São Paulo, Brazil – Thiago Tavares needed less than a minute to end Clay Guida’s night early.
UFC Fight Night 77 was held on November 7, 2015 at the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in São Paulo, Brazil. Clay Guida vs. Thiago Tavares took place on the preliminary portion of the card which aired on Fox Sports 1 in the United States and BT Sport in the UK.
Clay “The Carpenter” Guida looked for a takedown around 15 secs into the fight, and that turned out to be his first and only mistake. Tavares immediately secured a guillotine choke along with full guard and started cranking. Guida fought gallantly to get out of the submission, but Tavares was relentless. The Brazilian eventually turned Guida on his back and that was that. Guida was forced to tap 37 seconds into the match.
Thiago Tavares climbs to 20-6-1 with the submission and Guida slips to 32-16.
