Both men are coming off of losses against the divisions top two Benson Henderson & Frankie Edgar. Maynard lost via TKO in his showdown with Edgar at UFC 136 this past October, Guida lost via unanimous decision in one of the best fights of the year at the UFC on Fox show last November.

Both fighters have a wrestling base, Maynard recently has been using his to keep the fight standing whereas Guida looks to take the fight to the ground and grind out victories.

Maynard moved camps leaving Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas and has trained with Nova Uniao in Brazil before settling in California with AKA.

Anything can happen in MMA, but is this line set right?
