"My dream is to take the fight down in the first minute and submit Fitch,” Maia said. “That's my dream and I hope it comes true."

If that happens, which would be unexpected even in light of his immense grappling ability, Maia would solidify his status as a top-five welterweight, and would appear a win (or two at the most) away from locking up a shot at the welterweight belt.

"The last time I didn't realize how hard it was to get there, and how big it was," Maia said. "If I get another chance [at fighting for a UFC belt], I understand what it means to be there.

"First, I need to win this fight."

Maia is a different fighter altogether at 170. I don't necessarily expect a first round submission but I expect that Maia will be fighting GSP before the end of the year.

Fitch is a tough guy, Maia might not get a chance to get a submission, is his stand up good enough to keep up?

Fitch by KTFO.

I will make you a screen name bet that that will 100% not happen. Matter of fact if Fitch Wins via KO I will buy your blue name and change my name to any name that you pick. Fitch might grind out a win. But he will not Knock Maia TFO.

I don't like to bet and I already got a blue name.

I think he is better grappler than Fitch, I think Maia might also have the better stand up, Fitch has his wrestling, but I don't think he will clinch with Maia and who knows what happens when it gets to the ground. Honestly I think Maia was undersized as a middleweight and was still very successful. Now that he is fighting guys his size he will be better able to showcase his skills. So far he has looked unstoppable lately. Phone Post

I estimate this fight has an 70% chance of going to a decision. Rooting hard for Maia to win this, he'd be a hell of a challenge for GSP down the road... Georges would probably Koscheck him for 5 rounds, but I still wanna see it. GSP ain't fighting Silva in 2013.
