The below fighters have all beaten Damian Maia, and they all have one thing in common, their TDD average is unusually high. Their combined average is 66%. The adjusted rate is 71% without Shields.
Rory Mcdonald - 89% TDD (made Damain look like a fool, stuffed 12 TD's)
Jake Shields - 39% (he is just better at bjj, he honestly shouldn't even count)
Chris Weidman - 71% (beat him easily on 1 weeks notice)
Mark Munoz - 58% (destroyed him)
Anderson Silva - 69% (he blocked all 13 takedown attempts)
Nate Marquhardt - 72% (annihilated him)
All the below fighters who have lost to Damian Maia have a lower TDD average, none above the 71% threshold and only one above the 66% threshold.
Carlos Condit - 39% TDD (lol are you serious bro?)
Matt Brown - 63% (ok not bad but Matt is a can and as usual Maia gassed in the 3rd rd)
Gunnar Nelson 70% (not bad but Gunnar isn't a sprawl and brawler, hes a bjj guy)
Neil magny - 59% (can)
Ryan Laflare - 65% (can)
Jon Fitch - 56% (can)
Kendall Grove 57% (can)
Jorge Masvidal - 80% TDD (Jorge is well above the TDD threshold needed to beat Maia)
Jorge is going to stuff all the TD attempts, then rain down deadly hands until old man Maia is out COLD. Round 2/3 KO after Maia gasses from repeatedly lunging his body at Gamebreds crotch.
