I have to agree with this one. Just one thing I wonder about, will Jacare be so loose with his punching against Maia? Jacare is good yes, but he wasn't very concerned about going to the ground IMO so that allowed him to be more free striking. Against Maia he should be rather concerned about going to the ground with him. Maybe Maia is not better on the ground but I certainly think he would hold his own and maybe could even pull something off. Also consider that Maia trains with Wandy, that's gotta be helping his stand up (though maybe not striking defense).
Anyway I agree and think Jacare would win but by decision.

HOSS-Bork, you should spend more time brushing up on your MMA history, and less time complementing guys on how young their penises taste.
