UFC Singapore Fight Night.While most mixed martial arts fans hold a certain level of respect towards UFC fighters, there are still those on the roster who are vilified for whatever reason.

In this day and age of MMA where the sport has immensely evolved, one may expect for fans to be more knowledgeable about each and every facet involved. However, there are still some fans who are seemingly stuck in the UFC's "Just Bleed" era and are only after the stand-and-bang action.

Those are the same fans who continue to hate on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Demian Maia. Most of their gripes are about him being too "one-dimensional" since he uses his grappling as his primary weapon in most of his fights.

In Maia's defense, he has also evolved as an overall fighter. It was evident when he was able to light up top-ranked welterweight Colby Covington during their striking exchange when they fought in Sao Paulo, Brazil last October, making any of these arguments against him practically invalid.
