he needs to focus on striking to setup takedowns to get it to the ground. Wand ate a ton of shots in his career, he just has some tremendous recuperative powers, its a long shot to think Maia will possess that same trait.
Maia wont imitate Silva imo. Wand knows how to strike but lets his emotion make him reckless in fights. Maia is smarter and with the strikes he learns from Wanderlei he can use his own intelligence to make it work for him. If you look at the Sonnen fight, his striking looks effective but he doesnt make it a shootout, he did exactly as you sed and used it to close the distance to initiate grappling. He caught Sonnen, a high caliber wrestler, with a sick judo toss and transitioned right into a triangle.

I'm not saying its a lock that he will beat Nate but i think its highly possible. although an impressive win, Gouvia was gassed by round 3 making the KO easier.

Regardless of who wins i think its a great fight in the making and can wait for the event

I gotta go with Maia on this one. He is undefeated not because he is lucky, but because he has incredible skill. I say Maia by submission (choke)

yeah I'd like to see Maia win also.

plus Marquardt already had his shot vs Silva.
