Eduardo Telles speaks to Tatame:
"He’s very aggressive and has Wrestling base, but I think this isn’t a secret to Demian. Run a bit of a risk standing, but Demian is left handed and is also no fool standing, knows how to kick, how to punch... I think it isn’t for Nate.
This is probably the one fight on the UFC 102 card that I'm anticipating more than all the others. You just have to wonder how far one particular discipline can take Demian Maia as he progresses up the ranks to tougher competition. I just don't know if it'll be enough to get past Nate Marquardt.
