Beast. I was very impressed with his takedowns vs a guy like Fitch as well. Phone Post

Agreed.

It's astounding how dominant he looks at 170. I had no idea he would handle Fitch like that. Phone Post

Heard he and the fight were awful to watch, so did not watch.  Seems he's getting more hype from the Bjj fanboys looking to consider him more of a WW title challenger than he is.  

He is just sticking to what he is good at and dominating people. I'm glad he isn't going the route of playing to the fans and pretending to be a boxer. Phone Post

I think he moved ahead with singular distinction as the best subgrappler in MMA last night.

He's looking like he first did when he came on the scene at MW. Dominating everyone with grappling again.

Very boring fight but he dictated the whole fight. It will be interesting to see who he fights next Phone Post

Btw, Fitch's wrestling is pretty overrated.  Basically Maia stuck to him like Velcro and held his back all fight?  Sounds awesome. 

What style fights do you prefer? Phone Post

His trip takedowns are so beautiful.

Should probably watch it before you rip on it. Was a great fight and I never thought I'd say I've really enjoyed four Fitch fights in a row. Phone Post

Fitch has been top 5 for years now. Up until he lost to Hendricks he was considered number 2. So the fact Maia just beat him easily does make him a challenger wouldn't you say? He's probably one impressive win away from a title shot Phone Post

He looks unstoppable at 170, it's really exciting. I like Fitch a lot so it sucked to see him lose but Maia earned it. I think Maia presents the most interesting threat to GSP. Phone Post

It was definitely an impressive victory, but people have to be out of their minds to think he could do that to GSP. GSP has some of the best takedown defense in the UFC. GSP would keep it standing and destroy Maia on the feet. Phone Post

Perhaps you should watch something before you critique it

Straight beast dominating Fitch like that. I predicted Maia to win but I didn't think the td's would be that easy. I was LMAO at Fitch getting a taste of his own medicine though, that was the best part for me.

WW Maia is a beast

His style would be a nightmare for Diaz, he'd push his shit in for 3 rounds. Phone Post
