Exclusive Interview: Clay Guida Discusses UFC 117 Fight Against Rafael Dos Anjos

Sal Mora talks w UFC Lightweight Clay Guida for – Watch more Funny Videos

After suffering tough losses against Diego Sanchez and Kenny Florian last year, Clay Guida came back with a renewed fire this March and choked out Shannon Gugerty — his first submission victory in three-and-a-half years. With momentum back on his side, the Carpenter looks to keep the ball rolling next month at UFC 117 (August 7th, Oakland), where he’ll take on Rafael Dos Anjos, who is riding three straight victories against Rob Emerson, Kyle Bradley, and Terry Etim. In this exclusive interview filmed by Sal Mora at Jackson’s MMA in Albuquerque, Guida tells us what the fight against Dos Anjos means to him, and explains the advantages he’ll have in the cage. He also weighs in on UFC 117′s Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen main event; unsurprisingly, Clay likes the hard-nosed wrestler’s chances.

When asked which loss he’d go back and avenge if he could, Guida said that he doesn’t like to look back at the past. However:

"I think the Diego Sanchez fight kinda spoke for itself. I think he won three minutes of the fight, maybe four. I think I controlled the rest of the fight. So that’s one of those [fights] that would have maybe put me in line for title contention. And it would also be one of the greatest fights again…Diego’s a buddy of mine, I hope the best for him, and our time will come again, maybe. If not, who cares, I [plan to] just keep winning."

Mis-pronouncing names of fighters that are pretty well known in unacceptable by an interviewer if you plan to be taken seriously in the future. I realize that most likely ( I hope ) it was just nerves speaking but jesus, have a drink before the interview if need be to calm the nerves and calmly ask/read your questions.

I hope Clay gets back into the title mix.

I like Guida on account of the fact that he expends more energy on his walk to the cage than most fighters do the entire fight.

I'm sorry, but getting your a$$ beat for 3 or 4 minutes, and dryhumping the rest does not meant you win.

I don't care if he is the coolest dude on the planet, his style of "fighting" is horrible.
