Christmas comes twice!

Do you remember that scene in Fight Club where Edward Norton completely smashes in Jared Leto’s face, and afterwards says “ ” target=”_blank”>I wanted to destroy something beautiful.” Well now, Clay Guida has the opportunity to destroy something beautiful. In a move that will completely validate the existence of the Ultimate Fighter season six, the UFC has booked Clay Guida vs Roger Huerta to headline the finale.

You’ve read it right: Guida vs Huerta. How many times have people asked for this one? How many times have they said “Huerta’s okay, but just wait till they put him against someone like Clay Guida”? And every time someone would say something like that, I would think “Yeah right, like the UFC is gonna put their Hispanic poster boy up against a hippy meat grinder like Clay Guida.”

Now they have, and I can’t help but be excited. As much as I try to hate Huerta for being a pretty boy, I can’t help but respect him as a fighter. That won’t stop me from enjoying Guida crush him. Huerta has shown he has the skills to hang in the UFC, but not against a guy like Guida who is destined to be the Karo Parisyan of the lightweight division: always a threat to everyone, but never managing to get a shot at the belt.

    i dunno… if it goes to the cards, you think clay has a chance?

  • Lifer says:

    I favor Guida in this fight and that tells me I should be picking Huerta.

  • Xavier says:

    Oh man, for free too? All praise to Alla… err… Dana!

  • shanaconda says:

    Guida by Swarm’n’Harm

  • Thomas says:

    As always Guida gets F’kd by the judges. Huerta wins by split decision with the last judge giving him the fight 30-24

  • Accomando says:

    Guida is the man.

    “…Yeah right, like the UFC is gonna put their Hispanic poster boy up against a hippy meat grinder like Clay Guida…”

    “Hippy meat grinder”, oh man, still laughing at that one.

  • Kenny the Swede says:

    I don’t get it. Why does everyone like Guida so much? Sure, he’s spastic, but he hits like a girl and can’t finish anyone. In his last 10 fights, 6 have gone to the judges and he lost 3 of those. Hardly impressive. The only way he can win is if he catches Huerta in a sub, but if Crane couldn’t do it, I doubt Guida can. The good news is that I don’t see this fight going the distance. Huerta by ref stoppage round 2.

  • ajadoniz says:

    This will either legitimize Don Huerta or catapult Sir Guida into the next evolutionary step, homo-erectus.

  • Thomas says:

    homo-erectus?? Hopefully that isn’t a wrestling manuever

  • Rollo the Cat says:

    A win for Guida doesn’t really won’t do anything for him. He already beat Marcus Aurelio who is far more skilled and accomplished. It is a chance for Huerta to show he has some real ability.

    How anyone can think Huerta can stop Guida when Thomas, Marcus, Griffin and Melendez couldn’t is beyond me. Huerta is a B level fighter.

  • BigFern says:

    dude no way. Huerta will crush him! i guess we’ll see who’s for real afte rthe fight

  • Rollo the Cat says:

    what exactly do you see in Huerta? Sloppy boxing, no submissions, never faced top competition. The guy has some wrestling but nothing to match the top guys in the division.

  • hbdale309 says:

    Remember round won of Huerta vs. Evans? You know, right before Doug gassed? Well expect that for 3 rounds as Guida uses his superior wrestling to control Roger and win a UD. This one will be a great fight.

  • hbdale309 says:

    Dude, I meant round one, not won. lmao

  • Tommy says:

    I know your a betting man fightlinker. I take Huerta. Clay just isn’t smart enough or liked enough to beat him.

  • Tommy says:

    In fighting you have to be smart enough to figure out a way to finish your opponent. Here is where Clay proves he really just might be the neanderthal caveman he resembles.

  • Tommy says:

    Guess that means no bet?

  • I’m down :-) All we gotta agree on is what the bet entails. How about when I win, you have to give me a naked picture of your girlfriend 😉

  • Tommy says:

    Sounds like I’d be in a no lose situation to me. Just name the stakes and it’s on.

  • Tommy says:

    I really must be smoking too fucking much anymore. For some damn reason I didn’t click on the link you provided for the article. You got this info from mania? I hate that guy and I gotta be mushed now for sure. I might believe the fight to be real though cause at least it was Jesse that checked and got the info. Tom will just make up bs on the fly and when you call him on it he’ll edit your comment then fix his.

  • Well shit … I dunno what YOU want. But I want a naked picture of your girlfriend. You tell me what I can offer you. I’d love to offer the same, but my girlfriend learned back before we started dating not to do that kinda stuff 😉

  • Tommy says:

    I accept your bet and I’ll think of something. I naturally think money but that wouldn’t be a fair exchange. I’ll come up with something and until then consider your bet accepted.

  • Tommy says:

    PS you just cant post the picture on your site or any others.

  • Of course not. That’s not part of the bet. The picture is for me and doesn’t get around. I may be a jerk in my blog but I’m not an asshole in general :-)

  • Tommy says:

    lol..I feel ya, cool. I need to take a couple this weekend in case I lose cause she’s already two months pregnant and probably will only be attractive to me once the bet rolls around but I got ya.

  • Tommy says:

    Thanks man. I gotta admit it makes me nervous. I’ll let you know when I think of what I’ll want when your caveman gets stumped again. I think he’d have better luck finishing a Gieco commercial myself.

  • Jenkins says:

    Wow, bold prediction! or shoud I say way off!… At this time Clay is a WEC fighter at best. Today’s fighters who want to get to the top of the food chain (especially lighter fighters) need to be versed in all aspects: wrestling, jiu-jitsu, and stand-up, in addition to being in great shape. Clay has two out of four, great shape and wrestling. He’s IS an animal and that’s not good enough. I’ve recently seen him in training try to put a triangle on with his legs on the wrong side (squeeze, squeeze, ah shit). He’s got the speed and stamina yet he needs to go to a good camp and become well-rounded. Huerta has equal cardio and better stand-up and his jiu-jitsu will eat Clay up. Clay will be in trouble on his back. Second round choke.

  • Tommy says:

    Uh huh..see that fightlinker. Trying to put a triangle on drawkcab. I’m telling ya, fighting takes brains or at least sometimes brute force will do it, like a Tank Abbot. Clay doesn’t have much of either, lots of heart though.

  • I pick heart over skill any day!
