I think, first off, Guida shouldn't be completely dogged here as an opponent; A guy with one fight going against a guy with over 30 is going to be a tough fight. Secondly, the ring had a big impact and I agree with the sentiment that Lashley would have done better in a cage - both for the takedowns and GNP. As for the conditioning, the wrestling clinch is probably the most draining thing you can do in MMA, and Lashley was pushing in that position for a while, of course he's going to gas. Another positive is his hands were faster than I expected, when he let them loose, though still sloppy. The negatives are he needs to diversify his takedowns (throw in some leg trips), and keep his head either looking up to the sky or buried in his opponents sternum when shooting in. Too often did he leave his head in a bad place when attempting the takedown. His GNP was weak and he needs better positioning on the ground. Clearly he has heavy hips, he needs to feel more confident in passing and making a move. Overall a very good victory considering the ring and the experience of his opponent. At this stage, I don't think it's wise matching Lashley up with anyone beyond a handful of fights.
