Not sure why people keep talking as if Maia is already in the upper echelon of fighters at this point in the game. He's fantastic, don't get me wrong, but I don't think he is THAT far ahead of Quarry in terms of skills.
I'll be the lone dissenter and say Quarry wins by TKO.
Well Quarry did get ktfo by Rich, but then he was injured for a long time.
So the way your making it sound is that he beat a bunch of fighters since then. When he has only fought 2 times since then.
Once against Sell who he looked like shit against, and then Starnes who ran.
What skills has Nate shown. That he has power. From what i have seen thats really all he has showed. He striking is average imo at best.
I don't hate Nate or anything.
Not to mention Nate is 36, an won't be getting much better. Maia is much younger an getting better all the time.
This is imo grappler vs striker.
Maia could come out an strike with Nate, because as i said he is improving all the time. Also it helps when he trains all the time with Wandy. Or Maia can sub him.
Only thing Nate can do is ko or tko him.
I take Maia by sub, round 2.
