Round 1: Diego 10-8 Round 2: Guida 10-9 Round 3: Guide 10-9 (barely) If you’re scoring by overall damage and significant strikes, Diego clearly won this fight. I don’t know how Guida survived that onslaught in the first round. Log in to Reply micah June 21, 2009 i thought it was a draw but can see why they gave it to Sanchez was very close all these people that say Guida is boring and dont like to see people fight on the ground need to go back to watching boxing and stop commenting on mma fights Log in to Reply PitFighterZ June 21, 2009 Well, that only proves what I said in the earlier posts, none of them really has knock out power. That said, Sanchez won the fight by far. He won the first round hands down, he won the second round (even been on his back he was definitely the agressor and caused tremendous damage with the elbows to the head, while Guida did nothing on top), and the third round was basically a draw. I don’t think it was a close fight because Guida didn’t do anything at all to put Diego in risk, while Diego massacred Guida in the first round, took off his scalp in the second, and rested in the third. If Sanchez had used his head kicks more often, nobody would be even discussing this result. Total domination. @ Okami: Agreed. FNA knows shit about MMA or anything else for that matter! Log in to Reply Fkin Hologram June 21, 2009 diego putting in work in first min of the first round boy! Log in to Reply Niv June 21, 2009 Man I love watching both of these guys fight. I think it’s unfair to say Sanchez lacks ko power because he couldn’t ko Guida. Guida is seriously tough and that head kick he took would have ko’d almost anybody. I think people as usual are really unfair when saying Guida is using lay and pray. He uses his wrestling masterfully to set up hammer fists, elbows and punches which he utilized. Sanchez fought well throwing elbows from his back but Guida definitely took the second round. The third round surprised me a bit as Guida got the better of the standup and overall did more. This was a great fight and I’d love to watch these two guys fight another three times. The only justifiable decision for me would have been a draw based off a clear 10-8 first by Diego and two slim 10-9 rounds by Guida, either way both guys are warriors. Log in to Reply whoareyou221 June 21, 2009 Round 1: 10-9 Diego (not 10-8 cuz Guida got a takedown and was standing with him at the end.) Round 2: 10-9 Guida (Diego’s elbow strikes = cut, big deal.) Round 3: 10-10 (Diego had a good kimura and Guida had some good control towards the end, stand up was even.) Draw match. Log in to Reply St Pierre June 21, 2009 Did anybody else notice that Diego was actually getting the better in the second round with those elbows from his back??? Log in to Reply Sean Wooldridge June 21, 2009 Niv, you’re killing me. Round 1 was so not a 10-8 round it’s not even funny. Did you see what Cain Velazquez did to Cheik Kongo in R2 and R3? THOSE weren’t even 10-8s. You have to have no offense whatsoever to get 8 points in a round. It’s extremely rare. Guida definitely lost the round, but he scored a takedown and got some shots in while he was at it. Enough with the 10-8 crap! Log in to Reply ihatehaters June 21, 2009 i cant believe the idiots that dont understand diego winnin the 1st round 10-8.all u have to do is look at guidas face after that round to see mow much punishment he took.i dont like either one of these guys but since guida gave up on tryin to take him down halfway through the fight it made it a much better fight.great fight Log in to Reply DFA June 21, 2009 Anyone honestly giving this fight to Guida is a clueless Guida fanboy who must hate Diego and be incapable of unbiased thought. Guida showed great toughness and heart, but I honestly can’t justify giving a single round to him without heavy doubt. The fight could have been as one-sided as 30-26 for Diego, with Guida’s best possible scenario being a very generous draw. Log in to Reply mike June 21, 2009 amazing fight! really close, thought diego did enough to win, but very impressed with both fighters. the way clay was bobbing up and down while joe was interviewing him was insane, his conditioning is phenomenal. Log in to Reply ****_a_guida June 21, 2009 Ok Guida didn’t win a single round and I don’t get how this guy has any fans at all. All he ever does is hug like a dude who’s trying his hardest not to get his ass kicked. He even lost the 2nd round when he was on top. Sorry I don’t give any points for laying on top of a person, and neither should the judges. DAMAGE determines who wins the round, picture it like a health bar on a video game. And in case any of you Guida nut huggers didn’t notice, Guida’s hair was soaked with blood from the elbows Sanchez landed in the 2nd round, that being the round Guida supposedly won. Sanchez 30-26, first round 10-8. Log in to Reply casyboy June 21, 2009 i think diego should have to get threw gray and frankie before title shot period.. Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE June 21, 2009 If you think Guida won this fight YOURE A RETARDED PREMATURE FETUS! All Gudia did wast ake him down twice and DID NOTHING !! NO DAMAGE!! Diego cracked his face, nose and head open. He busted his face like a pinata! Look at their faces and tell me who won that fight….Guida and his gayness are not champion material…. Log in to Reply CycloneX June 21, 2009 For the post above***_a_guida …I’m a fan of Guida and I don’t see how you can judge someone whos a good fighter like Guida.Guida could have beaten Huerta and only lost by a submission last few seconds in the 3rd round.Just a tad mistake but he was leading all 3 rounds against Huerta.Guida did control the fight except for that first round attack but recovered nicely.Guida also has 5 split decisions in his record.Versatile fighter for sure.Don’t give any points for a take-down? Be 5’7″ and takedown a 5’11”..I would score for the 5’7″.Just like a 5’11 throwing haymakers would score if he connected those punches. Log in to Reply MRVIPER666 June 21, 2009 dont forget about tyson or sherk Log in to Reply zebo13 June 21, 2009 Stupid ass judge that gave it to Guida, ruined my fantasy bonus. Diego did waaaay more damage when he was on his back then Guida did on top. Great fight, I expected no less. Log in to Reply sledhead June 21, 2009 diego received a gift with that call. i thought guida had the fight. none of diego’s power shots slowed down guida. this isnt a video game, like one of the last posts says. that guy is obviously ignorant to mma. it was a good fight, could have gone either way. Log in to Reply sledhead June 21, 2009 love all these keyboard tough guys calling everyone names!! lol none of you guida haters would stand a minute in the ring so stfu already. Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE June 21, 2009 CYcloneX…ur an idiot and U just hate Diego….Guida did ZERO ****ing damage…bear huged all ****ing night..U think thats skill and balls? HELL NO….Illgive u this though, he is strong as an ox and can absorb a beating…other than that he has nothing going for him…never looks to finsih fighters, only to grab and hold and thats allhe has ever done and that is all he will ever do….see he tried to show some balls by standing with Diego on the first round and he got his nose put into his ****ing ear…so he said **** this! Time to hug myway out of it! Too bad for him it didnt work..what a LOSER…get out of the UFC please!!! Log in to Reply Niv June 21, 2009 Sean Wooldridge, I’m killing you for thinking round one was a 10-8 round for Sanchez, OK. So how did you score the bout? I don’t see why everyone here is in such a huff all the time. You give an opinion, so do I big deal. I think I clearly can justify that 10-8 is when one fighter has another badly hurt and more than once where the fight could have ended. I think the fight was very close to being stopped in the first round if Guida didn’t recover so quick from that head kick. Guida was rocked on several occasions in the beginning and hung in there but he took a beating and a half in that round. I don’t know how you justify a 10-8 round but I stand by that. I think this fight easily could have been a draw, sorry if that hurts your feelings. Log in to Reply Mag June 21, 2009 Top Fight, but it was a disgrace that that fight went to a split decision. US MMA scoring is a ****ing farce. Diego DOMINATED that fight, and should have easily won a 30-26 fight. In fact this is another fight that shows how flawed the 10-point must and US MMA scoring system is. ‘Control’ is such an absoulte bullshit criteria. Whats the point of ‘controlling’ an opponent if wherever you control them to you’re getting beaten up??