On October 9., the UFC will head down to Sau Paulo, Brazil for what very well may be the most technical grappling match the UFC has put on all year as Brazilian Demian Maia takes on American jiu-jitsu artist Jake Shields.

Both men are elite, world class grapplers and bring a wealth of international experience into the Octagon. Maia, riding a three fight unbeaten streak, is looking to solidify himself at the top of the welterweight division. Former Strikeforce champion Shields, however, is looking to build a win streak of his own.

Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg break down the compelling UFC Fight Night headliner and if he's correct in his estimation of the bout, we're going to have a incredible, hyper technical fight with both men going for brutal submissions.
