Clay Guida gives Anthony Pettis all the props in the world even though he’s a bad match-up for him

The ever energetic, Clay Guida says he’s a bad match-up for his TUF 13 finale opponent, Anthony Pettis when they later this year, but not before giving “Showtime” props for stepping up and not waiting around for a title shot.

Guida, speaking via ESPN.com, said:

“I give Anthony Pettis all the props in the world for not sitting around and waiting for the winner of Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard. I respect the fact that he’s stepping up the competition after coming off a great win against Ben Henderson to fight someone like myself. I’m a bad matchup for him. I’m a bad matchup for most of my opponents. You know you’re going to have to be in shape.”

“You know you’re going to have to be able to stop a takedown or get your own takedown. You know you’re going to have to strike a little. You’re going to have to do a little of everything, but I do it just a little better than everyone. It’s not pretty; my fighting style is definitely not that technical. But I’ve tightened up my game in those areas that were needed to get me to that next level and compete with the top guys.”
