    Umm not too sure what you're trying to say but Stephan isn't fighting Goran Reljic but fighting Pokrajac instead.

    Maia by 2nd round sub.

    I don't see any reason that this fight will go any different than Almeida vs Grove except for the fact that Maia can actually get the sub.

    Its not the wrestling pedigree that will matter. When your going for a TD,your trying to grab their leg/legs and pull them out,and take them down. The problem with Grove,and really tall fighters,is when they sprawl their legs are so long,it makes it even harder to pull that leg in, let alone both. Not to mention,Grove can do the 1 foot hop very well.

    If you wrestled,you know what I am talking about. Tall, lanky guys are harder to takedown, they have long "levers" so they get more leverage.

    I see what you are saying, yes Grove is tall.

    If you remeber correctly though, Maia got a great TD on Chael (that turn into a mounted triangle very fast). Maia has better TDs than you think he does.

    Grove takes this easy, just uses his crazy long arms to Maia at bay,and theirs little to no chance Maia can get a TD, this is Kendall's fight to lose. And I hope Bonnar gets another TKO.
