“He has a good submission defense but it doesn’t matter. I’ve fought guys before that have never been submitted before many times and I’ve submitted them. I know I have the chance to submit him.”
In a recent interview with mmafighting.com, top UFC middleweight fighter Demian Maia tells the guys that he believes he can submit Michael Bisping in their matchup next month scheduled for UFC on FOX 2.
Demian Maia is one of the world’s very best submission grapplers and while he burst onto the UFC scene submitting his first five opponents he has yet to stop a guy with his grappling prowess since those initial five wins.
The UFC on FOX 2 card features a host of intriguing matchups, however in the Bisping vs. Maia bout it’s Michael Bisping who has much to gain. I doubt the world will rush to see Anderson Silva vs. Demian Maia II anytime soon, but Michael Bisping is the loud mouthed, would be challenger who may pique the interest of many.
OF course, if Maia’s prediction comes to fruition; the count will be forced to the back of the line.
