If Maia is a threat how isn't Askren a threat? Maia isn't about to submit GSP but he could possibly take him down and hold him down for 5 rounds. Wouldn't Askren do the same thing, with a much better wrestling pedigree then Maia.
I am not saying Askren would beat GSP, he probably wouldn't. But anyone that thinks Maia is a threat needs to say Askren is a threat.
