Clay did the most damage and landed more, but am kind of glad he lost. The running was far to negative and those kind of strategy's will ruin the sport. I dont mind people going backwards but they need to still fight, theres really no need for guida to run that much, he could landed a lot more imo.

Maybe because he out-struck Guida in the third, fourth, and fifth?

The octagon needs to be much smaller, that's the one thing I've learned from both the Condit and Guida fights.

That'd just mean more clinching/stalling against fence.

The Octagon size changes per venue. I think they have at least three different sizes they use based on what will fit in the stadium best. One of them in particular is fairly small.

Guida fought the way he always fights, except he was facing a superior wrestler, so minus the takedowns. Never really understood why he was so popular.

And I skimmed most of the past five pages, so I'm sorry if it's been brought up before, but does anyone else think that if Clay hadn't been forced to braid his hair he would never have escaped that guillotine?

They use a smaller cage for the TUF Finales at the Palms, but I think every other cage is the same size. I could be wrong about that but the cage they use at the Palms is most certainly smaller.

The strategies coming out of Jackson's camp are horrible. They claim to be scientists of the sport, how arrogant, I wonder where some of their younger fighters get it from...

And wow, they have fighters who finish fights too... of course they do, there is not one UFC fighter with zero stoppages on their record, it's inevitable.

You wait until those fighters are in a title fight or big main event though, they'll be backpedalling, circling and punching thin air for the whole 25 minutes.

They're fighting to not lose rather than to win, Maynard being awarded the decision is a huge step in the right direction, what a relief.

This, Maynard easily stuffed his take down and Guida's face was pretty much buried into the mat. Maynard pulled guard on his own will for that guilltoine choke. I'm guessing Tramai wasn't paying much attention at that point, although that whole situation was probably the most exciting part of the fight.
