sooo looking forward to fitch vs maia, grappling fans wet dream !!

seems to me everyone has forgotten how good maia is, no one is even talking about him being a threat at 170.


not when the division is top heavy with great wrestlers who will keep the fight standing



i didn't really want to get into this, but maia is phenomenal against high level wrestlers. Chael sub rnd 1, plus an awesome judo throw....story sub rnd 1.




good discussion so far.

the golden question: Can and will Fitch keep the fight on the feet, or will he find himself tied up in Maias web?

While Maias standup has been improving its still just okay. Hes very predictable. He likes his inside leg kick and uncorks and looping left hook pretty often that is easy to see coming. He doesnt throw many uppercuts or straight punches nor does he throw his hips into his punches. The only real time i was impressed with his standup was the head kick he landed on Munoz. That was crazy. Fitch on the other hand while lacking power is more fluid on the feet. He stays light and has a complete arsenal in his boxing. If you dont believe me watch the Pierce fight again. While he got tagged in the 3rd round he was owning the standup other than that. He has a good straight right, his jab and body work are lacking but he uses his hooks and uppercuts very well..... fuck im excited for this fight. Im a huge Fitch fan so hoping he walks away with a UD here.
