The “Carpenter” Clay Guida seems to be feel really confident coming into this fight against Diego “The Nightmare” Sanchez at The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale (TUF 9). Not only does he feel like he is going to beat Sanchez, but Guida also believes that once he “runs through” him he’ll be the No. 1 contender in the lightweight division.
Both fighters will headline the TUF 9 Finale event that is scheduled to take place this upcoming Saturday night (June 20) at The Pearl in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be televised live and free on Spike TV.
Snip from Clay Guida:
“After I win my fourth in a row against Diego Sanchez — and that will be my third straight win against a former Ultimate Fighter champion — I think I deserve a title shot. But in the UFC, that’s a privilege. In the UFC, they don’t just give away title shots. You have to earn it. If you look at my fights in the UFC, I’ve had a couple close decisions, a lot of exciting fights, and I think this will really put me on the map as the No. 1 contender, once I run through Diego.”
