Clay "The Carpenter" Guida announced this morning that he will begin fighting at the 145 pound Featherweight division in the UFC. The VFD Sports star has been a long-time fan favorite and top contender in the Lightweight division and he feels that now is the perfect time to take on a new challenge.
"The Carpenter is going to explore a new job site at the 145 pound division in the new year," Guida said. "I plan on making a run at the foreman or superintendent position right out of the gates. I hope you guys packed a lunch."
Guida will immediately become a top contender in the Featherweight division, one that is currently led by champ Jose Aldo. Guida feels that the addition of himself and former Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will immediately change the dynamic of the division.
"It will be nice to finally be one of the bigger guys in the cage. I don't cut weight at 155, and making 145 will be no problem for me. My fans will get to see The Dude put some royal beatings on everyone in the division. I will not be satisfied until the Featherweight belt is mine," said Guida.
