Demian Maia vs. Jon Fitch at UFC 156.

That is going to be a really good fight. A win in this fight would probably make Maia the next contender for the title after the winner of Kampmann vs. Hendricks. I'm really pulling for Maia here.

Sergei Kharitonov has said he wants to fight in the Glory Heavyweight Tournament and in a MMA fight at the Glory/DREAM NYE event. He's already a fighter in the tournament, now it's just a matter of them giving a MMA fight on the same night. I don't think Kharitonov will get past the first round of the tournament, but if he did make it to the finals, he could be fighting 4 times in one night with 3 kickboxing fights and 1 MMA fight.

I think they pushed each other, and got kicked out of the bar. We were with a group of people. My wife and all her friends were there.

After we got kicked out, we went to another bar. When we got there, this same guy ended up there and was hitting on my wife and calling her all kinds of names right in front of me, all because she told him she was married. I told him, 'Hey man, you need to get out of here now.' As soon as I saw that he ended up in the same place we did, again, I knew there was going to be trouble. I told him that, and he walked away.

About ten minutes later, I go to the bathroom, and as I'm peeing, the guy sucker punches me. He like runs up and punches me in my face. This happened mid-pee. I was unzipped and everything. I finished up, zipped up, and took another punch in the process. After I zipped up, well, let's just say I beat him up. I pushed him up against the bathroom stall, I hit him with a couple right hands, I kneed him and pretty much stomped his ass.

As I'm punching him in the face, the guy says, 'I'm done.' I'm like, 'What about when I was pissing? Where did these rules come in? What about the rules that you don't f*cking punch somebody when they're at the urinal peeing?' He's like 'I'm done! I'm done!' like that was going to stop me from giving him one more. Now he has rules? No way. I didn't hurt him permanently or anything, I just taught him a lesson about sucker punching people at a urinal. Hopefully that's my last street fight. It was definitely an awkward situation.

Tom Lawlor doing a Shockmaster impersonation at the UFC 154 weigh ins. He totally killed it once again. He has one of the best personalities in the UFC.

Maia dropped the K-1 and is back to ADCC and BJJ Mundials so I wouldn't be surprised if he subbed Fitch.

I would be.Fitch has never been submitted and has great wrestling, sure silva took his back but if i remember correctly its only because he gave it to him.

I think there will be alot more stand up in this fight then ground work.

Fitch was subbed once years ago. He has amazing sub. defense though, but Maia's BJJ is great. Fitch has never fought anyone with BJJ as good as Maia.

Maia is a big welterweight with some great judo and BJJ skills, so I wouldn't be surprised if he took Fitch down. Maia was able to throw Chael down at middleweight and Chael has some of the best wrestling in MMA so I don't think it's all that impossible for him to take Fitch down.

He got subbed 10 years ago in his first mma fight.I'm not saying it wont happen but it would be surprising.

Fitch is a better Mma wrestler than chael. I'll be absolutely shocked if Maia takes him down

I can't agree with this. The way Chael tossed other great wrestlers like Okami and Dan Miller and the way he tossed Marquardt in the cage pretty much proves Chael maybe the best wrestler in MMA.

Chael is a great offensive wrestler. That's it. He has average at best defensive wrestling. Taking him down isn't all that impressive
