Guida dropping to featherweight, expects to return in 2012

source: vfdsports.com
 

Clay "The Carpenter" Guida announced this morning that he will begin fighting at the 145 pound Featherweight division in the UFC.  The VFD Sports star has been a long-time fan favorite and top contender in the Lightweight division and he feels that now is the perfect time to take on a new challenge.

"The Carpenter is going to explore a new job site at the 145 pound division in the new year," Guida said.  "I plan on making a run at the foreman or superintendent position right out of the gates.  I hope you guys packed a lunch."

"It will be nice to finally be one of the bigger guys in the cage.  I don't cut weight at 155, and making 145 will be no problem for me.  My fans will get to see The Dude put some royal beatings on everyone in the division.  I will not be satisfied until the Featherweight belt is mine," said Guida.

I think that's wishful thinking. He already got heat for using a stalling strategy against Pettis and didn't seem to care. There's no indication that he realizes what a mistake turning his fight with Maynard into a track meet was and he actually said he thought he won the fight and was acting like a punk backstage by Maynard's camp. Unless his opponent stops him from doing it, we'll likely see him fight like that again.

Could care less. I hope he loses every fight he's ever in and has to go coach wrestling or track somewhere. He lost me as a fan after dryhumping Pettis and then going Chariots of Fire on Maynard.

Can he really cut to that though? I thought he already made a pretty large cut.

Guida used to put on some great performances. Now it seems like he's only known for his last outing. After the backlash from that fight I doubt we will see him adopt that game plan again. Well I hope not.

If KZ gets a guida fight i think he submits guida. His performance against Porier was amazing and i can only see him getting better.

You're right every single fight he has ever been in was boring. He has never been involved in a crazy brawl.

Not interested. He could move up to 170 and i still would not give one single fuck.
