Damian Maia vs. Jon Fitch UFC 156 Fight Highlights
Demian Maia dominated Jon Fitch en route to a unanimous decision victory at UFC 156. Maia is now a perfect 3-0 since dropping down to the UFC’s welterweight division.
Fitch was the favorite heading into the fight, but Maia stuck to him for 15 minutes like a monkey on a branch. Maia used his world class jiu jit su to suffocate Fitch, and the win vaults Maia into title contention. Conversely, Jon Fitch is in a rough spot. After winning 21 of 22 fights from 2003 to 2010, the 34-year old Fitch has just one win in his last four fights.
Jon Fitch is ultra talented, he’s been close to the title on multiple occasions, but he can’t seal the deal. Basically he’s the UFC’s version of Joe Thornton.
