. No one deserves it more than Wonderboy who just beat the top 2 contenders. Maia vs Thompson doesn't make sense.

    Maia is a boring fuck

    Thompson is explosive and great entertainment.

    Maia would beat Woodley but Wonderboy would school them both

    I'm hoping Condit beats Maia.

    But regardless, Wonderboy has done way more to earn a title shot than Woodley ever did and the right fight to make is for Woodley to stop ducking and actually fight him.

    If maia beats Condit he should only accept a title fight and nothing else

    If GSP is coming back. How about Woodley vs. GSP and Wonderboy vs. Nick Diaz

    Wonderboy shouldn't have to clean out the division to get a title shot. This is bullshit.

    Agreed. He more than deserves the shot. I pray they make that fight and let gsp fight someone else like robbie

    i dont get it. a good fight to make at this time? when maia is already booked to fight condit? what on earth are you talking about?
    there's only 2 options for woodley. he fights GSP if GSP comes back, or he fights the #1 contender WB.
