I'm massive Maia fan, but he doesn't have the stand up game yet to deal with Anderson, In a straight up BJJ match then Maia would take , but with MMA rules it's the Spider all the way - I don't want to see Maia KTFO.
Therefore I would give Okami the next shot, I don't mind if he gets knocked out
let maia fight nate the great, see how good he is
HW fedor, randy, AA, nog, brock, junior dos santos
LHW chuck, rampage, wandy, babalu, forest, shogun,
MW silva, bisping, franklin, hendo, maia
ww GSP, hughes, davis, alves,
I agree with a few of you that said Maia needs to fight a bigger contender then he has to earn a shot. No disrespect to Mcdonald, Quarry, and Sonnen, they aren't the upper tier of the MW division. I think Nate vs. Maia would should get a title shot, but if Silva does retire when he says he will, I doubt the winner will face him. He's already got the winner of Bisping/Hendo and Okami lined up, and you know Dana would line up GSP/Silva if he gets half a chance.
i got a strange feeling miller is going to upset okami... so hendo vs bisping would be next...
what the hell happened to anderson and the light heavy weight division, the only guy in the middleweight division id like to see him vs is marquardt other then him i dont think anyone else has a chance. it would be so good if he went to lightheavy just think chuck liddell, rashad evans, rampage forrest id love to see him fight any of those guys. he has defended his title so many times now, he really deserves a shot at the lightheavy title straight away, i mean look at bj penn he got his shot at holding 2 belts, why not anderson??? maybe he doesnt want to and content with the middleweights?
i'd give it to marquardt, i think hes ready.
i still dont see what all the hype is about Okami fighting Anderson.. he will be destroyed. And Okami didn't beat Silva... Silva knocked him the FUCK OUT! unfortunately up kicks were not allowed which sucks because it was a brutal KO!Former No. 1 contender Yushin Okami (23-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC) -- the last man to beat Silva
i do not think Bispin deserves a shot as he has not done anything to deserve a shot yet.
Same goes for Henderson. He only won a fight against Rich which i think Rich should had won and still Hendo already had his shot.
Marquart has had his shot also and he lost. Yeah everyone says they made a mistake and they are a different fighter after they lose the fight. Rich said the same thing before the second fight and look what happened to him. KO by knees AGAIN!
Maia has made everyone either tap or go to sleep. The man deserves a shot. Wether his stand up is great or not, he has earned it.

I think if Maia can avoid Anderson in a stand up war and just get a hold of him and take him down; this might be a bad fight for Anderson.
