As long as it doesn't get any smaller I'd take Guida all day, especially being a 5 round fight...Clay is only susceptible to being submitted and Gray won't do that, plus Clay has never been KO'd, so Gray has to win a decision against a cardio freak...I think its almost guaranteed to go the distance given their history.

Stick to those guns!
While I do expect Maynard to win, I think 3-1 is a bit overboard. I would have called 2-1 max, as many of Guidas strengths are also Maynards and I may even give a striking edge to Guida. Who knows, he may employ his jungle japes strategy that ruined Gomi.

The odds seem right to me. Comparing the competition each man has fought in the last few years, Maynard should UD this all day long.
