I guess Royce isn't fighting Maia

It's time to separate the men from the boys.

Mark Munoz will get a chance to prove he truly is one of the top 185-pound contenders when he faces Demian Maia at UFC 131 on June 11 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

MMAmania.com confirmed the bout was in the works earlier today.

Good fight!

I expect it to end up on the ground where Maia will submit Munoz - but who knows? I don't think Munoz will be able to maintain top control enough to finish up with ground and pound - but if Munoz DOES win this, he's a legit contender at 185 for sure.

my brain tells me munoz will hit maia big standing, then not follow when he falls to the ground, then rinse and repeat.

my heart says maia will find a way to win because he ****ing rules.

i'll take maia in any sig bets against anyone.

I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Munoz win this - but I just don't think it's going to happen. I think Maia will get it to the ground and end it there. Munoz's best chance is to keep it standing, but I think Maia is technical enough that he can avoid damage there and pull guard or force Munoz to try another plan of attack.

He did show improved stand up his last fight. Granted he didn't have anywhere but UP to go. (Maia that is)
