UFC On FX 4 Results: Maynard Vs. Guida Fightmetric Stats

Guida-maynard_fight_metric_medium

Tonight's UFC on FX 4 main event between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida ended in a split decision, and it was Maynard that came out on top. Was that a just decision? I personally had Maynard winning 48-47, so I'd say yes. But a lot of respected media folks (including our esteemed Brent Brookhouse) gave it to Guida. So he'd probably say no. The fight was clearly close, and our friends at Fightmetric have compiled their stats for the bout. You can interpret them however you want (and I'm sure different people will interpret them in different ways).

I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but let's get real here. Stats-wise, is the ugliest UFC main event fight ever? Here's what UFC president Dana White had to say about the fight at the post-fight press conference:

I think Gray Maynard won that fight easily. Nobody can win or lose a fight when the guy is running around in circles. He was literally running. I had some guys who are fans on Twitter saying "Great footwork." This isn't f**kin dancing with the stars. You can't win a fight by running around in circles - that's not how fights are won."

Do you agree with Dana? Or do you think Clay pulled it out?
