i don't know anything about him, but the fact that 4 out of his 5 wins were in the first round is pretty damn impressive.

Demian Maia is one of the greatest grapplers on the planet.

I have no comment about this fighter's skill because I haven't really looked into it, but I just want to say that no matter who this guy fights, Joe Rogan will always pick him to win, so don't let Rogan spoil your bets, however much of an expert he is, he's a bit grappling obsessed.



I thought I was the only one that noticed that.
