Clay Guida out of UFC on Fox 7 fight with Chad Mendes following undisclosed injury

Clay Guida out of UFC on Fox 7 fight with Chad Mendes following undisclosed injury

Chad Mendes is once again left without an opponent following an undisclosed injury to Clay Guida. The two were scheduled to fight on the UFC on Fox 7 preliminary card.


Apparently everyone who trains for a Chad Mendes fight ends up with an injury. For an incredible 3rd time in as many months, Mendes' original opponent has been forced off the card. In December his fight with Hacran Dias was canceled, likewise for February's contest with Manny Gamburyan, and as of today you can add Clay Guida to the list. Sherdog has the story:

Chad Mendes is once again without an opponent, as Clay Guida has suffered an undisclosed injury and will be unable to compete at UFC on Fox 7.

Sherdog.com recently confirmed the development with sources close to the situation, who verified that Mendes is still expected to compete at the April 20 event from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., though the search for a new opponent has apparently not gone well.

I cannot even recall the last time Guida was injured and had to withdraw from any fight, so this is just an incredible run of bad luck for Mendes. UFC officials found a replacement in December for Dias (Yaotzin Meza), but didn't have one for Gamburyan at UFC 157, and it looks like the new search for an opponent for UFC on Fox 7 on April 20th is not promising. So worst case scenario Mendes is looking at his 2nd straight outright removal from an event because of an injury to his original opponent and a lack of a suitable replacement.

Clay was probably afraid he couldn't use his pathetic little lay and pray that fight. What a joke.

That's what really sucks about this.. I'm 99% sure Mendes would of beat the crap out Clay Guida. Then Guida would of been on the bubble on being cut with all the hate he gets for fighting like a bitch.

Guida will be cut within 1 year....
