Clay Guida Featured In UFC's Return To Abu Dhabi
After competing in multiple countries around the world, VFD Marketing star Clay “The Carpenter” Guida will make a trip to Abu Dhabi, UAE, where he will face the Japanese veteran Tatsuya Kawajiri.
There’s no doubt about Guida being one of the most likeable fighters in the UFC. The Carpenter has a record-breaking number of Fight of the Night awards, and has participated in several Fights of the Year. UFC’s decision to have Clay Guida featured on the co-main event portion of the night (unofficial) supports this claim.
At the age of 35, Tatsuya Kawajiri comes to this fight on an impressive win streak. Yet, Clay Guida is the one welcoming “The Crusher” to the UFC, which since 2006 is his home turf. Victory over Kawajiri will put Clay Guida back in the mix, and will surely be a huge statement for the rest of the division.
UFC Fight Night 39 will be held on April 11, 2014 at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The event is headlined by the Heavyweight bout between Roy Nelson and Antonio Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira.
