I am curious what tactic will Guida have fo Pettis' stand-up.
I don't think he will do "tribal-dance" arround him, like he did against Gomi.
With Gomi it was easier, considering he didn't have any wrestling skills and not much BJJ to offer.
Guida's strategy was brilliant, even if it wasn't the most pleasent to watch. It did the job.
I believe that won't work against Pettis.
As far as cardio-energy-endurance, both fighters are excellent. Guida can go all-out untill the final bell and Pettis went 5 intense rounds against Henderson.
I think Guida is a bit stronger and has what it takes to get Pettis to the ground. But i expect him to have big problems on the ground trying to impose his will.
And even on the feet. Pettis is more creative, has better technique and is very dangerous of his back also.
But Guida has Greg Jackson and that is a big factor in this equation. I think the key for Guida to win this will be his wrestling.
For Pettis - everything else.
My money is on Pettis. Maybe a submission in the 3rd.
