"Maia could'nt finish Miranda and Grove is far better than him"

Is Grove necessarily better on the ground than Miranda?

Almeida, a small MW and now a WW, took Grove down repeatedly. The way Maia tooled Miranda, a wrestler with a BJJ black belt, would suggest that this fight will hit the floor and quick.


Exactly. People are sleeping on Miranda who's definitely a beast. Maia outclassed him easily.

Lite - Actually feel bad for Maia. He gets nothing with a win, and a loss totally derails his struggle toward another title shot. <img src="/images/phone/post_tag.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


Second fight in a row with this dynamic for Maia. Does the UFC have something against him? I can see that he shouldn't be back in the mix with the top guys yet (partly because he's fought three of them before), but why isn't he fighting mid-tier guys in the middleweight division like Leben, Okami, Bisping etc?

Anyway, should at least be a good fight to watch. Go Maia.

If Palhares beats Marquardt and Maia is victorious in this fight, I'd really like to see Maia vs Palhares.
Paul Harris vs Lynn Harris had some great moments on the ground.

Kendall Grove has been a major disappointment since I informed everybody I knew that he was a lock to win the TUF 3 MW contract after about the second episode.

And you don't even want to know where I think Palhares goes from here if he beats Nate Marquardt; more about that if he does.
