Having been on the wrong side of a few
controversial decisions during his time with the UFC, lightweight competitor
Clay Guida worked as hard as ever to prove himself during his bout with Ultimate
Fighter Season 6 winner Mac Danzig on Wednesday night at UFC Fight Night 15 in
Omaha.

 

Guida kept up a very high pace during the
fight with Danzig and when it was over he felt there was no doubt that he was
the victor.

 

“I felt confident in this one,” href="http://videos.mmaweekly.com/view_player.php?id=2762">said Guida about the
decision.  “He’s got pretty
good takedown defense, towards, up against the cage, he stopped it, he stopped
my takedown a couple of times.  But
I stuck with it and put him down to his butt where I wanted it and it did feel
good to come out with the decision.”

 

In the end, Guida was able to dominate
the ground portion of the fight, landing numerous takedowns while being
cautious of his opponent’s considerable submission skills in the process.

 

“He’s dangerous off his back and I didn’t
think he was going to be that slick,” Guida commented. style="mso-spacerun: yes"> 
“We stuck to the gameplan, it wasn’t
pretty.  We got the decision in the
end and I’ve got to say that he was better on the feet, better on the ground
than we expected.”

 

With only two fights so far in 2008, the
Illinois native is hopeful for a chance to fight again this year, after a 2007
campaign that saw him go to battle a total of four times.

 

“I hope I can get one more fight this year. style="mso-spacerun: yes">  I had a five-month layoff, just the
UFC’s got a lot of people in the division,” he said.  “I hope I can get at least one more fight in 08′ and whoever
it is I’m ready to roll.”
