KENNY FLORIAN SENDS A TON OF TWEETS TO DEFEND CLAY GUIDA'S "EXCELLENT" GAME PLAN

"Guida couldn't go toe to toe w/ Gray. That would've been stupid & he prob would've got ko'ed. His gameplan was still excellent." -Kenny Florian, I wouldn't call that excellent.

"Guida started using footwork very well in his fight w/ Maynard because he was striking & moving. By the end it was only moving, no striking... Maynard tried to attack & go forward by the end of the fight. That's why Maynard got the win. Close fight but not enough action from Clay." -Kenny Florian

"The amount of people who know about fighting without ever preparing for a fight let alone a fight is amazing. Millions of experts... I was better off eating potato chips, drinking beers & getting a laptop. So many years wasted fighting/training. Hahaha" -Kenny Florian, I guess people can't commentate on an absolutely horrible fight unless they have prepared for a fight. Okay. Guy.

"U can criticize a fighter on whether he is entertaining or not but a fighter also needs to fight to win... Fans won't be there to provide the money to them or their family if they lose or get cut. Obviously it is best to entertain but u can only use the weapons u have. Fighting to win vs fighting to entertain is always gonna be a problem." -Kenny Florian, I wouldn't call what Guida did as "fighting to win" either.

"Thats why current/future fighters & coaches should work towards having a skill set that is not only "well rounded" but dangerous everywhere. Can't tell someone to pull the trigger if they don't have a gun. They need to work with what they have to give them the win... Fighters are starting MMA late, coming from specific backgrounds where they may be forced to focus on certain strengths to win fights." -Kenny Florian

"Maynard is a great fighter but must remember the game plan he used against me to win. Run for 4min & take me down at end of the rnd to win." -Kenny Florian, hmm.

"I never hated Maynard for it. He used his strengths & strategy to win. It's a sport. He was better man that night... My point was not make an excuse for losing to but to show that a conservative strategy has been used by Gray to win in the past" -Kenny Florian

"Coach's job is to make sure their fighters win & that they are safe. They must use a fighter's current skill set to do that... Re: Jackson/Winkeljohn, they are producing top talent. Some fighters will have exciting styles, some will not. Jones, Swanson etc... A given strategy or style of fighting is all based on what weapons/assets they have to work with... " -Kenny Florian
