"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."[UPDATE] by Nick Thomas - James Wilks, Ross Pearson and Chris Lytle post fight press conference:
"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'."
