UFC 125 Results: Clay Guida Submits Takanori Gomi

Clay Guida has long been a fan favorite in the UFC but he has never reached the heights that Takanori Gomi had achieved during his heyday in PRIDE. Even much faded from his best days Gomi was picked by many fans and experts to get the win. Clay Guida had other ideas.

From the opening bell Guida moved around the ring quickly feinting in and out and causing Gomi to hesitate and have a lot of trouble finding his timing to land his trademark punches. Through the first round it was actually Guida that landed the better strikes with headkicks and right hands. And in the second things continued along pretty much the same until Gomi timed a knee as Guida shot in. Clay powered through the knee and got the takedown where he worked from the top position until Gomi attempted to sit up and Guida locked up a guillotine choke and forced Gomi to tap out.

This was, without a doubt, the biggest win of Clay Guida's career and he continues to show a very improved submission game since moving his training to Greg Jackson's camp.
