Hioki straight robbed.
Guida isn't winning cruising threw anyone at 145 with performances like this. Judges are bound to get 1 right.
Guida is a disgrace. I used to cheer for the guy. Not anymore, no f'ing way.
There was no controversy in regards to the stand up, Hioki clearly won but he couldn't keep Guida from taking him down, you've been watching MMA long enough to know takedowns are favored over striking.
I agree with you though(shocker!) that when he fights a guy like Mendes or Edgar that provided he doesn't try to pull his bullshit run in a circle gameplan he did against Maynard he's gonna get worked.
