Clay “The Carpenter” Guida (22-8-0) will be taking on Roger “El Matador” Huerta at The Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale, which is scheduled for December 8th at The Pearl, Nevada. The main event looks to be extremely crucial because this lightweight battle will most likely tell us who will be getting closer to the title.
El Matador has shown all MMA fans the type of skills he possesses with already 5 straight wins since the day he first signed with the UFC. Prior to his UFC contract, Huerta held an impressive 14-1-1 overall MMA record. The Mexican-American mixed martial artist recently defeated Alberto Crane at UFC 74-Respect (results and pics) via TKO-strikes during the third round, where he completely dominated his opponent throughout all 3 rounds.
Guida is also coming off a win to Marcus Aurelio at UFC 74-Respect (results and pics) as he took home a win via a split decision. He holds a 2-2 record in the UFC, submitting Justin James during his UFC debut via a rear naked choke. Guida seems very confident that he has improved and is ready to take on one of the most toughest opponents in the lightweight division.
This is what Clay Guida had to say about his upcoming bout against Roger Huerta:
tough kid, as advertised. I definitely think I’ve fought better competition
than him, but he’s fought some tough dudes, is very athletic, and keeps a high
pace. I hope and expect he’ll be in tip top shape. That’s the only way I want
it too. When I win, people won’t be able to say it was a fluke or Roger was a
flash in the pan. It’s going to be “game on” for sure…. I treat every fight as
important as the next and this one is on my way to a title shot. This is the
biggest one of my life so far. It’s a main event on live television and there
is going to be a lot of people watching. I’m going take the limelight off of
Roger and put it on myself.”
