Am I the only one who's ecstatic to see the Edgar-Maynard trilogy finally come to an end? It's time for someone new to take a shot at Frankie's belt, and that someone could very well be UFC journeyman Clay Guida.
"The Carpenter" has tallied four straight victories, three of which came via submission, and he has been tearing through the ranks of the lightweight division.
There's a long line of talented lightweights waiting for a shot at Edgar, but Guida looks to be one of the top contenders. Now that the Edgar-Maynard series has finally run its course, Guida is one step closer to getting his hands on some hardware.
He's currently scheduled to fight rising star Ben Henderson on November 12 as part of the UFC on FOX 1 card. Should he come out on top, Dana White will have some great news for him.
Guida could be a legitimate threat to Edgar's belt, should the two square off. He's a tenacious wrestler and his chin is one of the most solid in all of MMA.
He was nowhere to be found on the UFC 136 card, but you can tack up a W for Clay Guida.
