Guida isn't nearly as good a wrestler. No way he had a chance of wrestle****in Maynard.
You want to talk about boring avoidance tactics though nobody in UFC has put on more avoidance BS in fights than the man in your sig Anderson Silva against Demian Maia, guess you go a fight to watch before you edit that sig?
Anderson spent 3 rounds walking near Maia who then rolled on his back like a crab. In the 4th round Anderson was pretty gassed and was waiting for Maia to come in...but he didnt. Why in the world would the greatest stand up fighter in history avoid a guy who is pretty shit at stand up?
Guida doesnt need to be a good wrestler. He can put anyone against the cage. He's like a weaker wrestling Sonnen. He would have put Maynard on the cage, and Maynard would have had the same frustration as he did in their actual fight.
