Demian Maia vs. Alexander Yakovlev full fight video highlights from TUF Brazil 3 Finale

Winning ugly is still winning. Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran Demian Maia snapped a two-fight losing streak -- the first of his career -- by pushing around Octagon newcomer Alexander Yakovlev on May 31, 2014 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, as the Russian "Bad Boy" had no answer for the Brazilian's stifling ground game (recap here). While the hometown crowd would have loved a submission from the grappling ace, he at least gets to leave The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil 3" Finale (results) with the "W," which keeps him relevant in the promotion's crowded 170-pound division. Who would you like to see him fight next?
