Coming into the fight, oddsmakers have instilled Maynard as a heavy favorite over Guida ahead of their June showdown.
According to Nick Kalikas from BetonFighting.com, Maynard comes in as a 3 to 1 favorite over Guida. Maynard currently sits as a -305 favorite while the comeback on Guida as the underdog is +235.
Both Maynard and Guida are coming off losses, albeit against the top two fighters in the division.
Maynard lost by TKO to then UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 136 last October, while Guida was defeated by current UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson late last year as well.
Both Maynard and Guida come from wrestling backgrounds, so it will be interesting to see where these two fighters end up once the fight starts on June 22.
Also interesting to note, the Maynard vs. Guida fight will be a five round main event, so cardio can always be an interesting factor in a fight like this. Guida of course is known for his intense pace and cardio, but Maynard has gone 5 rounds more recently.
The two lightweights meet in the main event of UFC on FX 4 in June.
