I like this guy. He doesen't give up, has underrated standup and survivability and of course, some outstanding wrestling and submission defense.
All this talk about Urija Faber Urijah Faber. Personally, I don't like Faber. Guida fought a helluva fight against Tyson Griffin and some say (including me) shouldve won that decision, but it was close enough where I respect why Tyson got it. Now he's beaten Aurelio.
So now what for Clay Guida? I think he's an up and comer and I'd love to see him shut someone like Faber up. I think he's ready right now for a title shot.
If he's small enough to cut down to 145... Then I think that would make an exciting fight
I would like to see him fight Huerta myself
Underrated standup? I thought his standup was horrible against Aurelio. He looked EXACTLY like Josh Koscheck. Working in one-two combos with a huge overhand right that never landed once. When he did well, he was getting inside quickly and throwing a hook. He needs to do that a lot more, none of the 1-2 combos from the outside.
He's had much better standup bouts.
Clay is becoming a pretty good fighter....... and I also believe he should of got the decision over Tyson but it was very close....... Guida vs. Huerta would be a great fight.... I would also like to see him vs. Stevenson.
God I love the Light weight division..... so many good fights that could possibly happen.
Clay is 5-5 in his last 10 fights and I think he needs to get into a winning streak (4 fights) before he can be considered a contender.
IMO he doesn't deserve to fight top 5 fighters in the LW division right now, despite how much grit he possesses
guida vs. fisher in the near future?, that would pit two contrasting styles and two guys who dont mind taking punishment to give it, that would be a phenomenal fight in my opinion.
