Gray Maynard On The Clay Guida Fiasco

Former UFC lightweight contender Gray Maynard rebounded from his first career loss by earning a decision victory over Clay Guida earlier this year.

The fight, however, received more attention for what didn’t happen than for what did. Guida, normally an aggressive fighter, failed to engage with Maynard throughout much of the main event bout.

“It was jut a weird fight,” said Maynard, during an interview with MMA Interviews. “This wasn’t Clay Guida. This isn’t who we prepared for.”

Maynard, who improved to 11-1-1 with the win, was upset because Guida tried to win the fight on points, adding, “it’s stupid that we’re now point-fighting. It was just a dumb fight. I tried to fight; it’s on him.”

The bout was heavily criticized by UFC president Dana White, as he expected nothing short of an action-packed contest.

Maynard will attempt to inch closer to a potential title shot when he takes on Joe Lauzon at UFC 155 this December.
