oh !!
I think Herman is in big trouble .

I really think Maia will be a top 3 in the UFC MW 1 days . well , not in 2008 but maybe in 2009 considering that the MW division is not stacked, after Silva and Hendo, the 3th to 10th place are a possibility for a lot of guys.

As long as Demian don't have a weak chin, he should have this fight won. His BJJ is awesome. He can be the next big thing. He just needs to show he can handle his own on the feet. This is the perfect test for him!

while i like herman and i think he is underrated, this could be a tough matchup for him because ed's big weakness is his sub defense. maia has a lot to prove in this fight, he was impressive against an inferior opponent and herman is a tough guy. i think ed will give him a beating but he will get caught in a sub.

Maia is the man. R1 sub anyway he wants.

Maia should win. Herman has a "punches chance" like the old cliche goes, but Maia is so much better than Herman on the ground.

with all, if Doerksen nearly subbed Herman then Demian will definately tap him! Unless Ed has improved his striking and keeps its standing and Maia has a weak chin i see that as a fairly obvious 1st round sub

Yea, this should be an easy victory for Maia. Key word is SHOULD, I am going to predict that he puts away Ed in the first. The method will be TKO....j/k, of course by SUB.

Maia isn't just a veteran, he's an ADCC champion.

Interesting fight. Maia by submission.

Maia is my boy. He's a good kid and a great fighter. He should dominate Herman in this fight, and then move on to bigger and better things (Evan Tanner?)
