    Pettis has a damn good guard, and he's a pretty tall dude.

    Guida made Pettis work his ass off, he may not have done much damage but I guarantee you Pettis was a hell of a lot more tired than Guida at the end of this fight. It was what Guida had to do, and people aren't giving him any credit for the fact that he actually did exchange on the feet with Anthony more than he had to, and did land some good shots, and he was usually the one pressuring. Pettis' head kick was by far his most effective strike but outside of that he didn't really land much of anything at all.

    Guida was landing some decent GNP, more than people are giving him credit for. People were all over Rick Story's balls after his last win, but people are going to rag on Guida for a more impressive performance against a more well rounded fighter? GTFO.

    We just saw how Bendo DOMINATED Bocek, and he is a very strong wrestler and pettis handily won a decision against him. He is a total fighter and Guida shut his game down 100%. Its a good win for him.

    I think Clay would have a chance against Frankie or Gray, especially Grey. He would just have to strike as little as he possibly could and initiate a grappling match as much as he possibly could. He'd prolly lose to Frankie due to his speed and excellent cardio, but I think he could potentially grind a victory out over Grey. He should have lost his fight against Frankie, and his split decisions over Diaz and Huerta were debatable. He got it taken to him by Siver to in their fight, he won, but it was Sivers first fight. Siver was able to take him down. Frankie slammed him and made it look easy in their last fight. I think Guida can take him down and win a decision lol

    You gotta wonder how much Grey has been shying away from his wrestling training and focusing on boxing, Frankie looked like the man when they locked up in their last fight which is the total opposite from when they fought the 1st time.

    Y'all are talking like Pettis offered NO resistance from the bottom and Clay just laid there. Jesus Christ, Pettis was working his ass off from the bottom. Cla couldn't do anything because Pettis was throwing sub attempt after sub attempt with some wicked wrist control. For fuck sakes guys, at least understand what you're watching.

    You do know that half guard isn't considered advancing positions in grappling

    Guys, come on now.. look, as I stated in another Thread I really wanted Pettis to win, I've been a fan of his since his first fight in the WEC. But Clay put together a great game plan with his coaches to beat pettis. Clay 99% of the time he gives us fight of the night proformace or pretty close to. Clay tried to pass but could not, that was really all he could do. Pettis just had to many tools on the feet or on the ground. Hell I feel pettis was the one that came closest to finishing the fight. Clay is so close to a title shot and disnt want to do anything to mess that up, and I dont blame him. Hell most of on the fourms would have done the same if we were in clay's shoes.

    FightMetric: Guida vs. Pettis Official UFC Statistics

    Clay threw more strikes, dictated pace, and most definitely did not "just lay there" or dry hump. How anyone can watch that fight and complain about boredom is beyond me.

    Pettis will be back in a big way...better to get humbled by Clay first than Gray or Frankie.

    As for Guida challenging for the title, sucks to be him. Gray, Frankie, and Miller are just too good for him to beat with his current level of striking and jits. Still love the guy.

    I think the complaint is actually pointed out in that report. Last page. Performance rating 40 for Guida and 34 for Pettis out of 100. That is what people are really complaining about.

    One guy trying to get off and can't because the other guy is preventing him from what he wants to do by striking slightly more and dictating the action.

    Neither guy was close to finishing the fight on the feet or on the ground. After the fight it was hard to tell either guy was actually in a fight. I know both guys definitely had sparring sessions in the last week that were tougher on their bodies than that fight.

    But that' how it happens sometimes. Guida had a better gameplan and executed better. It's Guida's bread and butter.
