Dana White: "That Fight F***ing Sucked" | UFC NEWS

“The fight sucked. I don’t know how to expand on it anymore. I don’t think that was a split decision at all. 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.”

UFC president Dana White discussed last nights main event at the UFC on FX 4 post-fight press conference and he was not happy with it.

For the better part of 5 rounds Clay Guida used a fast paced circling gameplan to keep Maynard off him and it made for a very lackluster main event that sent the crowd in attendance on fire with boo’s.

  1. Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

    I agree with Dana it wasnt even split decision. All guida did was run he didnt even land any significant strikes. For fans who think Guida had great foot work thats not called food work its called pussy running.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      It was great footwork. He created good angles and made Grey miss, BUT he didn’t do anything with the movement. He just danced and jabbed. When Grey gave him his chin and Guide didn’t step in and knock him out,,,, now that was enough to lose…

      • James says:

        Wrestlerbitch… Shouldn’t you be backing ur boy clay up. After all you claim about training at the same gym and all!! Gay ass.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Is this you wax-boy James Leonard??? Have you come out of the closet yet. Dude, waxing your eyebrows = homosexual!! I love Clay, but he didn’t fight. It is what it is…just like you are a homosexual, oh and if you must know I workout at many gyms!!! So what gym did you say you work out at in Tempe??? I’ll look you up when I’m in town, but please don’t wear those pajama jeans you usually wear. They are really fabulous like your waxed face…

        • Mike cannon jr. says:

          Damn!!.. I agree with each and every one of all of u guyzez points except the homo cracks..( pun intended) lol…. I blame crooked boxing judges for crooked mma decisions.. Wasn’t even close.. Guida ran so much.. I think Maynard shoulda got 2 point rounds.. Lmao.. He was the person in the ring that engaged…( . I hate what I saw… No lol

        • WrestlingRules says:

          WTHell Old Man Mike…are you fuckin’ sick or something…You’re usually raging on here about how much wrestling sucks and how much I suck and such. NOW your agreeing?? Dude, I’m beginning to worry about you….rofl…..btw; WRESTLING RULES MMA….just sayin’

        • James says:

          Calling me gay when your on here talkin about “I love clay” you fuckers at Jackson’s are either runnin or Layin on dudes like some fags…

        • WrestlingRules says:

          @James….What is wrong with love?? I love planting dudes and elbowing them, I love taking showers, I love beating your ass on this forum. And I will love beating your ass in the gym…So what is that gym again in Tempe?? Oh and I love butterflies and long walks in the forest and I love fighting…The only thing I don’t are guys that wax their eyebrows. Guys like that just plain give me the willies…
          Dude I am actually beginning to like your fight, because you haven’t backed down. Maybe you are the ONE guy that waxes his eyebrows that ISN’T a homosexual….I guess it could be….I still want to fight you…

        • Kimo says:

          You love beating??? does it spew onto the mat when you do? and you beat in the forest? with all the birds watching? wrestling sucks by the way. and you probably do too. at least thats what your dad said.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Huh? Wha? are you trying to say you are a masterbater?? OK fine….Knock yourself out Kimo… Just get away….your a bit creepy…

        • Super Jitz Man says:

          I love shitting on wrestlers with jitz <3

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I love feeding elbows to jitz boys on their backs.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          And I love getting jitz on my face! yummy.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Helllloooooo coward. how you been tough guy???

        • WrestlingRules says:

          More jitz! More jitz! Now!

        • K2 says:

          lol Homo’s give him willies…. lol

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        “pussy running” is exactly what Clay did just like Condit in Diaz fight. Same boring ass Greg jackson bullshit. Greg Jackson is hell bent on taking the “fighting” out of MMA

        • WrestlingRules says:

          That was great footwork by Guida he just didn’t do anything with it. If he would have used those angles to throw combos, we would of thought it was great!! Give him more time to add boxing to that and he’ll be a force. Give the guy a break…

        • Rodriguez says:

          Agreed! H

        • kaipo113 says:

          Exactly! Greg Jackson is single-handedly ruining MMA! His strategies might win lackluster decisions… but they are taking the excitement/entertainment out of MMA. Bring back Pride yellow cards and purse reductions for failure to engage!!!!!

