Maia: My experience will make the difference


At UFC 170 welterweights Demian Maia and Rory MacDonald will face off in a pivotal match, as both are coming off losses and both are in a must-win situation to stay relevant in the title picture. Maia believes that it his experience that will give him the win in this fight:

"He has a good jiu-jitsu," he said. "That’s not his strongest weapon, but he’s the typical modern fighter. He knows how to do everything. He has a good jiu-jitsu and muay Thai, and good wrestling. He’s the new generation.

"He’s an excellent athlete. He has many things to prove and I’m happy to fight him. I know that a win over him brings great rewards. I’m fighting for a long time, not only in MMA but also jiu-jitsu, so I expect that my experience will make the difference in this fight."

Love Maia's respectful talk, he just wants to test his skills and knows who deserves what praise and respect. That's why despite his hit or miss style, I will ALWAYS watch him fight whether he fights a guy I cheer for more or not.