… like last night. Clay had nothing in standing up or on the ground even though he got to ‘choose’ where the fight went. Pathetic. He got beaten up badly standing up and on the ground, regardless of being ‘on top’. This isn’t ****ing Collegiate wrestling, its MMA FFS!!! You can’t just take someone down – to GUARD (which is a NEUTRAL POSITION) and expect to win a fight if you haven’t damaged the opponent. The fact that one judge actually gave guida the win is appalling. Get the Japanese scoring system in the UFC ASAP, its seriously becoming a joke. Great fight, but for ****s sake, change this bullshit method of judging a fight for the good of MMA. I’ve been following MMA since 1998 and had guida won it would have been the biggest robbery I’d have witnessed. Thankfully 2 judges gave Diego the nod, it’s not the judges fault, its the system that’s ****ed. Please say there are some educated fans around here that agree with me? Peace. Log in to Reply coutura June 21, 2009 diego please you need to box better why not body punches ..guida was open on the ribs i nthe first round you need more combos Log in to Reply xteban June 21, 2009 I knew Diego was gonna win Log in to Reply mymuythai June 21, 2009 Sanchez vs. Edgar next. Winner gets title shot. Log in to Reply KEYBOARD TOUGHGUY June 21, 2009 “Sledhead” is a tit. YOU obviously know shite about MMA if you think Guida won that fight. First round he blocked every one of diego’s power shots with his face. 2nd round he thought it would be a good idea to lay and pray and payed for it with his own blood being sprayed all over the mat. The third round was the closest thing you could call to an even round. Anyone (seldhead) who can’t see this is also OBVIOUSLY IGNORANT to MMA. I ain’t taking nothing away from Guida, the guy is a machine. But, he lost. So get off his nuts and accept it. Log in to Reply swilkins June 21, 2009 fu*k guida sanchez beat the shit outta him…thats word Log in to Reply Drew June 22, 2009 I’m not objecting to the Sanchez decision, but I’m not sure why everyone says Guida just lays on guys. He was working. He was throwing and landing some punches and elbows. When guys try to get up, he smothers them and tries to break their will. What do you expect the guy to do? Stand there and potentially get knocked out? He’s trying to win the fight. Log in to Reply Rugburn June 22, 2009 Its hard to see how Diego was destroying Guida if your a Guida fan watching the fight from the Guida perspective. Re-watch the fight and this time watch Diego and then tell me who won. Trust me, when I see my favorite fighters lose and re-watch it from the other guys perspective its a different fight!!! Diego clearly inflicted pain and punishment from every position!!! Log in to Reply sooooopernate June 22, 2009 It’s interesting that the one judge scored it 29-27, Joe knew that a judge might have scored the first round 10-8 sanchez. I think that’s bull though, I mean diego obviously won that round, but he got taken down and then guida was on the offensive. All three judges saw that guida won the second round. I find it very odd that two judges thought that round 3 was diegos. I mean he was getting hit with some solid shots, and he got taken down. I thought guida won that fight, it seems that the judges in the ufc really look for completely different things from one judge to the next, there really needs to be a better scoring system. Log in to Reply sledhead June 22, 2009 Diego obviously doesnt have the cardio to go 3 rounds. he looked tired the 3rd round and had no power to take out guida. no power = no respect for me. GO GUIDA!!! Log in to Reply sledhead June 22, 2009 If Guida is such a noob fighter as you all claim, then why did it take diego 3 rounds and a split decision to beat him? i guess diego isnt ready for a title shot after all. Log in to Reply Sean Wooldridge June 22, 2009 Niv, there is a criteria for scoring a 10-8 round. You can find it on a number of sites with a simple google search. I would suggest reading it before you post anything else and risk hurting someone else’s feelings as badly as you have hurt mine. Log in to Reply sledhead June 22, 2009 diego’s face was all swollen. to everyone who said that diego took no damage, i say you are completely ignorant. Log in to Reply CycloneX June 22, 2009 Sean_vance..you’re the idiot. Dumber than a sack of wet mice. A few bricks short of a full load. He smells the coffee, but he can’t find the pot. I never said Guida “Should have won” You get points for a takedown,some folks don’t think so.Never said I hate Diego.He’s good,sure.The fight good enought for a rematch.A better rematch then the other 2 fights that night.If Guida fought like Joe did (fighting a taller person)Then Guida would have won.All 3 fights that night were similar,just different game plans.5’7″s can handle more rounds than a 5’11” so the favor was in diego. 5 rounds next time !!!! Log in to Reply Niv June 22, 2009 I promise to have better opinions in the future, take care. Log in to Reply Greatwhite June 22, 2009 Guida should be nick named >> The Leech. Seeing as he’s always looking for take downs. He’s got one hell of a God awful stand up game, and he very rarely inflicts any substantial damage on just about all of his opponents. Great win Diego. Log in to Reply Keyboard Toughguy June 22, 2009 Diego’s face might have been swollen, but who has the GIF of one fighter smashing the other fighters face in with a head kick from the heavens? HAHA! WAR SANCHEZ! Guida/Maynard Snorefest ’09! Only on PPV! Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE June 22, 2009 All I ask is this..put exciting fighters with exciting fighters and boring fighters with borign fighters… Like someone suggested: Guida vs. Maynard Perfect match, who cares who wins or loses, they are so ****ing boring nobody gives a shit, they can die and nobody will miss them. Kenny vs. BJ, Kenny vs. Diego, BJ vs Diego, Huerta vs. Diego or BJ, now, this I want to see cos I know they wont be any gayness floating around…maybe with Kenny lately, but not too bad. lol THis should have NEVER been a split decision, its ridiculous ..points for take downs, so ****ing gay..only in the US ..in Japan take downs dont mean shit unless u attempt submissions or cause serious FIGHT ENDING type of damage…no little gay hammer fists once every 2 minutes. GUIDA = GAY THIS ISNT WRESTLING!! ITS NOT WWF !! ITS UFC, and u have to beat the shit out of the other person, not take him down! U cause no damage when u take someone down! GAY Log in to Reply CycloneX June 22, 2009 Mannnn..Sean_ needs a cookie…Taking down someone takes alot of work..if they so good on the ground,they should stop from being taken down.Whats A 5’11” DUDE DOING AT 156 POUNDS ?? Diego couldn’t even take Guida down.Except for that kick. Thats like Randy or Silva dropping all the way to 145..Just because you can drop alot of weigh doesn’t mean..go ahead and take all comers.”I’m 6’7″ and I’m gonna fight at 155 pounds to make some money” Well DUhhhhhhh… Gudia!!,,,don’t change anything at all.You got this far..might as well keep it up!!Maybe some kicks like cro-cop..Right at the knee and make them fight on one leg! Log in to Reply sledhead June 22, 2009 sounds like sean_vance has some GAY issues to work out!! lol just come out of the closet dude Log in to Reply jman June 23, 2009 I am a huge Guida fan but he lost all three rounds. Like someone said before where was Guida’s leg kicks! He got into a slugging match and got out slugged. Oh, and FNA should be banned from this site for his stupid round scoring! Log in to Reply Sephy June 23, 2009 Whoever thinks Guida won any rounds is full of themselves lol.. The second round Sanchez landed more blows from the bottom and Guida did jack shit, but bleed. That judge that gave Guida the fight should seek another profession.. I like them both, but Diego was clearly the winner… Log in to Reply BomberB June 24, 2009 Guida has gotta be pound 4 pound the toughest guy in the UFC? and just befode everyone goes mad i said TOUGHEST not the BEST (that would be GSP) Log in to Reply xFIGHTERx June 26, 2009 jman cracjs my shit up about FNA … amyways the fight … Diego clearly won the first round maybe not 10-8 cause of guidas take down but still diego killed him in the first. the second well i guess guida did get the take down and if dry humping a fighter for 5 rounds counts as controll he wins in that aspect too … but diego busted the shit out of his head and clearly was more agressive… tried for the kimora and almost had an arm bar… tru guida had some dece hammer fist there towrads the end but really he was trading hammer fist for elbos to the head which were more more effevtive diego 10-9 third round well this is the only round you could consider giving to guida but honestly he did very little the striking was a close call mostly just trading ounches but diego did get some head kicks not clean but still.. then diego had a rear naked truned into arm triagngle turned kimora turned arm bar guida survied the thiord round but did not win diego agaibn 10-9 soooooo thats 30-27 but def one of the best fights in a long long time props to guida lots of heart unbreakable chin but diego just out struck him and out worked him while on his back Log in to Reply xFIGHTERx June 26, 2009 sorry for my shit grammer and spelling meant 5 minutes not rounds but shit its 4 in the morning lol Log in to Reply Elmaestro June 26, 2009 Just in case you guys didnt catch it.
