Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Anthony Pettis vs. Clay Guida Reported for UFC 130 or 131

With Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard III tentatively scheduled for UFC 130 (May 28th, Las Vegas), Anthony Pettis has decided to fight again rather than wait all year for the title shot he’d been promised — a risky proposition considering how stacked the lightweight division is at the top. According to, Pettis will likely take on Clay Guida at either UFC 130 or UFC 131, which goes down two weeks later in Vancouver. It’s a kick in the nuts for perennial contender Kenny Florian, who was angling for the Pettis fight himself.

You’d sort of hope that Pettis/Guida happens at #130, so that if Pettis wins, he can enter the cage following the main event and face off with the lightweight champion in a "you have my belt, homey" moment. Of course if Edgar vs. Maynard results in another tie, we’re all screwed. Not out of the realm of possibility, considering how evenly matched those guys are.

Pettis is on a four-fight win streak, and is coming off his WEC lightweight title-winning performance against Ben Henderson, aided by The Greatest Kick the World Has Ever Seen. (By the way, Pettis’s trainer Duke Roufus told Sherdog that Pettis has "10 other [highlight-reel] kicks and moves for the UFC and he’s going to prove it." Be very afraid.) Guida has won his last three fights by submission, most recently choking out Takanori Gomi at UFC 125. After the jump: An incredible photo of Clay Guida doing a Richard Nixon impression at some kind of topless pool party.

I have word from Clay himself that this is just a rumor. He says he has not been told anything yet. He will talk to his manager tomorrow.

I gotta say this sucks for Pettis. If there was one 155er that I would avoid at all costs right now it's Guida - that guy is on a streak and I just don't see Pettis stopping him.

LOL do you remember the kick Guida took from Sanchez? I think baby Gieco will be OK.

Pettis is a G for taking that fight.

When Rogan said that Guida was doing the same kind of dance that they do for King Kong to come, I fucking lost it.

Why is Ben Henderson in those red undies next to sunburnt-Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords??

Damn, Gary Goodridge IS fucking desperate.

Clay Guida really, really, really likes boobs.

This could be an amazing fight!

And in that picture of the pool party, I really think Sokodjou needs to lay off the juice. He is starting to get some really bad gynocomastia.

i like guida, but i dont think he can beat pettis. its just another step back for guida if he loses.
Viva Hate- January 11, 2011 at 8:37 am
Come on you guys? You do not recognize the chick in the red bikini bottoms? She is always wearing a red bikini.............Chandella Powell.

Goog likes his girls big....and manly.

This shot was taken 5 seconds before the guy sitting beside Guida throws in that white towel.

[But let's be honest... if her hand wasn't over her tits, you'd all be zooming in on those two pixels for a hopeful look at a nipple before posting all the negative comments. Whores.]

Pettis is staying active against a far less impressive (at this stage in his career, at least) but more experienced version of Ben Henderson? I'll allow it.

I called it yesterday that Pettis and Guida were going to fight! Now lets see if my other prediction comes true: that either they'll coach TUF, or Edgar and Maynard will.

I've heard of man boobs, but that's ridiculous.
danomite- January 11, 2011 at 8:15 am
If I were Pettis I would have taken a fight with anybody not named Clay Guida at this point. Sure, he's exciting and has been finishing a lot of guys lately but he still has the ability to grind out a decision if he feels like it. And if Dana screws up and tells Guida that a win will get him a title shot then that's exactly what we're gonna see. Think about it, every time I can remember that Dana has promised a guy a title shot if he wins his next one, the fight has ended up being very boring.

your photoshopping skills are amazing Mruss. The way you shopped antonio silva's head onto that girl in the read bikini looks amazingly real.

Since the Pettis vs Maynard/Edgar match was to be billed as a title unification match, they should make Pettis vs Guida for the WEC Lightweight title. The winner of Pettis/Guida faces winner of Edgar/Maynard III in a unification match.
