Several fighters have been a part of UFC’s history through some of the memorable knockouts and wins. But very few have done it several times, and one of them is Clay Guida. While his UFC record is 5 wins and 4 setbacks (to round out a total of 25-7 as a professional), three of those losses are close and legendary: against Tyson Griffin at UFC 72, against Roger Huerta in the final of The Ultimate Fighter 6 and before Diego Sánchez in the final of the ninth season of reality.
