"My last two (fights against Jim Miller and Roger Huerta) have been pretty much all stand-up. There's people that kind of get it in their head, and they don't let it go. You can't please everyone. I know my stand-up is at the top, so I'm not stressing it at all. I'm really working to improve my skills and to do it right and just not flail around ... I'm ready to go, whenever. But I need to get past Nate first."
Unstoppable UFC lightweight Gray Maynard is hoping to rid himself of the "lay-and-pray" label with a dominating performance against Nate Diaz in tonight's (Jan. 11) main event of UFC Fight Night 20. "The Bully" used his staunch wrestling attack to thwart the rise of Frankie Edgar in a high-profile bout at UFC 13 back in April 2008 but has since relied on a more versatile offense to keep his perfect record intact. Is Maynard successfully transforming himself into a complete mixed martial artist? Or will he always be known to fans as a wrestlemaniac?
