Clay Guida has decided to give a new division a try, as he announced that his next fight will come at 145 pounds. Guida follows former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar to featherweight.
“‘The Carpenter’ is going to explore a new job site at the 145-pound division in the new year,” said Guida, in a statement released by VFD Sports Marketing. “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 was defeated in his last UFC fight, falling to Gray Maynard. Guida is 29-13 in his career and 9-7 inside the Octagon.
“It will be nice to finally be one of the bigger guys in the cage,” Guida said. “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.”
