“(The fight would be) pretty tough. Of course, he’s tough. He’s experienced, he’s not young. He has a lot of experience. What he did to Rory (MacDonald at UFC 189)? Rory’s great. I fought him, I know he’s great. And he was winning the fight and Robbie was able to pull the win in the last round. Robbie is a guy with big heart, he’s hard to take down, heavy hands, he deserves to be a champion. I wish I can fight him one day for the title.”
UFC welterweight and winner this past weekend at UFC 190, Demian Maia, recently told MMAJunkie that if he fought champion Robbie Lawler and got him to the ground then he would defiantly be able to win.
Would you like to see Maia go up against Lawler in the future?
