what y'all think about the maynard/guida fight? I thought the decision was just. to me, guida was running away the whole fight. I thought the judges was gonna give it to guida. I liked when maynard got so pissed of guida running, he stood there and took a couple of guidas best shots to the face and then bumrushed him for the guillotine
I agree, Maynard won.

Hey Doc, I thought that the Maynard/Guida fight sucked. I can't believe Guidas stradegy. I thought Guida would win and was disappointed in the way he ran around....Strike one.
Whats up Gyro? Just talkin to Doc now huh? lol jk
Naw the Guida fight did suck and it's been the talk of a lot of mma sites. Here's a link to my favorite article on the subject. And my answer to the article's title question is YES!
Is Greg Jackson ruining MMA?
Post Gray Maynard fight, Clay Guida said “I think mixed martial arts is, the guy who gets hit the least, usually is the victor.” Is he right?
