Clay Guida Talks UFC on Fox Fight With Ben Henderson

“Ben Henderson is the next guy in front of me that’s keeping me from my title shot. Very well spoken opponent, very humble young man and just a great competitor, so I’m really looking forward to the challenge. We always rise to the top for the toughest occasions. This is going to be my most important fight, my toughest fight. I know Ben is going to be on his top conditioning and his best camp, so that’s all we’re looking for. … We want to fight the best conditioned, best camp he’s had and that’s going to tell the tale of maybe who’s next in line.”

    Good luck Guida the killer pimp….this is gonnna be a good fight.

  2. Creature says:

    I like both guys, and i knew Bendo was pretty good, but after seeing the Jim Miller fight, man i dont see anyone beating him anytime soon. I say he man handles Guida almost exactly the way he did Miller. Gets a title shot, then does to Edgar what he did his past 3 opponents

  3. Adam says:

    I hope Henderson kicks Guida off the hype train, just like J-Lau did to Guilard. These guys aren’t even close to the top.

  4. Fortyb4five says:

    I’ll be shocked if Bendo doesn’t come away with the W.

  5. CALI says:

    haha, very nice intro…

  6. Will says:

    Pat Barry won that interview.

  7. Mike McMack says:

    Bendo is gonna pull the AA’s out the energizer bunny’s a**!

  8. bob says:

    Clay dosen’t deserve a title shot, the Pettis fight showed that. They need to start taking money or points for Lay and Prey. Laying on someone for 15 minutes shouldnt be seen as a win or being the better fighter.

      Are you retarded?

      To be able to get someone to the ground and control them is not dominating someone? If you lack the ability to move, shrimp and escape you lose.

      If I pin you down for 15 minutes and you are as good as Paul Daly getting off his back in the koscheck fight sorry you lose.

    • Jmad says:

      those were fights where he got his ass kicked and wasn’t able to lay and pray. He was scared of Pettis so he took the safe route to victory.

    It’s a good fight.

    Ben Henderson is the stronger IMO.

    Guida is just a grinder.

    I have it Bendo via murder. i kno thats how bendo predicted bj wud beat frankie, but i think this time he will actually brutally win this fight. guida doesnt pose any dangers.

  10. SanSooRob says:

    Bendo next lightweight champ !!!!

  11. Lex w says:

    Clay is kool and all but he has no chance

  12. Mike Diaz says:

    The LW division has a lot of good matches to pair up. I got Bendo if he comes with his takedown defense. Guida holding the LW belt would not be a PPV draw whatsoever unless they paired him with an exciting opponent! PENN NATION!!!!!!!

  13. @junkie

    its gonna come down to whether clay can Stop BEN’s TD’s. mark my words Bendo will man handle clay forcing him to move to 145. Ben didnt look that great that night and if it wasnt for the kick would have beat Pettis. Ben since joining the UFC has dominated guys and i say this fight goes just like the Jim Miller fight with less sub attempts

  14. James says:

    Bendo will beat Guida but idk about Edgar. I can see Bendo being the LW champ if he steps it up a little bit.

  15. Dex says:

    Going with Bendo for the finish. Like Guida but he’s over matched in this one

  16. bjnutthugger says:

    no, bendo has by far much more better wrestling than clay, my boy bendo got this, hes actually my best friend..

  17. Jacob G says:

    Clay Guida is garbage. Fought nothing in his last few wins except for Pettis who was more impressive on his back. HOPE YOU LOSE GUIDA.

    • El Charlie says:

      Only garbage around her are comments like these. He finished all of his last 4 fights but 1 and he’s garbage. Enough of the lay and pray complaints, its part of the sport. To control a guy on the ground is no easy task. It’s easier to swing your hands around and pray to land that lucky shot. Yeah I will admit the Pettis fight wasn’t his greatest performance but however, he did beat him. Fair and square doing something that’s part of the sport. If you guys don’t like fighters that wrestle why even watch them. So you can come back on this thread and complain how much they lay and pray. Please, save it. The guys relentless and has never been finished. He’ll slug it out as much as he’ll take you down. Watch the Diego fight if you disagree.
