Clay Guida is one of my favorite figthers. Whenever he's on a card, I know it's going to be a good fight. I dig his energy and how he mixes up an slugfest with a good ground game. Of his 5 losses, 3 have been by decision and the other 2 have been by submission.
There is something about Clay that is missing, and I don't quite know what it is. Perhaps it is how reckless he gets at times, but I just think he is a solid fighter who I believe can get a title shot if he strings together a couple more wins.
Do you guys think Guida can be a legitimate title contender in the lightweight division? It seems like whenever he runs a few wins together, Dana gives him a shot against a name and he falls short. Take a look at who he has beat and who he has lost to:
Wins: Rafael dos Anjos, Shannon Gugerty, Nate Diaz, Mac Danzig, Samy Schiavo, Marcus Aurelio, Justin James.
Losses: Kenny Florian, Diego Sanchez, Roger Huerta, Tyson Griffin, Din Thomas
It'd be nice to see The Carpenter come through in a big fight at some point.
