TUF 13 Finale Results: Was That Win Enough to Earn Clay Guida a Title Shot?
The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale Results: Clay Guida Defeats Anthony Pettis
Bleacher Report's Scott Harris:
During last night's finale of Season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter, Clay Guida grounded former WEC champ and Head Kicker Extraordinaire Anthony Pettis into the matt en route to a unanimous decision victory.
Though Pettis looked respectable and may have gotten the better of the striking exchanges, Guida's takedowns, to the surprise of no one, were hard for Showtime to stop, and once on the ground, The Carpenter smothered all submission attempts.
Guida (29-11) has historically been considered a gatekeeper, even something of a lovable loser, in the UFC's lightweight division. Always a fanbase darling, Guida was well known for repeatedly earning Fight of the Night honors in losing performances to top contenders.
But that may now be changing.
After joining Greg Jackson's submission wrestling camp, things have seemed to snap into place for Guida, who is 4-1 since hooking up with Jackson. Jackson's expert eye (especially for all things ground game) have apparently closed a lot of loopholes in The Carpenter's game. And after defeating a highly regarded champion in Pettis, Guida is that much closer to his long-pursued shot at a UFC title.
