Gray Maynard the favorite to beat Clay Guida in UFC on FX
Gray Maynard and Clay Guida are both coming off losses last time out and will look to turn things around as they face off in the UFC on FX 4: Maynard vs. Guida lightweight bout on Friday, June 22nd, 2012. Maynard is a heavy favorite to win this fight at -345 while Guida's underdog line comes in at +275 in UFC gambling. The winner of this bout will remain as one of the top contenders in the weight class and hope for a title shot in the near future.
Gray Maynard fought for the UFC Lightweight Championship in his last bout but lost via technical knockout to Frankie Edgar in the fourth round. It was Maynard's first career loss, dropping him to 11-1-1. Maynard and Edgar had fought twice before, with Maynard holding the 1-0-1 edge. Maynard is 5-foot-8 and 155 pounds. He has two wins by knockout and eight by decision, so he's the type of guy who feels more comfortable if the fight lasts into the later rounds or goes the whole way. He had a split decision victory over Nate Diaz on January 11th, 2010, so he has proven himself against top fighters.
Clay Guida is 29-7 in his career and is ranked as the No. 7 lightweight fighter. He dropped a unanimous decision to Ben Henderson in his previous fight in a UFC Lightweight title eliminator. Guida had won four straight fights previously, including one over Anthony Pettis, but the loss to Henderson has pushed him back down the contention ladder. He will need to pull an upset here to get back into the title conversation. Guida is 5-feet-7 and weighs 156 pounds, so neither fighter has a big size or weight advantage.
Maynard is in the discussion as one of the top lightweights but will need to work his way back up to get a title shot. He is a sizable favorite to win this fight against Guida and get back into the conversation in UFC gambling.
