Fight Capsule: Relive Maia’s ultraviolent finish of Story in Rio



maia-chokeAfter kicking off the first 5 fights of his UFC career with submission victories (4 of which earned him a submission of the night honors) Demian Maia would go 5-4 in his next night bouts with zero submission wins to speak of. Maybe he just needed to revisit Brazil.

In his first fight on home soil since he won three fights in one night as part of a Super Challenge tournament back in 2006, Maia completed one of the most violent submissions in UFC history against his aptly named opponent Rick “The Horror” Story.

Do your proper research ahead of his UFC Fight Night 62 main event contest against Ryan LaFlare this Saturday night and relive this short, sweet and deadly piece of mixed martial arts history below.
