Rumor: Kenny Florian vs. Clay Guida @ UFC 106

("He’s at that age where he won’t listen to a word we say. He’ll come home past midnight and tell us he was ‘out with friends.’ Which friends are these? The friends he used to have were good boys, who followed the rules. I feel like I don’t even know my own son anymore." Photo courtesy of CombatLifestyle.)

According to a tweet by Fanhouse’s Michael David Smith, Kenny Florian is likely to face off against Clay Guida at UFC 106. Sounds like logicial matchmaking to us: Florian previously expressed that he wanted to rebound from his loss to BJ Penn by fighting "someone tough" before the end of the year, while Guida once called out Ken-Flo as one of the UFC’s protected fighters. ("They hold him up on a pedestal, man, and I’m ready to kick that pedestal out from underneath him.") We wouldn’t expect the kind of once-in-a-lifetime brawl that Guida had against Diego Sanchez, but it would be a solid addition to a card that already features the heavyweight title fight between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin, and a light-heavyweight co-headliner between Tito Ortiz and Mark Coleman. So what do you think — does Florian finish this fight, or does Guida win via Clay-n-Pray?

wow why is this loser even still in the ufc? clay guida? fucking garbage fighter. the piss poor mans sean sherk.

guy has only one way he can win a fight, sit on top and hope for a decision. i don't think i've ever seen him damage anyone in any of his fights. and he ALWAYS gets fucked up standing. even when he had sanchez on his back in the second round, he was still taking more damage than he was dealing from sanchez's elbows. he has one dimension that he's not even that good at. he doesn't ground and pound, he just grounds. imagine if this guy fought edgar or maynard, or sherk even, guys who would fuck him up standing, that are too strong for him to sit on. he'll never get close to the top of the division. he's not even a top 20 lightweight. if i made a top 30 list he probably wouldn't be on it. who even cares about this boring douchebag?

he doesn't deserve to fight kenflo, fuck this guy, he'll never matter, he'll always be boring.

This matchup was written in the sky the moment BJ raised his hand3 weeks ago.

Good one thought, I don't see Kenflo finishing Guida and I don't see Guida out-wrestle Kenflo.

I want to see Kenflo elbows a lot more in that fight otherwise we might see guida raise his hand in this one.

Hope Kenflo will come back stonger.

I would think that Kenney would win this fight out of respect for skills; but, I say Guida all the way. I love the energy that he brings to the events, and He's cool as hell win or lose. Here's to the Clay and Pray. One day he'll add sick striking to his game, and he'll be The Shit!

@Art Gibs...
Die screaming in a fire.

If Huerta could finish Guida then I don't see why Kenny couldn't.

@ BadBoy2315
Well said. I think Kenny will submit Clay.
@ RickyRobbie
You're ridiculous. GSP is anything but boring. When he gets someone down, it's not to lay on them. It's to pound their freakin face and body the entire time. Ask John Fitch, BJ Penn, and Thiago Alves.

Joe Lauzon would've out-wrestled Kenny for three rounds if he had the gas tank. Guida has that gas tank.

Guida by UD.

I def never said Kenflo would win against BJ....but I am definitely rooting against him. Kenflo's great but I wouldn't mind seeing Guida Win/finish him, I highly doubt it though. Should be a good fight.
LoneWolf- August 27, 2009 at 9:31 am
It would be great if Guida didn't clay n prey, and actually finished Kenflo.....I don't see it happening but it would be
BadBoy2315- August 27, 2009 at 9:22 am
I'm surprised people are picking against Kenny. Just a few weeks ago, a lot of people were calling him the future lightweight champ.

This reminds me of the whole GSP/BJ/Kenny situation. When BJ lost to GSP, so many fans forgot how good he really is. They figured Kenny would beat him no problem.

Same scenario now with Kenny. He got beat up in his last fight, and people are forgetting that he's still the second best lightweight in the UFC, if not the world.

Does losing to BJ mean that Kenny's skills are suddenly gone? No. That would be like saying Thiago Alves' skills are gone because he got beat up by GSP.

There is no shame in losing to the best fighter in your division, especially nowadays when the five champions are head and shoulders above the rest.

Kenny wins via UD, 30-27.

you think florian could pull off a choke using guida's hair? sub of the night for sure.

but seriously, guida won a decision by the skin of his nuts over nate diaz and diaz was never in real trouble. he can take a beating and blanket his opponent. florian should be able to out-class enough to at least get the decision.
bobzemuda- August 27, 2009 at 8:56 am
That's the smell of Florian's cool tears as they trickle off his cheek to the octagon floor as Guida's hand is raised in victory.
RickyRobbie- August 27, 2009 at 8:52 am
Guida is boring but GSP is right below.

clay n pray just may go all the way if i dare say... by the bay eatin hay
Jackal- August 27, 2009 at 8:23 am
I'm tired of watching guida grind out 3 rounders, but stylistically yea it'll be good to see what florian has for him, his striking looked like crap against penn so surely we'll get to see him use more of his bjj game..

@ nut puncher, well said, sanchez couldn't finish doubtful Florian could. I could go either way with this but I think guida's athleticism will overrun kenny.
WhiteOnRice- August 27, 2009 at 8:21 am
I hope Florian destroys that caveman looking fuck. I get so pissed off watching Guida fight. He hugs and tries to hump his opponents into oblivion. I guess man-love scores points with the judges.
Art Gibs- August 27, 2009 at 8:21 am
Sick matchup? Not exactly. Guida by boring UD.
omunto- August 27, 2009 at 8:14 am
I think it'd be awesome if Guida finished Florian... cause Guida doesn't finish very often and I friggin hate Florian. The quicker that guy moves on to commentating the better.
Walrus- August 27, 2009 at 8:00 am
Sick matchup
Nut Puncher 9000- August 27, 2009 at 7:59 am
I like the matchup. I dont see Florian finishing if Sanchez couldnt but should be an entertaining fight.
MyFightWiffaCheeto- August 27, 2009 at 7:57 am
Guida's swarming style too much for Florian. I don't see Florian's BJJ doing anything to stop Guida's wrestling.

Guida via Unanimous Decision. So he'll get the next shitle tot against BJ after BJ chokes out Sanchez... Then BJ just has to choke out Maynard and/or Huerta (if he gives up the bad acting) and he'll have cleaned out the division too.
