White On Maia: I’d Like To See Him Take More Risks

Dana White has said this about Alistair Overeem, and he feels the same way about welterweight Demian Maia: Maia has to take more risks inside the octagon.

“Maia did what he does. He has unbelievable jiu-jitsu. It wasn’t the most exciting fight you’ll ever see. My only disappointment with Demian was he didn’t take enough risks. I’d like to see him take more risks.”

It was not a surprise to hear Dana White say this. Fans in attendance and viewers from around the world were begging for Maia to take action and try harder to finish the fight. Do you think Maia will ever be that kind of fighter, or is he content with grappling his way to victory?
