Top 5 Wins of Demian Maia’s Career

There are a significant number of MMA fans who feel UFC welterweight Demian Maia (18-4) could secure a shot at the title currently around Georges St-Pierre’s waist if he’s able to get by Jake Shields (28-6-1) next week. The two talented grapplers are set to headline UFC Fight Night 29, giving the Brazilian crowd a bout sure to feature some slick exchanges on the ground given both competitors’ familiarity with BJJ. Though no outcome is guaranteed in the Octagon, Maia has been in some major match-ups before and risen to the occasion more often than not. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    I would love to see Maia get a shot at GSP if he gets by Jake, which i am still up in the air about. I really see this as a 50/50 type fight with both guys being known to tire late and neither really having ko power but both being great grapplers. I guess I would favor Maia slightly but it is close
