Hands down, Guida's grappling skills are visibly improved since he joined Greg Jackson's camp toward the end of 2009 (and since his loss to Kenny Florian). You can see it in his most recent fights:
- UFC 125 (January 1, 2011): Def. Takanomi Gomi (guillotine from mounted position).
- UFC 117 (August 7, 2010): Def. Rafael Dos Anjos (submission due to injured jaw).
- UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones (March 21, 2010): Def. Shannon Gugerty (triangle).
With his newer submission game, Guida's now a bigger threat and even more entertaining for us. All he needs now is a mullet or some outrageous mutton chops.
