Clay Guida is a warrior looking for the best and most exciting fights.
Right now the Dana White, Joe Silva, and Sean Shelby should be cutting Clay Guida a bonus check. He just made their lives much easier. No one inside the top ten will acknowledge Conor McGregor’s existence much less actually call him out. It makes sense as a high ranked fighter there is no upside for them...

For the first time since Anderson Silva’s horrid display of showmanship at UFC 112, the Octagon returned to Abu Dhabi, home of its part-owners. And this card more than made up for the previous disappointment, with great fights throughout. Topping the bill was the heavyweight fight between veterans Roy Nelson and Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira. It was a tentative start from both men...
The UFC returned to Abu Dhabi for the first time since UFC 112 in 2010, and I can say with a good deal of certainty that this was a much better card (Matt Hughes vs. Renzo Gracie, anyone?). The majority of the fights were solid, and the action was called by my favorite commentating team, Brits Dan Hardy and John Gooden. It’s impossible to overstate how much more I like...

Chad Mendes TKO’s Clay Guida (Gif)
After finishing off his past three opponents in the opening round, former UFC featherweight top contender Chad Mendes (pictured) must have felt like he was working overtime in Saturday’s third round TKO victory over Clay Guida.
After patiently measuring Guida in the opening two frames, Mendes saw his opportunity to take “The Carpenter” out in the final frame and capitalized...
Clay Guida may have had a fan friendly style back in the day, but I find him a complete bore. Mendes on the other hand now has 4 straight KOs. Nice GIF by ZombieProphet.
