danggook - Worst post ever. Suckershoot? What fight were you watching. Phone Post
He's right though. I said the same thing when I watched it.

P.S. Stop with the touching of gloves already! Save it for after the fight. Phone Post

Protect yourself at ALL times. That means from bell to bell you have to protect yourself.

I have no problem with that. See Struve/Morecraft for an actual cheapshot. This was touch then shoot, not touch while shooting. Fitch grabbing the fence was actually legitimately a foul.

Definitely disagree with OP.  Fitch had time to pull the hand back and attempted to defend the takedown.

I was more disappointed with how many times Fitch grabbed the fence.

Indeed, that's something Fitch never does Phone Post

Normally he isn't put in that type of position

I was proud of Maia for being aggressive and not pretending to be a kickboxer. Fuck glove touching, except before the fight.

He owned Fitch. Excuses or not. It was nice to see Fitch, 'Fitched'.

And I like Fitch.

MTH -  I agree with folks suggesting that Maia wasn't really going to globe touch at all. He was thinking "shoot, shoot, shoot" and then saw Fitch's glove extended for the touch. So, touch and shoot.

I was a bit surprised by how quick the shot came and Fitch may have been too, but lets be honest: It wasn't close in the grappling department. I think Fitch expected Maia would go back to striking for this fight in light of Fitch's sub defense. Instead, Maia went straight to Fitch's strength, basically gambling that he's just that awesome. And apparently he is.

I didn't see the shoot as unsportsmanlike, and I came away very impressed by Maia. I'm thrilled he's gone back to grappling. I really missed that early MW Maia that use to turn everybody inside out. Phone Post

Gambling that he is that awesome? I think it was apparant before the fight that Maia is many levels beyond fitch in grappling technique, and Maia is obviously going to know that more than any of us.

Fitch was standing there totally asking for it(very slow)... They touched gloves and the fight was on well and truly.

Are you guys kidding yea he shot shortly after the glove touch Fitch even backed up if you guys look. So if Fitch had the chance to back up Maia didn't shoot immediately. OP makes it sound like he did a Gumburyan vs Cox kind of glove touch.

Lol--fair enough.

But I honestly didn't expect THAT much dominance over Fitch on the mat. I mean the guy's name has become a verb--you get "Fitch'd." He's a heck of a grappler.

I pictured Maia slowly overcoming Fitch in the grappling department, not just taking his back like he's a newb over and over and over. Phone Post

OP gets the rarest of the rare JoeCanada vote up.

Huge fan of both men, but if Maia were a card player, that would be angling.
