    i think danzig will beat the hamburger smell off guida tonight. he seems like he has too smooth of a game for guida. as long as he doesn't get caught with a wild punch. but danzig has taken punches from much larger guys.
    but then again, i may be retarded

    This will be Danzigs biggest win thus far in his career. He was overmatched against Sakurai and lost a close fight to French. He was pretty impressive against Bocek but Bocek is not exactly the cream of the lw divison.

    Guida has beat top guys in Thomson and Aurelio and many thought he should have won against Griffin and Thomas.

    Either way a win for either vaults them back into contention in the weight class.

    Who do you see the winner facing next?

    If Diaz wins again in impressive fashion who should he fight next?

    Seems to me that Danzig is on a faster (harder) track than many of the other TUF guys - perhaps because he's older and more experienced. I can't imagine, for instance, seeing Nate Diaz getting a fight like this.

    PJ - you're asking about who's in line for a title shot and that's a tough one. A lot of good guys but few are believed to be as good as BJ. Although the UFC doesn't have many of the ranked 155/160 guys, they still have so many good guys. Sherk, Florian, Franca and Stevenson who have had title shots, Maynard, Griffin, Edgar & Guida who haven't (and TUF guys)

    What do you think of:
    (1) Guida/Danzig winner gets winner of Sherk/Griffin
    (2) Diaz vs Gray Maynard

    If Florian beats Stevenson he would be contender 1A and if Griffin beats Sherk he would be contender 1B. Beyond that I agree there are a ton of talented guys and it is pretty hard to say who is ahead of you.

    I did not necessarily mean who was in line for a tite shot just who they would fight next as it would be another step up. I agree though that Danzig is on a faster line to the title than Diaz because of his age. Diaz is only 23 and has a lot of room to grow, while I am sure Danzig will improve he is closer to his peak and they might as well push him now.

    If Griffin wins, give him a title shot. I think Edgar should be considered too (matches up well and I think he could do well).

    If you are going to have all the top guys enter a tournament type situation to get a title shot, you'll have no obvious contenders left.
