UFC Lightweight Clay Guida

After 16 fights inside the Octagon, UFC veteran Clay Guida (Pictured) has announced he’s shedding 10 pounds and dropping to the featherweight division.

“‘The Carpenter’ is going to explore a new job site at the 145 pound division in the new year,” Guida expressed on his management’s official website. “I plan on making a run at the foreman or superintendent position right out of the gates.  I hope you guys packed a lunch.

“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 posted a 9-7 mark while competing at lightweight under the UFC’s watch (29-13 record overall). The 30-year-old’s transition comes on the heels of two consecutive losses, with his most recent coming in a split decision defeat to Gray Maynard in June.

He has never fought for a UFC title.
