Clay Guida

There are so many memories that you can name while Clay Guida is at his prime fighting in the UFC. He is entering this match at 39 years old and even if he has lost four of his last six fights, fans can always remember him fighting through until the end. Most of his fights right now go to the judges’ scorecards and the last time he finished a match early was way back in November 2017 against Joe Lauzon. Expect Guida to be tough as nails and Leonardo Santos should try to earn every point to win. ‘The Carpenter’ now owns an impressive 36-21 professional MMA record and 15 of those wins came from decisions while 13 are submissions.

Leonardo Santos

Leonardo Santos is a few years ahead of Clay Guida at 41-years-old but he seems to be aging like wine. His most recent match ended up in a third-round knockout but prior to that, he has not tasted a defeat since May 2009 and has won almost all of his bouts in the UFC. It is still a wonder how Santos has lasted inside the cage at 41 but he seems to still have it, making Dawson really earn the victory over him. Among the memorable fights that he had were against Kevin Lee, Steven Ray and Antony Rocco Martin. Santos has only lost four times in his 22 professional bouts.
