Guida/Hioki was a competitive fight, I think it's clear that Hioki was the more skilled fighter but Guida was stronger. I gave the first to Hioki, third to Guida and you can make a case for either guy to win the 2nd. It really came down to what you valued more the slam or the headkick.

Personally I feel like fighters need to stop counter-striking Guida. If Hioki went on the offense just a little bit, he moved forward for 20 or 30 more seconds in either round 2 or 3 I think he could have stolen the rounds and beaten him 30-27.

I'd set him up to face Mendes next and then if he beats Mendes I would give him either Siver, Jung or the loser of Aldo/Edgar. Basically he needs three big wins after that performance.

Good post John.

I don't really hold it against Guida because he just isn't very skilled as as fighter. He's doing what he needs to do to 'win.'

He's not like Condit vs Diaz or GSP vs everyone where they're endlessly talented fighters who just choose to fight safe because it's easier.

Edit: I'd rep you, but the silly system won't let me

I hope he gets Mendes. Guida is gonna get smashed!

Whose next for Guida? Doesn't matter unless until he fights Frankie Edgar he is winning fights.

Give him a real wrestler, the division has a few of them, Mendes, Edgar, Siver showed solid wreslting, Lamas, maybe even Grand Daddy Mike Brown could show that whipper snapper a thing or two.

Personally I don't hate Guida but I don't think he'll ever win three fights in a row in the UFC again.

No he's not. He just won a fight he shouldn't of won vs. a guy with not much TDD at all. He won a crappy split.

He will lose to most anyone who he can't take down and hold down. I mean he could always steal a bad striking contest, because judges and some fans think his punches actually land....when they hit guys in the arm or he just comes away with air.

Guida is terrible. Not that I expected much. But I expected a little more coming off the most shameful performance from a UFC fighter in years.

Guida would lose to Lentz. He will lose to sub guys if he ever did anything on the ground. Instead he hugs against the corner of the cage or throws little elbows.

He stole a fight on the cards, like vintage Greg Jackson gameplans are meant to do. Maybe he would steal fights all the way to the top....but I doubt it.
