Clay Guida: 'I still feel I'm the best' lightweight after loss to Diego Sanchez

Quoteworthy:

"I still feel I'm the best out here in the lightweights. It might take me another year to get that title shot.... I gotta give [Diego Sanchez] credit. He's one of the first guys to take me down in the cage. He didn't really do much with it, but he still scored some points. He brought a little bit of everything, kicks, punches, takedown, takedown defense.... It's gonna set me back a little bit, but I'm already thinking about getting back in the gym and really taking this seriously."

Clay Guida talks about where he feels he stands in the crowded lightweight division after a tough split decision loss to Diego Sanchez at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 9 Finale on June 20. It was an epic back-and-forth, edge-of-your-seat fight from start to finish that is clearly one of the best fights of the year so far. Sanchez more than likely earned himself a title shot later this year with the win, while Guida will head back to the drawing board and attempt to work his way back up the ladder. That will happen sooner rather than later, according to Guida, who is already talking about getting back in the gym and getting "serious." This guy is crazy.
