A while back there was a thread on what fighters you root for or pick no matter who they fight- and what fighters do you always cheer for to lose..
Guida was very high on the list of most rooted for and its obvious why- his fights are exciting- he has huge heart and energy and I can rember him ever not having top notch Cardio-
Danzig seemed to rub alot of people the wrong way on TUF-
I think its a pretty good matchup. I am having a hard time because i want to pick with my head not my heart... who do you like to win this? why??
What I wanted to post was that Guida was one of those guys that I hope doesn't go down the Patrick Cote road from about a year ago. Being a guy who puts on great fights, totally likeable, but not quite good enough to finish fights consistently. Patrick has turned it around. Hopefully Guida can start stringing 2/3 fight win streaks and put away a real top 10 guy. I'd hate to see him end up just quietly dissapearing after a 2 fight losing streak, like so many fighters that have never been champions seem to do. I'm gonna go with my heart and my head on this one. I think Clay is going to be too tenatious for Danzig. Plus, I think this is a fight he really needs to win so he can get a sniff at top 10 consideration. He's so close.
So here goes... Guida by submission 2nd round.
