    Not likely. GSP had the best TDD at WW and has way better striking than Maia. How would this not be similar to him fighting Shields? I agree Maia is very well positioned at WW where he can feast on all the wrestlers but I'm not convinced he'd be able to control GSP who's the best at WW at controlling people and is difficult to take down let alone sub. If someone can do it, then I would expect it to be Maia.

    I was kidding because he Fitched Fitch.

    GSP is fading. He looked quite gassed in the Diaz fight. We know he ain't finishing Maia in the first few rounds, and I think Demian would be able to take him down in the championship rounds.

    Yeah GSP has great top control, but I'm not confident he can keep a rejuvenated Maia from taking an arm or his neck if Demian should get a takedown late in the fight.

    GSP would beat him, but besides that

    I can see Hendricks neutralizing the wrestling and winning it

    And I think Rory would beat him as well

    Two already got worked over by gsp and the other is a team mate

    Rory will be the next big thing but only time will tell when he starts to reign aka if big rig can land that power bomb of a strike

    Gsp beats maia because gsp can stop maia from bullying him around

    Not in the later rounds when GSP eventually gasses.

    Ellen is beating Rory so don't hold your breath on that reign.

    Maia can handle anyone at WW except maybe Hendricks. That left scares me.

    MAIA is the future welterweight champ

  • zaksamezaksame Posts: 4,342Free
    I would say Carlos because he has very good bjj and is not afraid on the ground or standing and is definitely better than Maia standing.
    The problem is Damian is pretty big and has that long reach.He struggled versus Silva because he is a tad slow and Silva just ran all fight.At WW there is little running almost all fighters here engage.However the one guy who can point point is Carlos if that is his only choice.That is why i like Carlos,he has a lot of options where as others guy have very few versus Maia.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.
