Once more with feeling. This and the DC/Jon Jones fight are what MMA is all about. Stylistically compelling match-ups to see who is truly the top dog in the world within this weight class. You cannt argue that any one other than these guys are it. I was not impressed with Woodley for the vast majority of rounds he fought against Thompson, but he is the champ and has dispatched many men along the way. Maia has submitted or utterly dominated everyone he's faced on his way to this title shot in his win streak. DC has only lost to Jon Jones and Jon Jones' only loss is actually a DQ due to that downward elbow rule and a controversial stoppage/ruling.
This is what we watch mixed martial arts to see. Period.
