Maia escapes a rear naked choke attempt. Back in Maia’s full guard. Shoulder strikes by MacDonald. MacDonald postures up and lands some shots. MacDonald has a deep guilatine. Maia is bleeding. Maia escapes and takes MacDonald’s back with rear naked choke in. Wow. MacDonald survived! Amazing! Amazing!
Rd.2 – Maia catches MacDonald with a left. Clinched up. Maia throws some knees then takes MacDonald down. Maia is on top and in full mount. Elbows by Maia. Big punches by Maia. Big elbows. Maia still with the ground and pound. Still in full mount for over a minute. MacDonald hanging on from the bottom. MacDonald pops out but Maia has his arm; he’s out. MacDonald on top now in half guard looking to pass as the bell sounds.
Rd.3 – MacDonald lands a punch and Maia gets the takedown. MacDonald reverses and gets on top. MacDonald’s corner told him not to play this ground game with Maia but he still is. Maia sweeps and ends up in full mount. Elbows from the top. MacDonald gives up his back. Maia still striking from MacDonald’s back. Maia sinks in the choke and MacDonald taps, too exhausted to defend I imagine.
