Nice, could be the main event? I wouldn't complain, with Silva/Kim and Silva/Hamill already rumored for this event too, it looks like it could be good.

I think Maia takes this. His Jitz is better and his standup is as well.

I think Maia is better literally everywhere.

This is an amazing fight. I've wanted this one to happen for a long time. Hopefully it is the technical grappling clinic I've been envisaging and not the sloppy standup gasfest I know it can turn into.

The reinvention of Maia at WW so far has been a success.

How soon, before either gets injured and this great fight is scrapped?

Seems to be.common trend of late.....

This is one of the best cards I've ever seen

Maia/Shields
Thiago/Hamill
Silva/Stungun
Dillishaw/Assuncao
Rony Jason/Stephens

And still potentially missing a main event....

I just hope they don't turn this into a K1 striking match.

Totally agree. I want a gappling expo.

I could see shields trying to jab and run though. But I don't think Maia will let him.
