Clay GuidaFormer UFC lightweight contender Clay Guida will now try his hand at featherweight starting with his next fight inside the Octagon. Guida has long commented about being one of the smallest fighters competing at 155 pounds, but now he’s made the decision to move down a weight class.

Guida’s management team at VFD Sports Marketing made the announcement on Friday.

“The Carpenter is going to explore a new job site at the 145-pound division in the new year. I plan on making a run at the foreman or superintendent position right out of the gates. I hope you guys packed a lunch,” said Guida.

“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.”

Guida has faced the stiffest competition the lightweight division has thrown at him over the years, and he’s always been a top ten contender despite giving up size to the majority of his opponents.

Now Guida will enter the fray at 145 pounds and looks to make an immediate impact with his first fight kicking off in 2013.