  2. Hiiipower716 says:

    That fight was shitty…never seen gray that mad…he was fucking pissed

  3. LAME says:

    LOL what about Condit? Dana didnt bitch at him.

    • Brend0magic says:

      Condit actually landed strikes while moving and creating angles, Guida didn’t do shit with it….

      • Your mom says:

        How did grays nose get bloodied up if clay didn’t do anything clay landed more than people are saying and stunned Maynard with the head kick in the fifth Maynard didn’t do shit either he just whined like a little bitch. Maynard just wanted clay to fight his fight. I bet clay landed far more strikes but I haven’t seen the stats yet

        • says differently says:

          and I trust them more than I trust your biased viewing. MMA coaches, fighters, and organizations trust them too.

        • your mom says:

          I’m not really a fan of either fighter I just think the fight was a little closer than people are saying. Fight metric said 49 to 45 so i was wrong thinking that guida landed more significant strikes but still pretty even.

        • Dad says:

          Moms always have a hard time admitting when they’re wrong…excuses, excuses…

        • Shaun says:

          Clay Guida USED to be pretty tough. Everyone get’s scared, but not everyone is a fighter. That was bitch shit on his part. Pussyfooting is more what you were looking for. Homeboy gave him his chin and took 3 or 4 SOLID shots, turned around stuffed a double leg, then grabbed that fool up and said come to daddy and stop bein a bitch. Gray Maynard is a sav, PERIOD. ALWAYS HAS BEEN. The ONLY good thing Guida did in that fight was shake that submission. He lost all his fan base doing that. AND TOTALLY DISRESPECTED THE PANTERA SONG HE CAME OUT TO. Fuck Clay Guida in the neck.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      The reason Dana didn’t yell at Condit is because he hates Diaz just like he use to hate Tito. What’s ok for Condit is not ok for Clay. Although IMO they both lost bigtime and should be disgraced at their performances. If UFC or MMA continues down this bullshit “track meet” style of pointfighting the fans will go away in droves that is why Dana is pissed. Greg Jackson is ruining MMA worse than Jon “lay n pray” Fitch. At least with Fitch his career is all but over whereas Greg Jackson will continue to teach his fighters to be cowards for as long as the UFC and rest of MMA world puts up with it

  4. stephen riddle says:

    Maynard probly popped a blood vessel rotf!

  5. Dee says:

    That fight sucked. I can’t erase the image of Guida running around with horrible rhythm and goofy footwork. He should be ashamed of himself. He should be tested because I swore up and down that he was on crack last night. Greg Jackson is ruining the UFC (notice I didn’t say MMA) with his so called game plans.

  6. maurice says:

    yea guida did land strikes and it was a close fight. but he ran and all his strikes aside from the 5th round headkick, had nothing behind them. EVERYTIME gray landed a punch, guida would kick his running into high gear. its safe to say..guida and starnes both shit there pants in front of there enemy in the cage. diaz vs condit doesnt compare to that disturbing performance from guida.

    heres my top 3 most boring/hated matches
    1 phil davis vs rashad evans
    2 gray vs bitch ass guida. idk…watching gray pop a vessel and chase guida was entertaining. lol
    3 …any jon fitch victory………god he fucking sucks!!

    • A.James says:

      I agree with this statement. Now bring on the Penn!

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      one thing is for sure you are not alone 99.9999% of all MMA fans think Fitch sucks ass but what Guida did last nite should be a one-way ticket to the minors

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Your delusional. MOST real mma fans know how good Fitch is and love to watch his dominance in the cage. He is ONE of the GREATEST WW of ALL TIME second ONLY to GSP.

        • ..... says:

          So if I fought you and laid on top of you the entire time, you would think I was good?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I’ll only respond if you give me a name!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I just want you to lay on top of me. I don’t really need to know your name. I know you’re good, dude! Loving it!

