"I see Anderson with a higher percentage of chances to win but I also believe very much in Chael. I remember in his fight versus Nate Marquardt everyone told he was going to lose and I said he was dangerous. I guess he got chances this time. He takes down well and owns a good stand-up base and will go towards Anderson to put him down to score points and win by decision."
Former UFC middleweight number one contender Demian Maia has competed against both UFC 117 headliners Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. For Maia, "The Spider" has more chances to keep the belt but he doesn't discard Sonnen's ability to defeat the Brazilian using his wrestling skills to take him down and score sufficient points and possibly grounding and pounding his way to the title. Is Demian just bitter for what Silva did to him at UFC 112? Or is Chael really good enough to become the next champion?
