Maia calls for fight with Fitch or Diaz next
Being that he took little damage in said fight, Maia has the rare opportunity to strike while the iron is hot. In a recent interview with Tatame, he showed interest in two top welterweights, Jon Fitch and Nick Diaz:
"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."