        • James says:

          Disagree. MMA is about finishing guys or displaying your martial arts prowess. Jon’s top control is incredible but his inability to switch positioning is stupid. And if you or any fan enjoys Jon’s “Dominance” in the cage then i suggest you watch gay porn since it’s basically the same thing.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I like it, you FINALLY have a relevant statement that is challenging my opinions. I’m impressed. Your point is correct Fitch does completely dominate these bitches and doesnt do much gnp. Never said he did, he is just the best at top control second only to GSP perhaps. But then you go to your favorite place again, the gutter. I actually have never seen homosexual pornography so not sure what you are saying, b ut my guess is you know all about that stuff so I’ll just leave it at that. Dude just admit that you are a homosexual. And how are the eyebrows looking these days? I’ll make it to Tempe soon and so what gym are you at?? I have hope for you that you will give up that homosexual lifestyle you have been engaging in. I’ll light a candle for you…

        • dogfart says:

          second only to gsp at laying on a mother fucker.
          theres one thing being good at wrestling and i agree it is probably one of the most important aspects of the sport but you should be doing something with it, not just laying on someone untill they are so exhausted that they cant push you off and yet you still dont capitalise and finish the tired opponent

          just my take on it

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You know, you make great points and I really don’t have any argument with you….Call it boring, call it weak ineffective, say you don’t like it or you believe guys should finish, whatever. But what I am saying is that if Fitch can take a fighter down and that fighter IS NOT good enough to get up and be totally controlled by Fitch then why are people mad at Fitch???? You should be mad at that weak ass fighter who WASN”T good enough to prevent it. It just seems so simple to me…Not sure why most people on here don’t see it that way…??????

          BTW: I really like your name dogfart, it sounds like a badass wrestler’s nickname or something!! Unless of course you mean that I AM a dogfart and then I will just say..Thanks, I like it!!

    • Nick says:

      I bet you haven’t seen Starnes vs. Quarry

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Maurice you the man. noone has ever described Jon Fitch any better than you

    • your mom says:

      I like bj but i do remember fitch doing some pretty devastating ground and pound in the later rounds when him and bj fought. no one can deny that, bj owned the first part of that fight and fitch owned the last part. so if fitch fucking sucks thats kind of an insult to some of his opponents

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        Fitch had 30lbs on BJ at fight time and still lost 2 rounds. Fitch lost when he fought anyone his own size earlier in his career. Being the beszt weight cutter in MMA doesn’t mean he is a great fighter. If UFC implemented next day weigh ins Fitch would lose every fight

  7. ryan kelly says:

    i didnt know it was americas top dancer so fucking retarded i cant stand guida that was the most retarded thing i ever seen in the ufc and the fucking retarded look on his face like he was winning the fight ? and 5 rounds of that garbage wow !!!! guida should be fired if he does that again … he was just scared of maynords power he didnt want to get hit by those bombs what a moron !!!! the worst part is that people was cheering guida on !!!! fucking ridiculous

    • Nick says:

      So if your a strong wrestler known for Cardio back peddling and getting out of the way trying to tier out your opponet makes some one suck now in days but the rope-a-dope was just fine and skilled boxing when the greatest boxer of all time did it makes perfect sence oh and you stand and take a couple shoots to the face see if you just stand in trade.

      • Grammar Nazi says:

        *you’re…. improper capitalization of “cardio”…. *tire…. now a days…. *sense…. *shots…. *and…. Your sentence was a run on. And as far as taking shots to the face, I’ve been hit by a 290lb man on roids; I stood and traded.

      • James says:

        Simply because it’s boxing; That’s why. Unlike Boxing, MMA has a preference for Aggressiveness, as seen in their scoring categories.

