Clay Guida Announces “I Will Not be Satisfied Until the Featherweight Belt is Mine”
By FCF Staff
After dropping back-to-back decision losses to Benson Henderson and most recently Gray Maynard, Clay Guida has decided to end his run at lightweight and move to the featherweight division.
The 30 year-old-veteran made the announcement via the website of his management, VFD Sports.
“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,” Guida was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion.
Guida (29-13) went 9-7 in the UFC lightweight division, and worked his way to the top of the rankings by scoring wins over noted fighters like Nate Diaz, Mac Danzig and Anthony Pettis among others.
No information regarding when Guida is expected to debut in the UFC featherweight division was provided.
