wow over 50% taking Guillard in a 3 option poll?
I just don't see it; he doesn't even have a top 5 win. Ever.
I wouldn't even put him top contender at 155 in the UFC in Jackson's camp.
Guida vs. Benson for next shot sounds about right.
Let Guillard prove his might over Jim Miller.
Couldn't agree more.
I will admit that Guillard has looked good lately but against who? His signature win at this point is against a very solid but ultimately over hyped Evan Duhham then toss in a couple of guys that were obviously over matched (Waylon Lowe and Ronys Torres) and a couple of close split decisions that just happened to go in his favor and I can't really see how he deserves a title shot right now. Don't get me wrong, he looks great and those are all solid guys but Kpro nailed it, not one win against anyone in the top 5...ever.
The only reason we are having this conversation is because Guida beat Pettis in less than exciting fashion ( I thought it was great fight) Guida and Guillard are on similar streaks against similar competition but the difference is that Guida beat the number one contender at the time, that alone should have given him the shot. f(possibly after Miller if he would have won)But as much as I love Guida, a fight with Bendo makes sense now, Henderson looked like an animal against Miller and Guida needs to make the statement he should have made against Pettis. This fight needs to happen because there is no way that you could deny the winner a title shot.
Guillard/Miller is a great idea. I just don't have much confidence in Guillard against a solid wrestler with great subs who is not dumb enough to sit in front of those bombs Guillard throws.