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        Ali never ran away but youy wouldn’t know that because you weren’t born yet. Ali covered up and used the ropes to lean on but never ranaway. Guida is the worst disgrace for a fighter since Condit ran for 25 minutes from Diaz

  8. rangerdanger says:

    I enjoyed that fight but-I have never felt frustrated like that before during a fight. I liked Guida’s full “full body dry heave” type gameplan. But I was frustrated because I think he could have used those angles to plant leather on Maynards face and I bet he could have gotten a TKO at some point. If Pillow hands Edgar can TKO Maynard so can Guida. That is the frustrating part. He could have landed enough to get a TKO I think.

    I know I know… Gray let him have three free hits to the face and he could not even daze him, but I think Guida could have done that about 100 times during that fight but did not pull the trigger.

    But I still enjoyed it. Gray has some balls to let somebody hit him in the face and give them a TD like he did.

    I was just kind of like…”wtf” for a lot of the fight.

  9. Dana's PR rep says:

    “Dana, your fans are starting to hate you because you are making comments strictly based off emotions… are my suggestions, wait for your blood to boil down prior to making ignorant comments…fans agree, the fight was worthless, Clay ran a ton; however, this doesn’t mean it wasn’t a close fight…don’t say Clay won easily just because the fight wasn’t entertaining…your fans are smarter than that, Dana”

    • bxer says:

      It was not a close fight dummy, the judges score very simple,aggression and octagon control are added to the striking,maybe they landed same amount of punches,but running like a bitch will not make you any points,that was little be more boring than two wrestlers,what fucking part of contact sport you and all Jackson fighters don’t understand?

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Dana was 100% on the money “that fight sucked” and Guida just ruined his career in UFC. Greg jackson should be banned from all UFC events

    • dogfart says:

      dana has always given is opinion openly, hes an mma fan and loves a fight. this is why hes the face of ufc.

      hes entitled to his opinion and i dont think anyone would dissagree
      i think once clay reviews the tape he will be embarrassed and will realise that he danced too much and didnt take advantage of his speed and footwork

      so many times he had clay confused and frustrated and didnt nothing with it but feint and feint the feint he feinted lol.

      way happened to the all out smash fests were used too

  10. koolg says:

    clay is the newest member of the ufc track team.

    • who else says:

      would be on that team? lol.

      • Tyler says:

        Condit plays in the Off Season. Look at how he’s running from everyone in the Welterweight division right now by waiting for GSP. Waiting a couple months is one thing, but what he’s doing now is money grubbing and a disgrace to the sport. I don’t see him standing a chance trying to score points with GSP if he’s gonna try and pull what he did against Diaz. No one out points the point man. And I’m in agreement with a lot of people. Greg Jackson’s “camp” is a joke right now.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      You mean the newest member of the Greg jackson track team

  11. Nick says:

    See make him tie his hair back and he can’t fight

  12. jo0nes says:

    thxx dana idiot where were you ad your mouth for diaz vs condit??

  13. some dude says:

    I blame Craig Jackson hes ruined great fighters reps by turning warriors into bitches gsp guida condit and even Jones is doing it its bullshit Craig Jackson is no good for mma we want fights not marathons.

  14. Steve says:

    I’ve always liked Guida but Jackson gave him bad advice for this fight…a theme from his camp. Guida has always banged. Lost respect for him in this fight.

  15. Unarmed Spectator says:

    You wanna know what I think. I think it doesn’t matter what I think. Although Guida sucked!!! The UFC put that fight as the Main Event because it was supposed to be a great match up. Would’ve rather watched f**ken P90X reruns.

  16. some dude says:

    I meant Greg Jackson and if you dont want to hear what people think then dont reaf and dont respond people just want to have real conversations about mma thats what this site is for.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      We KNEW what you meant. Just having a little fun at your expense…Don’t take this so serious have a sense of humor about it all. Thicken your skin up a bit and enjoy bro….Then we can have a conversation. Me personally, I think your opinion about Jackson’s gym is wrong. They train world champions there whether you like them or not….

  17. KIDD433 says:

    This was worse than when guida fitched the shit out of Anthony Pettis…typical Greg jackson coached fight.That asshole has ruined enough fighters styles.

