MMA Fighting spoke to Maynard about his performance, finally getting a title shot and why he feels like he is ready to make a serious run as champion.
It's fair enough that Maynard uses his best tools to win. Maynard is in a no win situation. If he abandons his style, people would complain he abandoned his base (like Kos). If he doesn't people complain he's boring.
At the end of the day, he has stuck with what he does best. It's got him a title shot and he could well win the belt too.
