Fabio Maldonado defeated Joey Beltran at Ulimate Fight Night 29, and although he's not a big name yet, he wants a big name fight next:

"Of course I'm serious. I would love to fight Chael Sonnen. I would like to fight James Te Huna. James Te Huna is a great striker and Chael, a lot of people think he would kill my game and that he would be able to tie me up, but I am very well-trained. I count on my friend (Demian Maia ) and all of his people and I can turn it around. It's hard for you to see my ju-jitsu. I know I'm injured, but I can turn it around. If it's James Te Huna, I can do well, also. I think he's (Sonnen) a good fighter and I think he is good for the sport, I'm his fan. He is good for the sport because he says a lot of truth. Of course, sometimes he crosses the line and some things I don't agree with him, but I think he is very good for the sport. I think a fighter can't be afraid to say things. You might not agree with what I'm saying, but, this is me, this is what it is going to be like."

He should bring a camera man to stage a fake fight between himself and Chael. When the people see it they'll be super hyped to see it and just sort of pretend they don't know it wouldn't be competitive at all. Phone Post

he's fun to watch, but his body work that equals close decisions isn't going to get him either of those guys.

Chael would wreck him, it is a nightmare match up for him. I would love to see him fight Te Huna though!

Immaculata - He barely won a round against a gift match up in Beltran.
Beltran just came to wall and stall.

They should have deducted points for that shit anyway so I have no beef with the decision. Phone Post 3.0

Didn't they separate and Maldon put his back up against the cage and invite Beltran back? He was gassed in just a couple minutes, he didn't want to be anywhere else. Phone Post

Beltran's game plan worked. The only time when Maldanado was effective was LATE in the 2nd round.

1 minute might be a bit rude.

I enjoy Maldonado. I do wish Joey would have come to bang (he knows thats why he was there... hell, he probably agreed to bang during contact talks)...nothing against Beltran.

...that said, Chael would have zero problem subbing Maldonado in the first round. Phone Post

Rambo John J -

Why would he want a TRT grappler?

Chael loses to many MWs and LHWs on the feet, Yes.

But UFC rules are tailor made for grapplers, so Sonnen is not a very good matchup for Fabio.

Take the TRT out ole Chael, and he loses to Fabio in the 2nd round.

Fabs needs to call out a banger.

How do we live John?

What makes you think the rules are tailor made for grapplers?


Personally I would say the Ufc was tailored towards striking
with the gloves suiting strikers, allowing elbows on the ground no 10minute first round... maybe I should just go back to watching pride haha.

IF your a grappler in ufc you better be exciting or have a tv friendly personality otherwise your gana get cut after 2 loses.

Chael vs Rashad

Then
Chael vs Wand
Maldonado vs Te Huna

If Maldonado wins, then have them fight.
If Maldonado keeps calling Chael out, Chael can make it work as Maldonado is Brazilian and he will cut some promo saying he will keep beating up Brazilians until Anderson gives him another shot.

Maldonado has never really demonstrated even average takedown defense. Chael would beat him easily.
