I think most guys with a decent grappling background or at least takedown defense will just take their chances standing with Vinny. Exact same thing that happens to Maia when he fights guys that don't want to go to the ground.
That's why I was thinking it be a closer fight though it'll be more of a matter of who has the better stand up and neither has really excelled there as of yet.
