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.
Anderson Silva spent 3 rounds beating Maia up and moving backwards when he had Maia hurt, he then spent the last 2 rounds with some of the most embarrassing run away backwards shit we have EVER seen from a champ. The guy received a warning from the ref to quit running away and fight.
