Tough choice, but I gotta go with Guida. Could easily go either way, but I think Guida will grind out a decision. Looks like a candidate for fight of the year already. Really looking forward to this fight.

I have Guida grinding out a decision win rather easily against Pettis. IMO, Pettis is over-rated.

It still amazes me how so many people jumped on the hype train after Pettis threw and landed that kick.

I have not checked the betting odds but if Guida comes in as the underdog, I will probably place a healthy bet on Guida.

I'm going with Pettis TKO. I think he will wow the world with something special. Dana White will have no choice to but give him his shot quicker.
I think Guida is a good fighter tho, and it will be a tough fight, possibly fight of the year

They're pretty much even unfortunately. I was hoping he would be at least +150 or something but he's not. Makes sense though. I've still included him in my parlay.

I jumped on the train after the fight, not the kick. Henderson doesn't lay down for anyone, and Pettis brought it to him. I'm split on this fight, though. But, right now I'm siding with Pettis by decision.

I applaud your enthusiasm.

Guida is by no means a top tier fighter but what he does have is the perfect style to beat someone like Pettis. Guida will force the action. He will pressure Pettis. He will turn this into a brawl and force the take-downs. He will overwhelm Pettis with a high pace and hopefully this will break Pettis. ....and IMO, Pettis is very breakable.

Gotta side with Kungfu on this one. I can't wait for the fight

Dont understand the Guida love at all, his best chance is to hold Pettis down for three rounds which pettis wont let him do, he will constantly look to get up, sweep or slap on a sub to either finish or make his opponent move. I think Ben Henderson is a level above Guida at this point and though styles make fights, this is Pettis' fight to lose, he could KO, SUB or Decision Guida if he fights to his potential. Guida on the other hand has hit his ceiling and is barely above .500 in the UFC for a reason, he cant beat the top guys, where I put Pettis, in the top 10.

Guida. Either Unam but if the fight does it get finished it will be guida by submission. WIth Clay at Jacksons you know he his going to have a great game plan going into this fight. Also Pettis is a very inconistant fighter. It is either going to be a close fight with Clay still winning, or Clay tossing Pettis around. I don't see Show Time's flashy moves working on Clay.
