"I think Nick Diaz and Jon Fitch that opponents would surely have much name this division and I would climb fast. The others, I think they are marked with struggles, but these two guys are certainly very tough and they would have proved much I climb in the division.

I think the two have much jiu-jitsu. Both with Nick as with Fitch. Both are good with that, just that I feel more focused on the Fitch's wrestling than with his jiu-jitsu, and Nick is a guy more with boxing than jiu-jitsu."

Maia vs Diaz would be epic!

 

Not gonna lie though, I think Nicks BJJ is strong enough to hang with Maia.

It appears Maia's been reading our threads.

I think Maia loses to Nick, and beats Fitch.

I also think Fitch has a good chance to beat Nick though.

Maia/Fitch and Maia/Diaz would be great fights, I'd lean towards Fitch and Diaz to beat Maia but he impressed me in the Story fight and he has a legit shot at beating both imo.

The fight vs nick is the most interesting. Nick is much better on the feet, it's not even close, I'd give maia the bjj edge but only slightly.
It would come down to wrestling and top control. In a three round fight if Maia gets a take down early in each round while I believe nick has the skills to avoid the sub he'd be in defense the entire fight and would lose on the scorecards.
Nick keeps it standing then Maia is gonna get busted up. Phone Post

Lol. Maia could most certainly take Diaz down. The question is can he keep up with Diaz's pace and energy Phone Post

This sounds about right. 5 rounds I'd pick Diaz, 3 rounds I would take Maia.

I don't think Maia would beat Fitch Phone Post

Maia vs Fitch is fantastic.

As for Diaz, I'd rather see him fight Rory if he gets by Penn.
