Last night, former UFC title challenger Demian Maia looked to be half the fighter he once was.
At UFC on FOX 2, Maia took on budding contender Chris Weidman, who on just 11 days notice, managed to eek out a decision over the tested veteran, who had an ample amount of time to prepare for such a momentous occasion.
This Brazilian jiu-jitsu whiz first stormed through the Octagon with a 5-0 streak, all victories coming by way of submission.
Now, Maia has gone 3-3 in his last six outings and has failed to finish a fight in nearly three years.
Maia needs to turn a corner here—and soon—otherwise, his career will be in jeopardy.
