    Mendes is a faster more athletic Maynard with better striking, cardio, and submissions.

    i doubt anyone has a bigger gas tank than guida. ben henderson might be the only guy. chads a great fighter. i'm not saying he sucks. yes chad has the talent to fight guys in his own weight class but guida's going to have at leat 15 pounds on him. guida is bigger and knows how to use that to his advantage. the maynard fight is a bad example.

    There's no bloomin' way that Guida is bigger than Mendes in the cage. Mendes is an inch shorter and far more muscled.

    It's hard for me to imagine a path to victory for Guida. Mendes has every possible advantage, other than cardio. He's also got 100% career takedown defense, and I don't see Guida being the guy to drag him down.

    I think you side-stepping one of his other points. Guida is definitely not as big as Mendes is. Guida looks like he could make 135 at the weigh-ins. Mendes is clearly the bigger fighter.

    I'll take the bet Greezy. Onion's too damn slow. I'll stick to the nongay sig if you are willing to do the same

    Darn, really? I think this is a pretty safe bet if you are picking Mendes.

    As fun as it would be to give greezy some minority gay love in his sig, I usually don't roll that way.

    Fair point.

    But back to Mendes, I think he might actually cut around from 160-165, if not higher. Guida looked like he didn't need to cut for 145, he just cleaned up his diet.
