Um, wouldn't that just be your aunt and uncle on your mother's (maternal) side? You're only talking one generation up so I don't get why you'd go one generation further when it doesn't clarify anything. Your uncle from your maternal grandfather's side is the same person if you'd said maternal grandmother's side as he'd be son to both of them, no?
I'm told I'm the spitting image of my father's mum. This would support the mother to son, then father to daughter theory. However I'm also told I resemble his sister (who resembled her mother strongly), which doesn't support the theory. I only resemble my father in the eyes (and apparently his walk). There is zero similarity in physical appearance to my mother though I have her voice.
