In once of the stacked undercards of UFC 194, Demian Maia defeats Gunnar Nelson via decision to strengthen his position as one of the best of the welterweights. It was chess match from the opening bell with both men using their skills and experience to outmaneuver each other on the floor.
However, it quickly became apparent that Maia was the better of the two in the way that he was able to control the fight. Nelson was simply outgunned by the most decorated BJJ fighter in the UFC. He was able to survive the three rounds but the judges had a clear winner in Maia.
