Who will win Maia vs Askren?
Maia is coming off two wins this year, against Lyman Good and Rocco Martin, so he should be in good spirits. He also has a successful career already under his belt, considered to be one of the best wrestlers in the sport. He's probably looking forward to continuing his winning streak.
On the other hand, Askren is an Olympic wrestler eager to show off his skills, so he's going to be a worthy adversary. He made his UFC debut against Robbie Lawler in early 2019 and managed to make headlines after being violently knocked out with a flying knee just five seconds into the first round of his bout with Jorge Masvidal back in July. Needless to say, he should be desperate to get back into the winning column. We'll have to wait and see which of the two talented fighters will come out on top.
