    Much respect to Maia. He is very deserving of a title shot. But Woodley will beat him, which is fine since I want Woodley to remain champion for a long time.

    Maia is very entertaining imo. The guy just dominates. He doesn't just sit on top like wrestlers. He actually goes for the submission

    i doubt GSP wants romero if he beats bisping, so he might fight woodly? that means maia is going to hav to wait longer for title shot.

    Maia doesn't bring that sexy flair and swagger that the sport seems to be drifting towards. He's a quiet humble athlete with talent to burn. The ufc doesn't want to see him as champion, because they're more concerned with ppv sales. I feel bad that he keeps getting jerked around by the scoundrels, but have no doubt that he will rule 170 until he retires. This is a scary thought for the ufc brass, which is why they're trying one more desperate, but clever move to try and pick him off and send him reeling to the end of the line. Message to Masvidal... Dude, sometimes its better to let sleeping dogs lie.

    Much respect to Maia as a fighter, but he really shouldn't talk about selling anything. He owns the record for the lowest rated FOX card ever when he headlined with Carlos Condit last August. Stop it.

    Demian seems like a simple, humble man, which I really respect. What a real martial artist is traditionally supposed to be. I agree with Masvidal though that the UFC really is just using him to get rid of Maia.

    Maia is super talented. the thing is he doesn't have a personality and his style is not particularly interesting to the average viewer. this guy can't sell any ppvs

    Ariel forgets hes a hardcore fan. Casuals dont want to see maias fights. Its boring to them. Also gracie was subing ppl 2x his size. Maia doesn't bring that novelty.

      Ricky VanDusen he could bring that novelty he Is a true jujitsu master take on all challengers however your are ignoring the fact that mma has evolved a lot since the gracie era. every weight class has well rounded top 5 ranked fighters.

    There's a high probability Maia won't take much damage in his upcoming fight and be fresh to welcome Woodley.Post fight interview statement to Dana white making it clear he's next for the tittle can help .

    I'm tuning in to see Damian fight. The jiu jitsu community is huge nowadays. They should market Damian to the Jiu Jitsu community and the word will spread to the general market.

    • Ricky VanDusen

      Lol shouldnt the jitsu community already know? Its not like he is new or like they are hiding him. Is this community 500 k strong ? Have they just not been paying attention? Hes boring to the casuals no personality. Maia doesn't sell ppvs

      TollFree999 2 месяца назад

      Wait, didn't we hear Wonderpointer would 'beat Woodley easy' too?

      Woodley actually has a wrestling pedigree, we all saw what happened when he had top position on Wonderpointer. He could actually stand a chance against Maia in grappling.....Wonderpointer on the other hand.

    damn i just got the revelation , just wait till tyroon lost his belt against maia and have him and wonderboy make 1 or two fight before meet again no belt on the table but the one who win get a shot a the belt this is the only scenario where i can see them make a good fight , if not i would better die the relost 25 five minutes f my life watching a boring match like that .

    Hope Damian gets a title shot soon. Him vs Woodley is a fun match up (queue race card comments in 3,2,1....)
