“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?
