Guida Wants Next Crack At Edgar With UFC on FOX Win Over Henderson


“Ben is obviously a gamer, he always comes to fight and fight hard. From what I know, he is a real good dude and respectful, so add that to an intense work ethic and that’s a great recipe for success. … To me, a big win earns a title shot. I want to win big so that there is no question about my title shot. Everyone hyped Melvin Guillard as the obvious next shot, but then he lost in the first-round to Joe (Lauzon). So, I figure with a big win, then it’s my turn for that title shot.”

In an interview with lowkick.com, “The Carpenter” Clay Guida, talks about the UFC’s lightweight title picture and where he sees himself in it.

For near a year the division has been stuck on standby waiting for the conclusion of the Edgar vs. Maynard trilogy. The man who was supposed to be next in line, Mr. Anthony Pettis, couldn’t want and got taken out by Guida and now with no clear number one contender, Guida thinks a win over Henderson earns him that spot.

A win over Henderson is no easy task, not if it’s the same Henderson that completely embarrassed Jim Miller this past August. Anyone think Guida has it in him to derail “Bendo” or is Edgar vs. Henderson all but a lock for the title?

55 Comments to Guida Wants Next Crack At Edgar With UFC on FOX Win Over Henderson

  1. Zack says:

    How boring would Edgar vs guida be. Edgar running like a fairy the whole time and guida acting like a dog in heat

  2. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Sounds like you’re clearly looking past Bendo, and that’s rather foolish. Too bad whether or not you get next crack at the title won’t be an issue, because I don’t see you even going the distance in your next fight. Bendo by 2nd round tko.

  3. Terrance says:

    Guida’s no easy win in the cage but Bendo’s a Beast and will be the next LightWeight Champ !

  4. Guida is dellusional.He’s not gonna get past Bendo.Bendo or Cerrone will dethrone Edgar.

  5. BJ Penn Fan says:

    lightweight class sucks w/o BJ…

    • BJpennrules says:

      Exactly nobody cares about the LW division anymore…Edgar who?

    • bj penn fanatic says:

      Whos edgar? that shadowboxing point fighter? yea he sucks

      • jp says:

        i think maynard will tell you who he is

      • Cheese says:

        Edgar is the guy who in BJ Penn’s own words, “i should’ve stopped fighting after that first fight with Edgar!”

        and after the 2nd fight with BJ , BJ said “much respect”.

        I would like to see BJ back as a light weight myself, but Frankie is the lightweight champ and there is no one on the horizon who could beat him…period…

        untill Frankie moves down to 145, he will own that division, and I believe he has 2 or 3 more fights before moving down. Ben or Clay, then Gil.

  6. Nick says:

    I honestly think Guida or Henderson can take out Edgar, Edgar runs around alot and has no power behind the punches he trows, guida does hop around alot lol but he has power and he HAS cardio thats the thing thats allowed edgar to go this far and in my opinion Henderson is WAY better in all aspects than Edgar..Just waiting for that boring b*tch to go out either guy will be LW champ, just give them a shot!!!

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Which is why he knocked out Grey Maynard…

      • ryu says:

        im with u ninja, i doubted his power until the gray maynard ko. even tho it was more about timing and position, dude still let everyone kno he can knock dudes out, tough dudes, like maynard

      • Nick says:

        my hat goes off to that PUNCH, dont read too much into that tho, maynard was almost down already and completely gassed and it was a great timing shot by Edgar.. the only guy ive seen that wouldnt go down in that situation was Bj,,

  7. WOLFGANG says:

    Bendo will destroy Guida on Saturday

  8. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    If by some miracle Guida wins. Edgar will defeat him in the title defense.

  9. martin says:

    I think I’ll stay home and watch grass grow.

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      You must’ve never seen either of these guys fight, if that’s what you choose to do. Aside from Guida’s last match, where he used a ***** blanket style of fighting to pull off the victory, he’s generally a pretty entertaining fighter. Not the best, nor the best technique, but entertaining even so. Bendo is never a bore, so I’m not sure what point you’re trying to prove with that statement because this looks to be a pretty good scrap, with Bendo coming out the winner

      • P R O D I G Y says:

        Smh.. when did guida use a “***** blanket style of fighting”. every time he got Pettis down he couldnt get any gnp or pass really cause pettis was so active looking for submissions.

      • ryu says:

        im gonna have to say, i hope guida doesnt win because he is one of the least entertaining fighters to watch ive ever seen. henderson vs edgar would b much more entertaining. when i see guida i literallychange the channel. he just lays on the guy for 15 minutes, i dont wanna see him a title shot where he lays on the guy for 25. henderson has a good wrestling pedigree, and i hope its enough to nullify guida and give him the l, so in the future he can just fade into monotony so i dont have to change the channel during his fights anymore…. but thats just me

      • Butt bandit.. Guida always brings his best and never boring.. eventhough Ben’s going to FK him up.

