You make it seem like they were a one sided beating. The Tyson Griffin loss was an amazing back and forth fight that could have gone either way.
He was actually handily beating Roger Huerta in a fight of the year, until he got caught in the RNC in the third.
The Diego fight is the closest he came to being an "exciting punching bag", but that is because you only seem to remember Diego's amazing assault in the first half of round 1. Guida actually rallied back and lost yet another close split decision in the end.
Even the Henderson fight wasn't one-sided. Although Benson won all three rounds, Guida was very much in the fight from beginning to end.
A couple of bad showings don't erase the exciting fights he has put on in the past.
Saying "His only exciting fights are the ones where he gets beat up..." shows that you are either ignorant when it comes to his fight history, or another ignorant "Just bleed" 'UFC' fan.
