There are several, pivotal and compelling bouts booked for UFC 198 on Saturday, including the welterweight contest between Demian Maia and Matt Brown. After all, it will feature one of the best, if not the best, grappler in the game, Mr. Maia, taking on one of the most aggressive and dangerous welterweights in the UFC, Mr. Brown.
If Maia wins, and if he does so in convincing fashion, then his hat will be quickly thrown in the ring for a title shot. If Brown wins, however, then it will serve as a powerful reminder that he remains a top contender at 170.
In advance of the fight, the UFC has posted the preview video below. Can Brown keep the fight standing and avoid Maia’s oppressive and feared top game? We shall see.
