I would rather watch someone get the takedown and throw down some punishment while avoiding getting subbed like Frank Edgar did against Hermes Franca.

I was disaponited with that fight. I was pulling for Mac due to him growing up near me but I just felt like Guida was one step above LNP in that fight. He only tried to finish it in the last 10 seconds. I like both guys but Macs lack of cardio and Guidas willingness to get a decision bummed me out.


LNP? He was trying for slams and suplexes all night....



He's right, it wasn't lay n pray, but it WAS a pathetic hold and wait all damn night long. I dont care who you like and who you wanted to win, Guida put forth a lot of effort into HOLDING Danzig against the cage and doing NOTHING.

Danzig was clearly frustrated with this, as was I, and so should everyone else have been. This was a very dissapointing performance by Guida. All he did was hold onto Mac. Sad fight.




I'm sure Guida would have opened up some GnP if he could have gotten away from the kimura and omoplata attempts by Danzig.

I think again this falls into the category of a chess battle going on where some people appreciate it and others want to see a huge finish. I appreciated watching Danzig's very technical and calm attempts at defending takedowns, getting back up, and looking for submissions. It was a great style to contrast Guida's brute strength and relentless pace.

To each their own. I found the fight to be highly entertaining.



I have no idea how someone could not appreciate that fight. Guida wore the shit out of danzig in this fight and his constant pressure was what made the fight IMO.



Exactly, bro. I believe you could literally see the part of the fight where Guida BROKE Danzig. Mentally in the 3rd round a look came across Danzig's face that said he was broken. That's because Guida trains his ass off and never lets up with relentless pressure.



I took it as annoyance at being held down. I saw that look, it was a look of frustration at Guida's aggressive holding game plan. He threw a handful of shots the last 10 seconds of the 3rd round. Other than that, I really lost alot of respect for Guida that night.
