UFC NEWS – Demian Maia: I can Submit Michael Bisping

“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, 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.

With just about a month left until the dust settles who ya got BJPENN.COM?

  1. Bisping better come to this fight in better shape than he did against Miller.If the fight stays standing Bisping can win a decision.If not,i think Bisping will be tapping.

  2. Jeff says:

    Maia’s gonna tap tap tap Bisping!

  3. Rob says:

    I don’t know what will happen….I think the same think I thought about the Miller fight. I thought there were only two possible outcomes, either Miller submits Bisping or Bisping wins a decision. We saw how that turned out.

    So we will try it again. Bisping wins decision if he doesn’t get submitted.

    War Bisping!

  4. Nick says:

    I hope he makes Bisping tap.

  5. Dan says:

    Bisping by TKO round 2

  6. repairman jack says:

    people really underestimate bisping apart from hendo’s ko of him he’s never been stopped or even well beaten he’s lost close decision to wand and rashad he will beat maia by ud using his superior striking maia will not be able to hold bisping down if he can get him there!

  7. Ricky says:

    I don’t like Bisping but I’d rather see him get destroyed by Anderson.

  8. Joe says:

    Bisping tko 3rd round

  9. A.James says:

    Bisping in no fool. This isn’t going to the ground.

  10. Dan says:

    I agree 100% – no-ones ever guessing he will win by ko/tko but he’s won 14 of 22 wins by TKO, that’s impressive.

  11. King says:

    I think Maia has the edge considering his stand has improved much. If Bisping doesn’t get extra sweaty during the fight, I say Maia win by sub.

  12. Maia subs the brit easily. Spitsbing has proven he cant beat a top 10 guy.

  13. Justen says:

    Maia will not be able to stand with him or take him down. I see Bisping getting a tko victory.

  14. Ninjaman says:

    Does everyone remember when Maia tapped out Sonnen!!

    Maia is the most improved mma fighter who has really learned some great stand up. He can survive on the ground and offer some good exchanges.

  15. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Maia has got the submission easily and he has heavy hands compared to Bisping. This one of the easier fights to call.

  16. josh says:

    Not a fan of the count but he is 100x better than maia. maia has great BJJ thats all.

  17. Stephen says:

    Bisping is the most underrated fighter in the UFC he has a professional record of 25-3. He has only ever lost to fighters that were or became world champions and has only been stopped once! Bisping will run through Maia!

    • mmaislandjunkie says:

      bisping is a little underrated cuz he is good off his back and has good striking but hes not a top 10 fighter. he also should have an extra loss on his record to matt hammil and a lot of his opponents in the ufc that he fought dont even fight for the ufc anymore i.e. denis kang, jason day, & charles mccarthy. if he beats maia ill give the man his dues but if history repeats itself which it normally does, bisping will lose AGAIN to another top contender then go right back to beating cans.

    • Stephens Mom says:

      yes bisping has only lost to future champs but he drops the ball in his major fights hence the 25 wins and no title shots, bisping blows this fight and maia 2nd rnd subs him

  18. J Mac says:

    I am not a fan of Bisping’s attitude but I would agree that he is a very underrated fighter. I think a lot of people have a hard time admitting he is good because he is such a prick. I hope that Maia wins but I have to give the edge to Bisping.

  19. magoo says:

    Maia for the W via tko/Sub. Bispings win streak ends here!

  20. John M says:

    Well for that matter Maia you can tap anyone you get your hands

  21. Dan says:

    This was supposed to be a reply under ‘repairman jack’ comment

  22. dana says:

    right im sick of the guys on use r all pricks if bisping was a yank use would love him, and to the people that say he isnt a top 10 guy is crazy tell me who is in the top 10 and i will correct u i have bisping 6th in the division with mia in 5th, and dont even say brian stann he is so over rated sonnen showed that and jorge santiago hasnt won i fight since he came into the ufc and i can remeber all u guys were saying hes 5th in the divison i new he wasnt even top ten, i have been following this sport for years i no more than most just give bisping a breake yes he can be a prick because he speaks his mind not like half the other guys in the ufc licking danas ass like randy couture and liddle done for years mia is tuf but bisping has this fight hes bigger faster stronger better striking better takedown defence but i would give mia the edge on the takedown and bjj

    • Takedowns and BJJ is all he needs against him. Bisping is 0-3 against good competition.Soon to be 0-4.

    • jdub says:

      Your crazy!!! Under rated? are you kidding me, Bis has pillows for hands and the people he beat DONT EVEN FIGHT IN THE UFC ANYMORE for the most part you tard. He has no class; if he spent half his time trianing instead of running his mouth maybe he would be good. He cant knock anyone out. TKO usually comes from people getting tired and covering up, hes never really hurt anyone…..I hope he gets past DM then you bislovers will see that punk needs to go to strike force where he can play pillow fights with the rest of the washed up brits….know MMA before you speak

  23. mmaislandjunkie says:

    out of curiosity, wtf is up with this pic? its like a calendar pose.

  24. Me says:

    i think Maia will win without too much trouble. havent ever been a bisping fan, i dont think he can handle the elite. but heres his chance to become one of the elite, by beating one.
