Like a fine wine, Demian Maia only gets better with age.
The 38-year-old jiu-jitsu savant submitted Carlos Condit with a masterful rear-naked choke in less than two minutes at UFC on FOX 21, notching his sixth straight victory and thrusting himself into the UFC title conversation at 170 pounds. Catch reaction to Maia’s incredible victory below, plus the best of the rest from an entertaining night in Vancouver.
Striking is cool and all, until you have a King Cobra like Maia on your back. Man! What an impressive victory!!! I can’t wait til I’m back!!
