Not that Batista though. Naturally Maia is seeking out his fellow Brazilians. "It may hinder or may help. Truth is that it’s something different. Só I’m training with taller people and taking the opportunity to adapt to it. But I don’t feel it’ll be harder or easier, just different. Ednaldo Lula, who fights in the WFE promotion, is helping me. He is over two meters tall. But I also called on (Aldo) Batista, Antonio Peinado, who just won the Brazilian No-Gi Nationals. He’s going to help me. He’s not quite as tall as Kendall, but he’s really tall and long-limbed. I also have some tall students who are helping me out."

i'm fairly confident that maia goes right through grove, with very little difficulty actually.

There is no need to make this the headline, and make it seem like wwe batista.

Yeah unless it was a choke slam or something. Maia by 1st RND submission unless he trys to stand with Grove for a little bit to test his standup. In that case Maia 2nd RND sub.
