Demian Maia took the time to chat to MMAHQ about his upcoming fight with Kendall Grove and the transition from BJJ to MMA.

It doesn't sound like he'll try to stand and bang with Grove which is a good thing. I enjoy watching him use his BJJ in fights.

I've seen Grove at up to +300 on certain sites. He's worth a few at that price I think.

Maia comes across really well. I liked when he thanked the Ohio fans after he beat Ryan Jensen for being very respectful.

Maia's wrestling looked great against Miranda, so I believe he'll take Grove down and subs him early.

I love watching Maia fight. Such slick JJ, always looking to advance position and attempt submissions. One of my favourite fighters.

I predict a Maia victory, by way of good enough standup to hang with Grove and eventual grapplefuck.

Maia has beaten better fighters than Grove. I would give him a big edge in this fight. Grove has to use his lenght and jab to keep Maia off him. Should be a good fight.

I'm going to assume Grove gets cut if he loses.

Should be a good fight. Curious to see how his striking has advanced, even if he's looking to take this fight to the mat as soon as possible.

Thanks again to Demian for answering my questions during a hectic day. He had to call me back because he was preparing for some UFC pre-fight media coverage, and was very apologetic about the scheduling issue.

lol at anyone who thinks kendall stands no chance...hes fighting demian maia, not anderson silva!

Grove can win this if he controls the distance and stays off the cage.

If maia shoots a dub he needs to be ready with the knees.

He CAN win this fight, not saying he will, but saying he has no chance is absurd.
