    By a lot or a little? Would it even be close?

    I know this is slightly irrelevant since maia dropped to 170, but just a hypothetical question about two guys that have amazing bjj that have been in the same weight class.

    It would not even be close

    Maia wouldn't be able to get it to the ground and Moose would mangle him standing

    Yeah he probably does. Maia has a chance against any man ayt any weight, kind of like Manhoef, but different.. Maia is of course better than MM, but he doesn't match up well with GM.

    Maia hung in there with Anderson and Weidman, I'd guess he could avoid being finished by Mousasi. Gegard UD

    I don't think it would be a beating but Gegard would win. People underrate Maia's striking, he almost beat the chris in standup. Hurt munoz and dropped his last opponent

    I lol'd at his post fight interview when he said that was actually the first time he had knocked anyone down. The translator didn't pick up on that for some reason.

    Moose would win. Why do you want to see a WW fight a MW? I would prefer to see Moose fight the Alligator again.

    What makes you think that Maia is "better" than Mark Munoz? He did lose to the guy, did he not?

    Sure, he dropped to welterweight and picked up a couple of good wins. Who did he beat at middleweight that Mark Munoz couldn't have beaten? Sonnen? I guess. I think Sonnen beats Maia the majority of the time, though.

    Nate Marquadt KO'd Maia.

    Mousasi would beat him easily

    I don't think that you'd catch Maia running at Mousasi like that.

    Moose is a lot more aggressive than both of them two. I would say he would Babalu Maia in the 2nd.

    I'm starting to believe its not Maia's striking that is bad, its his cardio. All his defense goes out the window the moment he gasses which makes his striking look MUCH worst.
