    i would prefer a different match up, but clay has been winning and he wants to step up in comp. this should be diego's fight no problem but you never know with clay.if clay did win i would say that really moves him up in the ranks.


    maybe he will repeat the stupidest entrance in mma history. Please win guida, even though I don't think you have a prayer.

    Nightmare will walk throw clay..I use to love clay but after his lAST fight with Nate(which in my eyes Nate won that with easy) all he did in that fight was hold on to Nate so he coudnt Get sub, he didnt even throw punchs or anything..When nate was on the ground Nate was looking for subs the hole time and Clay didnt even throw punchs he just holded on..when they were standing clay would just slip punch then hold Nate then Nate would go for a standing Kermora and then Clay would scrable and then just sit in Nates gaurd..You could even hear clays corner men saying its not just a wrestling match throw some punches…

    Nightmare will has just as good wrestling and The nightmare is better on the feet..

    I agree Diego has showed more talent and ability recently while Guida has just layed on top of people huggning them but i still think the guy is intesting.

    I see Sanchez winning by decision, possibly by knockout. Diego is gonna keep it standing. Not to take anything away from Nate, but Diego has better take down defense. I still think that Guida won the fight against Nate. Even though he hugged him to victory, Nate should have just defended the take down. He knew it was coming but allowed it anyway so Nate lost. Diego however will defend the take down successfully and force Clay to stand and eat punches

  6. I think Sanchez could win anywhere the fight goes, striking or on the ground. If Sanchez’s power returns like when he fought at 170, it will could be a shot night for Clay :(
