As the old mixed-martial-arts saying goes, "No one stays unbeaten forever."

But of course, no one likes to get beaten the way top UFC middleweight Demian Maia (11-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) was in his UFC 102 contest with Nate Marquardt.

Maia doesn't believe in that other old saying – "That loss was the best thing that could have happened," he said – but he does believe the lessons learned in that 21-second disaster will have him more than ready for Dan Miller at Saturday night's UFC 109 event.

i can't believe this wasn't on the main card until someone got an injury... (it started out on the spike portion when it was announced)

always love to watch him fight and grapple

Dan Miller, please keep the fight upright for as long as possbile...and when the fight does hit the mat please stay saavy and get up quickly.
I think you can win me some money, Mr. Miller, but only if you don't let Maia use his superpowers on you....
