Clay Guida Following Frankie Edgar to Featherweight

Clay Guida announced earlier this morning through his management that he’ll be exiting the lightweight division.

“The Carpenter is going to explore a new job site at the 145 pound division in the new year,” Guida was quoted as saying in the statement. “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 is coming off a two fight losing streak at lightweight, recently dropping a controversial split decision to Gray Maynard and a decision loss to current UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson.

“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,” Guida said in his statement.
