    Maybe Chad should fight Clay?

      Mendes KOed Guida the same night Pettis beat Henderson. I think??

      • TheCerealKiller

        That’s right, I missed that card. He has a while to wait for another title fight with Aldo/Conor in July. If Frankie wins, I’d like to see those two.

        • shakejunt

          idk if we’ll see that next for both guys, but i think we will see it one day.

    • DanaBlack

      I had forgotten about that too, i only remembered Dennis Bermudez beating him. Mendes beat him too.

    Masvidal should have been the highest paid. The judges screwed him out of a win and 51.000 dollars.

    • polk me in the a**

      $51,000 is NOT 51.000 dollars genius. 51.000 is literally $51 dollars. Learn how to use a comma correctly. BTW you’re a racist moron! Have a great night

      Masvidal should have actually fought, instead of doing his chicken dance sparring routine for 10 minutes. Al was throwing cartwheel kicks, flying leg scissors, and every other circus move he could think of. Masvidal could have capitalized on the huge openings but just backed away and took no chances. He lost for the same reason Guida lost to Maynard.

      Oh, also…. Guida has no business being the highest paid guy here…..or anywhere. That is almost as silly as calling out Dos Anjos after winning a decision over a nobody.

      • justin

        Yeah, but he called out President Obama too. Muricans love that. Gotta pay the guy.

  • clem wilson

    Guida is not worth much and is a bum

    • Guest

      obviously you’re just another casual fan with limited knowledge.

  • Muaythai4life

    I’m probably showing my age, but I love watching Clay Guida on any card. He’s always energetic, brings the fight, and is super scrappy. Personally, I think he’s worth the money.

    • sheep2012

      He’s a really durable fighter with cardio for days, but I’d like to see him really revamp his standup game. It hasn’t been working well for him all these years. If he could start knocking ppl out, he will be very fun to watch.
