Clay Guida is committed to helping those affected by Hurricane Ian. 

Hurricane Ian was a Category 4 hurricane that destroyed parts of South Florida. Among those affected were Guida’s parents. Luckily, they survived with minimal damage, but ‘The Carpenter’ struggled with the potential for his family to be harmed while he was training for a fight. 

Guida has stepped up to help those in need. The longtime UFC lightweight has begun selling t-shirts to assist those who lost their homes or other personality property. During an interview with WINK News, ‘The Carpenter’ had this to say:

“We’re fighting for our community. Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Lee County, Cape Coral, where my family lives… UFC and Vayner Sports, Gills & Thrills with Guida & Wrestling is Life Foundation teamed up to come up with Fight for Florida… The red, white, and blue Fight for Florida state flag here mark where the hurricane ripped through”

According to WINK, 144 Floridians passed away because of Hurricane Ian. Although those lives can’t be replaced, the efforts from Guida can help rebuild some of South Florida. ‘The Carpenter’ has roughly gathered $10,000 for the cause. The 41-year-old MMA fighter has once again proved to be a humble person.

What’s next for Clay Guida?

It’s difficult to tell how much Clay Guida has left in the tank. ‘The Carpenter’ started 2022 with a disappointing first-round submission loss, which sparked questions about his longevity. Guida silenced those doubts by defeating Scott Holtzman by a split decision in December. The question is, what’s next for the UFC veteran? 

During the aftermath of UFC Orlando, Guida made it clear that he’s chasing UFC records and doesn’t plan on retiring anytime soon. The UFC could go two different ways. They could give ‘The Carpenter’ another veteran like a Joe Lauzon rematch or test the 41-year-old against another young rising contender. 

Guida made his UFC debut in 2006 with a second-round submission against Justin James. Since then, ‘The Carpenter’ has built an 18-16 promotional record. The Illinois native is creeping up on several UFC records, including wins (4th), control time (3rd), and takedowns (3).