  10. Cagin says:

    Im a big Guida fan. I wil tune in. Anyone who rocks hair like that is a legend

  11. The natural says:

    I think guida wins he gets a shot at the title but hendo wins I don’t think he deserves a shot yet proly two more wins

    • Charles says:

      Your an IDIOT!!! How would Bendo not deserve a shot with a W over Guida? He was the WEC Champ until he lost to Pettis in a fight that could’ve went either way up until the showtime kick (prior to that he won like 10 in a row). Since then he’s beaten Bocek and Destroyed Jim Miller who was considered a top contender. Melvin lost to bum ass lauzon, pettis lost to guida and had one win after that, and maynard is def not an option to face edgar. So if Bendo beats Guida he should be next in line, who else is left thats more deserving…Ben Henderson = Future Champ

      • ryu says:

        i think if henderson beats guida then lauzon vs henderson should decide who gets a title shot, lauzons a good fighter and he finds a way to win, he surprised me with his quick dispatch over guillard who, everyone knows, dana was hoping would get the next title shot

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        George Sotteropolis anybody?

  12. The natural says:

    Haters Edgar doesn’t put on boring fights he only ran around bj Edgar will face rest of division and walk all over rest of division including any new comers

    • BJpennrules says:

      Edgar is a great fighter..and has serious skills…
      but he is not a draw in the UFC and no one really cares to order his fights…
      yaaaaaaawwwn….Edgar just put me to sleep.

  13. steve says:

    remember when guida actually faught?

  14. josh says:

    im callin it now. its about to turn into the wec with henderson holding the belt and cerrone knocking everyone else out of contention…

  15. Creature says:

    Im not completely counting Guida out here.. but i just dont see how he wins this. Bendo is better in pretty much every single area of the sport, Guida may have a cardio advantage but Bendo wont gas so it doesnt matter much. Ive called it like 100 times, i got Bendo being the new champ in 2012 and have Bendo/Cerrone 3 in late 2012 or early 2013 for the Title. I find it ironic that so many people thought the WEC guys wouldnt be able to hang in the UFC, and Bendo, Cerrone, and somewhat even Pettis are all close to a title shot. and a WEC champ will soon be a UFC champ :D

    • ryu says:

      even tho henderson beat cerrone, i see donald as a more dangerous fight for edgar, style wise, donalds been puttin in work, hes my fav fighter ar 155 right now

      • Creature says:

        Ill agree on the Cerrone being my fav at 155 but in a close 2nd is Bendo and Maynard. Personally i think Bendo would be the bigger threat, hes a very good wrestler, has good bjj, very good strikes, good cardio and is a very big LW. But Cerrone is almost as dangerous, hes fast and has power, great off his back.. If Edgar thought Grey’s uppercuts hurt wait until he tastes a Cerrone kick.. IMO Cerrone would KO Edgar.. cant pick a round though

  16. BJpennrules says:

    is worth double the pay, Dana should offer him BIG BANK!!!, to come back to LW he will again be the LW divisions biggest draw!.

  17. Ahbustae86 says:

    Guida and Bendo will not beat Edgar. You need to slow Edgar down to hit him cause no one at LW can hit Edgar consistently. You can grab him and take him down, but can you hold him down. I can’t think of anyone right now that can beat Frankie at LW. At 145 he would struggle.

  18. Xaninho says:

    Looking back at the way Henderson destroyed Miller I can only say one thing to Guida: Clay this is going to hurt son…alot.

    I’m not hoping for it, cause I like him……apart from the boring wrestling tactics against Pettis he always fought like a crazy lunatic, which wasn’t stylistically pretty to look at but definitely entertaining!

  19. DBKlein69 says:

    lol too bad u gonna get abused by bendo

  20. If Guida can get around Bendo he can have the jersey jackass, but Ben will stop him in his tracks!

  21. jc says:

    fuck bj, hes done. bj has the biggest heart inside the cage but nothing outside of it. dont be scared to train homie.

  22. Long-Strong says:

    he should focus on Henderson first.

  23. Guz says:

    I like Guida and Bendo both…Hard match for me to pick, Guida has been on a roll and I’d like to see him fight for the belt as I think its his last chance but I think Bendo is the better match-up to Edgar. I don’t think Guida could beat Edgar.

  24. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    I’m rooting for Bendo because I can’t stand Guida’s fight style. I also can’t stand his annoying bouncy hair! But, it’s going to be so funny when 95% of the people in this thread have to give him props for beating Bendo. Not saying that’s going to happen based on Darwin-ism but you never know. I’ve only seen Bendo fight the Cowboy.
