UFC fan favorite Clay Guida may be down after his loss to former WEC lightweight champion Benson Henderson, but he's not out.
The lightweight division is one of the UFC's deepest weight classes. There's a myriad of fighters for Guida to fight to regain his steam and return to form.
Some of these fights may represent a tune-up fight while others could be much closer affairs.
So what fights make sense for Clay Guida? Read and find out!
Jim Miller and Clay Guida were practically made for each other. Both men were once considered the next big thing at lightweight and both men didn't live up to the hype.
Who wouldn't want to see the exciting grappling match that would unfold when these two got in the cage?
The UFC once touted Dennis Siver as the next big thing at lightweight. This notion was proven to be ridiculous.
A Siver-Guida match would prove if Siver was ever really that good and it would also be an interesting striker-versus-grappler match-up.
George Sotiropoulos was another would-be contender at lightweight who had his hype train derailed by Dennis Siver and then by Rafael dos Anjos.
Sotiropoulos has been missing in action since the loss to dos Anjos, but seeing him and his rubber-guard prowess return against Clay Guida would be a thrilling fight to watch.
After an impressive 9-0-1 (1 NC) record in the UFC, Gray Maynard finally tasted defeat when he suffered a TKO loss at the hands of UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.
Maynard against Guida would be an intriguing fight for sure. Whose wrestling would prevail? Did Edgar expose a weak chin?
Such questions and more would be answered in a fight that could easily co-main event a free television card.
