    guida all the way baby!

  • fanoftna33 says:

    Florian will have something to prove here, Kenny by tko round 2.

  • gy614x says:

    Well Kenny’s not gonna knock Guida out, actually maybe i should say he has a very small chance of it, best bet is a submission or grinding out a decision which will also be tough, but hes not gonna take Guida down either lol.

    Guida by unanimous/split decision

  • xtreme_machine says:

    do you guys think that Eddie Alvarez has a chance at beating BJ Penn

    because i saw him at Bully Beatdown and he his a big 155er

    with good stand up and great submissions

    xtreme_machine apparently took over for ozz the powerful as ruler of the comment section.

  • shotokai_ says:

    Yeah where is Ozz these days? He (deservedly) got a few critical remarks about his excessive commenting and then he vanished. I miss reading what his opinion is on every single tiny aspect of MMA, 19 times a day.

    “do you guys think that Eddie Alvarez has a chance at beating BJ Penn”

    No. In fact I think BJ is a horrible match up for him. But thats true for almost anyone….

    Kenny by TKO(He finishes fights remember)

  • Angry Mike says:

    I’m taking Florian on this one. Guida’s motor runs at high speed for all three rounds, but Florian’s conditioning is as good, and his striking is better. If Guida gets it to the ground, Florian’s bjj is better than old style gnp.

  • Guida’s best trait, his cardio, won’t win him this fight.

    Florian takes this one home easily.

    Alvarez is getting all the talk right now but I still think Aoki is the better fighter out of those two — and neither of them matches up well with BJ.

    I think BJ’s toughest match right now would be Hellboy – just because of his speed and unpredictable style.

  • Bullylover says:

    this fight looks like its going to be a chess match.guida has hulk like cardio and his wrestling stuffs anybody’s jit’s. However his boxing is poor at best. Kenny has sick muay thai with very slick submission skills. I believe this might be the second time we see clay get submitted. I see a submission in the 2nd via rear-naked choke for kenny.I do think this is going to be a very competitive fight.
