Maia could give GSP some problems...
I still think GSP is too good on top to get subbed, but Maia would put him in a ton of danger. Far beyond what even guys like Penn, Condit, Shields and Diaz could do. But he would probably keep it standing and jab him to death...
it would look something between kos2 and sheilds...
Odd how Fitch was consitered by many to be GSP's biggest or best win... and Maia was a joke contender for Anderson. Look how dominate Maia was against Fitch... Not ragging on GSP... He has a lot of other great wins, it more of exposes Fitch... Who for years has been overrated imo, he was not the #2 WW like many said he was, even considering his record... Give him a tougher matchup he would lose.
Fitch has not been overrated for years and 2 losses does not eliminate the tear that he had been on.
Oh, Fitch must be terrible just because he lost to a bigger, stronger Maia.
You seem to think that it is impossible for Maia to have improved his game before dropping weight. Or that it could have been a bad night for Fitch.
But, Fitch is a scrub just because you say so.
And Fitch has been overrated for years? Really? Because he's lost some fights now? Before his draw against BJ Penn, who would you have ranked higher than Fitch (besides GSP)?
You guys really need to understand "overrated"
I often call high ranked fighters "overrated" because they ranked too high... That doesnt mean Im calling them complete shit...
Fitch was considered to be the #2 WW for years... "the guy better than everyone besides GSP"... Never agreed with that... he was always a top5 WW, but put him against another legit wrestler, then you got a problem..
I wish Hendricks wouldnt have KO'd him so fast, so we could have seen Fitch try and get him down... I picked Jon by TKO, but didnt think he'd catch Fitch that soon...
just wait tell Fitch Draws Ellenburger, Kos(dont train together anymore), Askren, etc...
Also dont confuse me saying that he didnt deserve the "#2 Ranking" because he did... I just didnt think he was the "#2 WW"... Hell I think if BJ faced him back then before the GSP rematch, he would have beaten him as well. Kos has always been a better wrestler than Fitch, its a shame they were teammates.
Being undefeated except to the #1 guy doesn't mean he was overrated.
That's what I'm saying.
After the subsequent losses... Diaz, Hendricks and Condit have floated above him.
If anyone in the WW division has been overrated, I'd say it's Nick Diaz.
