Couldnt of been more wrong Laughing out loud how fast was that! excellent work by Maia, He should get the shot now. Feel gutted for Condit though, I hope he doesn't retire, still my favourite fighter to watch.
The Pettis Oliviera fight was great, Pettis looked good at 145.

Henderson v Pitbull in Bellator was disappointing, Maia's Jiu Jitsu is ridiculous, apparently he's taken something like 13 strikes in his last 4 fights Eek

Was a good night of fights. Nice seeing VanZant come back and get a win. Gutted for Condit but Maia is just class.

Am I the only one that finds Maia horrendously boring. He's great at bjj and all but fuck me I really don't enjoy his death by hugs style.

I admire him for it. He even said it in his interview. This is what he brings, he loves it and wants to do the best he can using the style he loves. Thought it was cool when Condit was so honest and said his strike from the bottom was pretty hard and it shook him a bit as he wasn't expecting that.

So yeah, you defo need to appreciate what he does more.

I fully appreciate the skill involved in what he does, I just personally don't find it fun to watch. He's not get a great deal of personality to begin with. He'd be the most boring champ in history if he ever got a belt. I find it hard to get behind him. You know he's just gonna pull guard at every possible opportunity then work his "magic". Yawn.

Stylez how can you be an mma fan and not appreciate what Maia does? How long have you been watching the UFC?

I appreciate it, it just doesn't excite me. Been watching MMA since getting Pride DVDs back in the day

Nate's superior cardio kept him in it and it was apparent Conor was never going to knock him out despite landing some of his biggest shots and dropping him repeatedly, shots which would have put pretty much anyone away at 155.

Best fight I've seen in 2016 since Lawler vs Condit

Two of the best you'll ever see. Full on wars.

Impressed with Conor's ability to not go for the KO but his cardio at the higher weight is shocking. Tired out almost entirely after the 3rd, spent so much time walking away from Diaz 4th and 5th.

Pretty impressive for a 240lb man.

And I expect the only reason Travis Browne hasn't been cut yet is because he's with Ronda.

Also love that Verdooom kicked that POS Tarvedyan at the end of the fight lol.
