I would be very surprised if Guida or Le won.

It's a 5 rounder and Guida can keep his pace for months and Gray starts tiring after 2. Not saying I'd pick Guida, but it wouldn't surprise me if it goes the distance.

When he's swinging and missing. I'd be surprised if Guida attempted to do anything other than Wrestle.

Great match-ups!!! Especially free tv...been waiting for Maynard/Guida to be announced for a while...it's almost guaranteed to go to a decision even being 5 rounds, if it was 3 rounds I'd favor Maynard but 5 rounds definitely favours Guida with his pace.
Franklin/Le has entertainment written all over it...Rich's power will be too much for Le at this point in his career.

Shouldn't this event really be UFC on FX 3??

Anyway, it seems that Rich is just quite content now to bounce between 205 and 185, taking whatever fights the UFC offer him. This guy used to be a champion and is someone I still have loads of respect for and dare I say it, maybe doesn't get the props he deserves for his role in the early UFC boom..

Maynard/Guida is another example of how you can throw any top lightweight together and at the same time, guarantee yourself a FOTN contender. If it's a five-rounder, then I gotta go with Clay. The guy's been so close to a title shot on multiple occasions and if he puts it all together, he's a helluva challenge for anybody with his caveman style. C'mon Clay, no more losses until you're fighting for the belt..

both of these fights are wicked. it's been a while since franklins fought but i see him putting a whipping on le.

Maynard vs Guida will be closer, but I gotta go with gray on this one.

Seems some people are confused, Franklin vs. Le is happening at UFC 148 not at FX4.

Wow!

Both are amazing fights. Joe Silva and Sean Shelby get better at their jobs every day, it seems.

Guida will have the gas tank to go all 5 and Maynard has been fading after 15 minutes his last 2 fights (though he did punch himself out in the first round 2 fights ago)

Le vs Franklin is a coin flip for me, but a great fight nonetheless

Cant' wait for Le and Franklin. My first thought was that Franklin will win this easy but after thinking back to his fight with Griffin I'm not so sure.
I wonder how much of a hamper that arm will be?
