"I lost the fight to GSP, but tonight was so much grappling and scrambling -- it was exhausting," said Shields. "The Brazilian fans are so hostile, it makes it tougher. Tough fight, but luckily I got through."
The win over Maia puts Shields at 3-0, with one No Contest since his loss to St-Pierre.
- Thiago Silva has done little to ingratiate himself with UFC brass lately, and his win over Matt Hamill last night was likely a necessary one to keep his job. In six fights, Silva has lost two and had two victories overturned due to a falsified urine sample and a positive marijuana test. Though he earned two fight night bonuses for a June win over Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante, Silva showed up for these latest weigh-ins two pounds overweight. UFC president Dana White was not at all amused, and cracked a joke at the Brazilian's expense over Twitter. He tweeted:
