Jeremy Stephens vs. Daniel Downes
Tony Ferguson vs. Ramsey Nijem

Anthony Pettis (who did that flying kick off the fence) is against the cavemen with long hair Clay Guida. Who you guys picking to win? I think the winner gets a shot at the lightweight title next.
Gotta run, when I get back I'll edit to make better thread :P
Poor Anthony Pettis. Dude got Guida'd.
I like this new style of lay and pray even less than the old static style.
X2 I was bummed...and bored.

As far as Guida v Pettis, Pettis is a more interesting fighter, but I love Guida's seemingly always-positive attitude. And he has energy for days.
I've been wandering how long it'd take before people started noticing that Guida's become a boring fighter. His last 3 or 4 fights have been like that. He's been riding his reputation for exciting fights for a long time now without delivering.
Heh, he must be training under Greg Jackson lol. *checks wiki* Well I'll be damned...
The Pettis fight was weird. I'd have to look back at it again. But if I remember right, I kind of felt he should have won at least a round maybe 2. It's kind of sad that he attacked so much off his back, and Guida didn't do much of anything except defend, but because he was on top he was getting the rounds. I mean that's just odd to me.
I was kind of disappointed that Chuck didn't seem to learn anything from the Tony fight. He still has problems hitting moving targets, and he didn't go for takedowns like his corner was telling him to.
Am I the only one who thinks Junior was mostly useless in the corner throughout the season?

But throwing up repeated failed submissions attempts while your opponent holds you in place and occasionally hits you should not be get you a round. And it's not like this is a new development. If you spend the fight on your back and don't sub your opponent, then you're know you're going to lose. Pettis was a better striker, and would have been better served tying Guida up and waiting for the stand-up. Because Pettis was so active, it let Guida stay on top longer then the ref would have allowed otherwise.
