Demian Maia has been working hard in preparing for his January 28 commitment against England’s foremost MMA fighter, Michael Bisping, at UFC on Fox 2 in Chicago—the very night Chael Sonnen takes on Mark Muñoz, and Rashad Evans faces Phil Davis.

The ADCC 2007 champion knows he has his work cut out for him, and as his ground game is his main asset, nothing could be more fitting than to buttress it with his usual weapons—and other less predictable ones.


In the following video, the São Paulo native grapples with 2007 judo world champion Thiago Camilo, who also took silver at the Sidney Olympic Games, back in 2000.
