How did he break Dos Anjos jaw then?

I didn't he drop Sanchez and Gomi at some point in their fights?

Rampage Jackson losing to Ryan Bader
Yushin Okami losing to Tim Boestch
Mark Hominick losing to Chan Sung Jung
Jake Shields losing to Jake Ellenberger
Shane Carwin losing to JDS
Brock losing to Overeem

Fighters that face top competition post title fights tend to lose the ones that tend to win typically take on guys significantly weaker than them (Maia/Miranda, Belfort/Akiyama, Koscheck/Hughes).

I can't wait to see what Gray has worked on since last time we saw him... Especially during his friendly visit at Aldo's camp

Yea but breaking someone jaw doesnt necessarily mean you have power, you just need to catch the guy wrong. Dos Anjos fought for nearly 10 more minutes with a broken jaw. And don't think he dropped Sanchez or Gomi, may be mistaken though. Thought Sanchez battered him first round then Guida layed on him the last 2; and he took Gomi down in the 2nd and submitted him.

I meant I didn't get the heavy handed comment But yeah, I hope that trend continues here! I'd love for Guida to put a beating on 'The Bully'

Bolded = added a few others! There's probably a few more as well. Crazy.

I honestly don't remember what Gray is like fighting anyone other than Frankie.

Can't make a bet here because of that.

I clearly remember he dropped Gomi cause it was a WTF moment. That said I think these odds are skewed, Guida is incredibly hard to finish and brings a pace second to none. I could easily see him wearing Gray down. I am assuming this is a 5 rounder and being one IMO favors Guida who I can't see a 5 round fight against anybody being detrimental for.

Wrestling-heavy and dependant on huge bombs while standing... His striking looked improved against Frankie

He used to get a ton of shit from the butthurt anti-wrestling community for using what he's done his entire life. He was up there with Fitch and GSP for a long time for being a "boring" fighter.
