Undefeated UFC middleweight Demian Maia has made it clear his gameplan going into Saturday's UFC 102 fight against Nate Marquardt is to take his opponent down and submit him. And although Marquardt is comfortable on the ground, it's on his feet where he holds a significant advantage.

Still, if you ask Maia, he does not consider this fight a classic striker vs. grappler matchup.

This fight is probably the one I'm looking forward to most this weekend...I hope Maia comes out strong and shows that he is multi-dimensional...though I can see Nate surviving and grinding out the decision.
