I was hoping this fight might get bumped up. While neither man might ever be champion, this particular fight just spells 'excitement'. Great card. Thank Christ it's being broadcast on Sportsnet, as well.

You asked why he hasn't fought, I answered. He probably moved down because he wasn't a big LHW to begin with. Also, Anderson "hurting him so bad" would have nothing to do with him moving down, as he moved into his division.

I said Guida isn't boring because he isn't. Sure his fight against Diaz wasn't the best but look at his other ones. The one against Huerta was awesome and his fight against Mac was so high paced and fun it was ridiculous. When you gauge a fighter as boring, try using fights that aren't just their last fight or two.

this should be fun, both have zero interest in taking the fight to the ground and there are a couple of interesting factors that make this more than a simple pleasing on the eye brawl. How will Irvin do after something like 20 months without a fight? rusty? gas early due to the weight cut? Will Sakara's seemingly more patient game plan do the trick and has he improved his striking even further after moving to ATT? plus Sakara would be 4-1 in his last 5 with a win and could really put himself in a position for some big fights in the coming months.

Always appreciating the fine workings of Sakara, Almeida, Gonzaga

ok real reasons, and believe me, i have unfortunately watched all of Guidas UFC fights.

He has had a couple FOTNs because his opponent beat him unmercillessly and he can take a beating.

when he is winning fights are extremely boring. he loves to just have control on the ground and do little to nothing with it.

IMO Clay Guida is Mr. LnP. He has a big heart, way above average chin and amazing cardio. He isnt that good at anything but hugging ppl down tho IMO

of course everybody entitled to their own opinins i know alot of guys love "the carpenter", his style just bores me and i used to wrestle...

I've never really been impressed with Irvin. He has KO power but his striking isn't really anything to be amazed about. I see Sakara winning this by TKO.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.
