Do you remember that scene in Fight Club where Edward Norton completely smashes in Jared Leto’s face, and afterwards says “ ” target=”_blank”>I wanted to destroy something beautiful.” Well now, Clay Guida has the opportunity to destroy something beautiful. In a move that will completely validate the existence of the Ultimate Fighter season six, the UFC has booked Clay Guida vs Roger Huerta to headline the finale.
You’ve read it right: Guida vs Huerta. How many times have people asked for this one? How many times have they said “Huerta’s okay, but just wait till they put him against someone like Clay Guida”? And every time someone would say something like that, I would think “Yeah right, like the UFC is gonna put their Hispanic poster boy up against a hippy meat grinder like Clay Guida.”
Now they have, and I can’t help but be excited. As much as I try to hate Huerta for being a pretty boy, I can’t help but respect him as a fighter. That won’t stop me from enjoying Guida crush him. Huerta has shown he has the skills to hang in the UFC, but not against a guy like Guida who is destined to be the Karo Parisyan of the lightweight division: always a threat to everyone, but never managing to get a shot at the belt.
