This is a joke...

Maia is a guy who people avoid going to the ground with, because they will be finished. Shields is a good wrestler with a Gracie Blackbelt. Yes, Shields has great Jiu Jitsu, but he isn't world champ level, like Maia.

 

Demian Maia is the best BJJ artist in all of MMA.

Shields is the best all around grappler, but his submissions and submission defense is not good enough to beat Demian. Shields was practically choked out by Mayhem...

Disagree, I have it like this:

 

1) Roger Gracie

2) Demian Maia

3) Werdum

4) Jacare

5) Alexandre Ribeiro

6) Rani Yahia

Maia's BJJ is overrated. He spent 15 minutes on the ground with Miranda and Grove and never even came close to getting a submission. He controls guys well, but his ability to submit guys is pretty overrated.

 

The only fighter he's ever subbed in the UFC who has decent BJJ skills is MacDonald, and it's not like he'd ever been subbed before.
