To be fair I think this is his first fight in recent memory that he hasn't been able to improve position or inflict gnp. That was mostly due to Pettis. It's already been explained how important this fight was for him. He was barely able to stay on top without getting subbed. Opening up any more he would have lost position.

Not the most fun thing to watch, but makes sense if you're Guida. FYI I thought the fight was very entertaining. I kept thinking Pettis was going to get the sub. Some of those kicks he did were awesome to watch even if they didn't connect. All and all I thought it was a very entertaining fight.

He will never be Champ. He can't outwrestle Frankie, Gray, Gilbert. On top of that..these guys will put a beating on HIM. He should of just stayed a fan fav. and put on exciting fights. I could care less if this guy shows up on a PPV. It's worse then Jon Fitch.

"Used to?!?!" ... LMAO

This was his first fight he "didn't go crazy" since...forever.

14 UFC fights - 6 awards. I believe he has the highest award percentage for fighters with over 10 fights in hte UFC.

In his previous 6 fights - prior to the Pettis fight - he won 4 awards - 2 FOTN (one being FOTY 2009) and 2 SOTN awards.
And his fight with dos Anjos was a favourite to win FOTN awards, except dos Anjos had that jaw injury.

You are clearly trolling - or you don't have clue what you're talking about...so i will just stop here and focus my attention on people who are reasonable.

PS: enjoy being RED!

Agreed.

It was a great ground battle, one MMA newbies can look at and learn a few things, about how to defend subs from top position and how to work from the bottom.

Sadly, a lot of people still don't udnerstand this aspect of today's MMA.

They're just stuck in the "UFC 1-15 timezone".

I haven't liked Guida for a very long time its not just this fight that bothers me. I saw through his BS a long time ago. Bouncing around and waving your long greasy hair for three rounds hardly is enough for me to believe that he is a top fighter and is damaging the other fighter to take win after win.

Sure the guy has his moments but he is highly overrated and grossly abuses the scoring system. I've said it in another thread and I'll say it again, when does this guy ever hurt a guy or put him in bad spots? Sure he has a few subs to his credit, probably due to the influence over at Jacksons but as soon as he fights someone that isn't a lower level fighter he has little to no chance of finishing or inflicting any damage at all.

He probably gets more flack then he deserves but I've been anti-Clay for years now due to his dry-hump approach in fights so it doesn't bother me one bit when I see guys critisizing his style. Anyone that disagrees just go back and watch his fights with the commentary off, you'll see a lot of points that I bring up are true. You don't have to agree with everything I say because you don't have to like what I like but the fights alone show it all.

Yeah, look at how we won his past 4 fights! 1 decision and 3 submissions. What a loser. A real fighter would never settle for that kind of record. 100% finishes is the only acceptable result.

Kicking cats is more fun. They make far more noise, and don't bruise the toes as bad.
