"I have got tremendous respect for Clay after tonight because I haven’t been in a blood barn burner like that since Nick Diaz. I hit Guida with some knees, some kicks and some uppercuts that were right on the button and Guida just kept on coming."
"I was surprised, Guida has got heart. He’s got a couple of hearts because he kept coming in the striking too even though I was landing the more effective strikes and picking my shots."
"Guida is a little Tasmanian Devil. He was in a position to fight me for a reason. Guida earned his shot with wins against Danzig and Diaz. Guida put himself in that place but I was just the more technical fighter that executed the gameplan right. I went in there and was 'The Nightmare'."
