UFC 156: Demian Maia out-Fitches Jon Fitch
The Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia bout at UFC 156 was billed as submission defense specialist vs. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu submission specialist.
What we got Saturday night in Las Vegas was . . . exactly that.
Maia took down Fitch with ease in each round, controlling his body with back mounts, body triangles and submission attempts. At times, Maia looked like a human backpack.