  18. some dude says:

    Greg Jackson does make champs but he also makes them boaring to watch.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      So you think Jones is boring to watch. Cerrone is boring to watch, Dodson is boring to watch. Sanchez is boring to watch. Guillard ( before he left) is boring to watch. GSP is boring to watch…….

      • A.James says:

        GSP IS boring to watch!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I don’t agree. He beats up everybody he faces. How is that boring?

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          GSP has become one of the most boring fighters in all MMA and that is FACT. I predict not only will GSP PUSSY OUT and not fight A.Silva but he will retire before he has to fight any of the “NEW BREED” of killers in UFC. yes i know he has a pass with Rory which is bullshit (Fitch/Koscheck allover again) GSP has lost his nerve and iscared to fight now

  19. nate says:

    Looks like Condit’s fighting style is becoming more popular… Greg Jackson is training a bunch of track stars.. lol his fighters have run more miles in the octagon than Usain Bolt on the track.

  20. I fucking hate Greg Jackson fighters. They take the “fight” out of fighting. MMA is about fighting and destroying your opponent efficiently, and we got guys from his camp trying to win off points. Get real, fuck Greg Jackson Camp!

  21. Erik says:

    I agree that the fight sucked… but this style of fighting was brought out by the one and only Frankie Edgar. Now I know I will get flamed for saying it, but that’s what Frankie does… dance, run and jab… and run some more. Once he gets grabbed it gets more entertaining, but I was seriously pissed watching him run, run, run from BJ. The Condit fight was the same. Fitch shouldn’t be brought up in this thread, because that is a totally different style of boring, not willing to engage style of fighting. Hell, even cro-cop has put on his running shoes on occasion.

  22. Erik Travis says:

    I agree that the fight sucked… but this style of fighting was influenced by Frankie Edgar. Now I know I will get flamed for saying it, but that’s what Frankie does… dance, run and jab… and run some more. Once he gets nabbed it gets more entertaining, but I was seriously pissed watching him run from BJ. The Condit fight was the same. Fitch shouldn’t be brought up in this thread, because that is a totally different style of fighting. Hell, even Cro-Cop has put on his running shoes on occasion. But what Guida did, was try to mimic Edgar.

    • Rodriguez says:

      Just remember that Edgar is a small fighter compared to those big guys, and if you knew anything about boxing, you would understand that Edgar uses a method where he gets inside and attacks and steps out. He always out strikes his opponents and messes up their faces. Bj lost both times, because he was out boxed, and that is what Edgar can do!

  23. Radge says:

    I think fighters need to remember that putting on entertaining fights is important, I mean although mma is a sport and to win is first and foremost at the end of the day it is entertainment and if the UFC wants us to front up hard earned cash for pay per views then the less fights like this or the Fitch style lay n pray fights the better. Unfortunatley the Jackson game plans will win fighters the decision 90% of the time just as lying on top of a guy will do.

  24. Rodriguez says:

    I don’t fully believe it’s all Jackson’s fault, I mean fighters should be able to use the technique of counter punching and slipping punches better. Guida just screwed up by not doing it effectively, and taking the running away to far. He had good footwork and a good game plan, he just didn’t follow up on it. He should have countered and kicked the legs more. I still enjoyed the fight, watching Guida use new technique and Maynard attack like a beat, I just wish Guida wasn’t out struck by 10% and used his skills a bit better.

  25. KIDD433 says:

    Bottom line,Fuck Greg Jackson and his faggot track team.If i was running the UFC,Guida would be fired,second time bitching out,remember how he FITCHED Pettis.Second Greg Jackson’s camp would be banned from the UFC along with anybody that FITCHED a victory on my watch.Joe Silva would be fired.And last,Id stop letting Jon Jones bully these much smaller fighters at 205,make him fight at HW with guys at least close to his fucken size

  26. mike says:

    Hopefully fighter take notice. Guida vs maynard, rampage vs machida, its the fighter who is chasing down the other that is winning the fight
