“The Carpenter” Clay Guida looks to reinvent himself as he drops down in weight to explore a new ‘job site’ as he sees it.
“I plan on making a run at the foreman or superintendent position right out of the gates. I hope you guys packed a lunch.”
Guida points out the fact that he is one of the smaller lightweights, and just as the former champ Frankie Edgar did, he does not cut weight at 155.
“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,” said Guida.
The featherweight division continues to grow as another UFC notable, former lightweight joins the newer division. Headed by kingpin Jose Aldo, the division has been in need of fresh new challengers as the dominate champ has been cleaning house since 2009 when he earned the WEC belt with a speedy knockout of Cub Swanson via flying knee.
