"Stop me if you've heard this one. Heavyweight gets poked in the eye, ref fails to see it, heavyweight's opponent sneaks in a quick uppercut, heavyweight gets a moment to collect self, captures his opponent's arm into a double wrist lock, sweeps, works to mount and secures the finish via rear naked choke."
"There are others with great jiu-jitsu, but perhaps no one who makes it look easier. And so tonight, we saw Maia give the UFC slight pause with their intention to put Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson as the first offering for newly crowned welterweight champ, Tyrone Woodley.
And like the true martial artist and respectful guy he is, Maia told Brian Stann in his post-fight interview that he'd patiently wait his turn."
