Is Maia in danger of being cut?

He hasn't had much luck evolving into a complete mixed martial artist. He has crazy submission skills but his last 5 fights have been really inconsistent.

Should he be worried? Phone Post

No he has had two losses in 5 fights he is pretty hight caliber. If they have put him against chael he would have won easily. Phone Post

I would be if I were him, maybe he needs more time Phone Post

And i still had him beating munoz that was a close fight Phone Post

HAve you seen some of the MWs on the UFC roster? Maia isnt going anywhere

He should fight mayhem. Loser gets cut. Phone Post

He needs to play to his strengths more instead of trying to be a ko artist.

Maia vs mayhem sounds great Phone Post

Ya he should be doing pulling guard when he cant get the takedown

End thread, please. Move on to the new one. Phone Post

Um, wat.
Maia has ONLY lost to guys in the top 10 (Munoz, Marquardt, Silva, Weidman). The Munoz loss could have gone either way(I had Maia barely edging it out), Silva is the #1 fighter in the sport at the moment, Weidman is one of the brightest prospects, and the Marquardt fight is the only time he's ever been destroyed.

Jose Aldo Junior Dos Santos - Um, wat.

Ok, now name all the top 10 guys he has beaten. Phone Post

UFC should cut him.

His best days are behind him.

He's not the same guy who entered the UFC with great submission skills.

His wrestling is terrible. His striking is worse than terrible.

Someone convinced him that he needed to spend all his time working his striking and it has done nothing for him. You know it's bad when Rogan says it looks like two drunks outside a bar.

He used to be one of my favorite fighters but not I don't even recognize him. His last five fights have been like that. He's not evolving, he's devolving.

Well ya but neither Munoz or Weidman were top 10 going into their fights.

Maybe if he fought for mfc. Phone Post

 he looked like crap in that fight.

If he loses another fight like that I wouldn't doubt it. Phone Post

Irule - They should trade him to StrikeForce for Jacare.

I'll take that Phone Post

Maia vs Jacare in SF Phone Post

I'm down to trade for Jacare as well Phone Post
