I'm not sure how the myth of Guida being an entertaining fighter ever got started.

Siler is an animal, he could easily end up being the best guy to come out of that season of TUF now that he's training more seriously.

The Diego Sanchez fight was awesome so that's probably where his fame started

Tyson Griffin? Roger Huerta?

Those two fights were much better than the Sanchez fight.

Guida and his team were actually *****ing about the decision and got into it with Maynard after the fight. Starts around 8:15 of this video....



Watching that makes me dislike Guida even more than I already do.

Guida's been involved in tons of exciting fights, and he has some dogs mixed in there as well. I don't think you can 'blanket' his excitement level under one adjective.

Guida did nothing to warrant a victory. Gray should have went into brawl mode earlier than the 4th. Guida throws a lot but he doesn't do a lot of damage. I've never liked him or the way he fights.

Guida sucks.

Always has, always will.

Boring ass fights.

Three legit stoppages in four and a half years.

I caught the main event after reading the commentary. Wasn't quite as bad as I was expecting, but Guida was certainly backing up a lot. Fight metric has it pretty close to a draw, and I certainly don't think this was the clear win for Maynard that Dana did. Clay took the first two rounds, and I think he actually hurt Gray in the 5th. Ultimately though it's probably a good thing that the strategy Clay employed didn't earn him a victory.

Stout / Fisher was good. The fight right before was good too.

Guida sucks. I loved the Sanchez fight, but ever since he's just boring.

His fight with Benderson was great.
