Clay Guida talks about several subjects including his interest in a potential move to featherweight, a rematch with Gilbert Melendez, and who is on his radar for his next fight.

If and when Strike Force folds, I would love to see a rematch between Guida and Melendez.

Guida's frame is more suited for 145 in the long run...for not cutting much weight at 155, Guida is an animal

Yeah he at 145 is gonna be Aldos kryptonite I think...He moves so erratic it will be annoying as hell like it is to everyone else....And if he were Homincik I see Guida winning that fight if hes in that same scenario at the end cause hes the cardio king...

I like the idea of moving down to FW for Guida, he wont be winning the LW title or even getting a title shot there, wouldnt say he's top 10 anyway.

I dont think you can keep him out of the top 10. But i do not like this guida anymore. He acts like deserves the title shot already.He didnt do anything exiting in the pettis fight and he thinks Dana will put him on the first event on fox.

I think he would be champ pretty quickly if he dropped weight classes.

I think its good either way. Hes something different for everyone in either class. Not to happy what Jackson is doing to him though. Turning him into a "winner" Not a "fighter"

Miss the old Guida that fought Diego

anyone who doesnt think Guida is near a title shot is delirious. right now, only Guillard is next in line with Miller choking. Guida, Bendo, and Siver are all a win or 2 at most away from a title shot. personally i think Guida vs Bendo should be next on tap (hopefully at 140 )

Really? I think his cardio advantage would be less at FW/ Plus, he got outclassed bad by Ken Florian at lw. . . I don't know that it would be any different at FW.
