"After I get my lightweight title belt and hold that for awhile, then I’ll do 145, maybe. But I want my belt first. I didn’t cut one pound [for the Pettis fight]. I’m a midget. I’m very undersized for lightweight. It’s one of those… I have fun. Like I said, I’ve been here, we’ve made our stake at lightweight. I’ve paid my dues. I want my belt first then we’ll move on from there."
UFC lightweight contender Clay Guida, who didn't need to cut any weight for his Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 Finale fight against Anthony Pettis, tells the MMA Nation radio show (via Pro MMA Now) that he recognizes his size disadvantage within the promotion's stacked 155-pound division and may even consider a drop to featherweight -- after he wins the lightweight title. Was there anything in "The Carpenter's" performance back on June 4 to convince you he's got the goods to grab the gold? Or is he in for a rude awakening against the top of the food chain? Any Maniacs out there think the self-proclaimed "midget" has a better shot at 145? Opinions, please.
