Not many people here have been hating on Guida. He did what he had to do within the existing rules. The main complaints were regards the system that's in place that allows fights to be won this way.
I agree though, that blaming Guida is ridiculous. Even for me.
All i'm saying is people should really calm the f*ck down when talking sh*t about Guida. (i'm not even a big fan...like i've previously mentioned)
This was the first fight in a very loooooooooooooooong time, he didn't perform at *warp speed*.
His opponent was a big step-up however from his recent ones.
Rules are like this. For the first time, Guida thought about winning a fight by using the current rules, against a fighter more talented and more skilled than he is is.
Many people think he should have just fight his usual reckless-exciting style.
Maybe even get subbed in the process... Right?!
If Guida would have fought the same way by now, he would have been much higher in the ranks. He wouldn't have lost against guys like Florian, Huerta or Griffin.
For once, Guida thought more about what's best for him, not the fans: winning ---> rising in the rankings ---> getting better fights ---> making more money ---> better life for himself/his family.
And "MMA expert wannabees" can't deal with that...
