Guida talked about the contrast between his fighting style and Maynard's to MMA Fighting's Luke Thomas:
"I think mine (wrestling attack) is a little bit more in your face, a little bit more wild attack and his is conservative -- but very high level. He gets a blast double legs. He has a very good single leg and he doesn't miss takedowns very much. When he shoots, he puts you on your butt. I think he's gonna come out and try and knock my head off and he's gonna try to put us on our back."
Guida, who could easily cut down to 145lbs and make Featherweight, is going to give up a good bit of size to Maynard and both fighters are coming off losses. Guida lost a decision to current UFC LW champ Ben Henderson at UFC on Fox 1 in November, 2011. Maynard is coming back from two-straight unsuccessful shots at the title, first drawing Frankie Edgar at UFC 125 in January 2011 and then losing to Edgar by KO at UFC 136 in October of last year.
