Well, I plan on becoming ignorant of his future fights. As for his fight history, you can pretty much go down the line and it will a be a 50/50 on whether the fight is decent/exciting versus extremely boring..
My opinions on some of his fights
Hatsu Hioki - boring
Gray Maynard - fucking boring
Benson Henderson - exciting.. cause he got whooped
Anthony Pettis - mediocre/boring.. I liked seeing anthony work off his back, but guida just defended and didnt do anything, which was pretty boring.
Takanori Gomi - painful to watch until it was finally ended.
Rafael dos Anjos - dont remember this one except dos anjos hurting his jaw and tapping out
Shannon Gugerty - don't recall
Kenny Florian - exciting cause kenny schooled him
Diego Sanchez - exciting cause diego beat him up
Nate Diaz - this was actually a really good guida fight
Mac Danzig - Lamest fight ever.. Guida got outclassed standing and couldn't get any take downs so he held mac on the cage for all 3 rounds.. and somehow got the win.
blah blah blah.. Feel free to throw more tapout insults my way because I don't like guida.
The Gomi fight was "painful" to watch? The Pettis fight was boring? And you only found the parts where his opponents were on the offensive exciting? No credit to Guida at all, huh?
Also, Dos Anjos didn't hurt his jaw, Clay Guida hurt it for him.
But I guess you were too bored to notice, lol.
Well, I guess since this is an opinion-based argument, we'll just have to agree to disagree. I'm sorry you feel that way, maybe someday you'll change your mind.
