SafeAuto Insurance had an unforgettable weekend in Atlanta, Georgia as the UFC® invaded the Peach State. The state-minimum auto insurance carrier was the official sponsor of the UFC® 145 Tailgate Party at Centennial Park in the downtown Atlanta area. Thousands of fight fans visited the SafeAuto booth on an overcast Saturday afternoon as a surprise guest arrived to sign autographs.
Clay Guida, an official member of the SafeAuto Fight Team and one of the more recognizable faces in the UFC, signed autographs for three hours for crazed fans at the SafeAuto Insurance booth. Despite the long line, “The Carpenter” signed every last autograph and posed for photos with the patient fans.
“Wow, I wasn’t expecting this type of turnout,” remarked Guida. “It’s humbling to know that thousands of fans are anxious to meet me. I’ve always enjoyed interacting with my fans, the turnout at the SafeAuto Insurance booth today was incredible!”
As the SafeAuto Tailgate Party concluded, fans headed down the street to Phillips Arena for UFC® 145. SafeAuto Fight Team member Travis “Hapa” Brown, was looking to make a lasting impression in the heavyweight division as he took on Chad Griggs. After a vicious knee to the head, Brown was able to take control of Griggs on the ground and force his opponent to tap out midway through the first round en route to victory.
The win by the 6’7 fighter known as the “Flyin Hawaiian” made it known to the fighting community that Brown is a force to be reckoned with in the heavyweight division. A heavyweight bout between Travis Browne (13-0-1 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC) and Ben Rothwell (32-8 MMA, 2-2 UFC) was the most recent addition to this summer’s UFC on FOX 4 fight card. As Travis Browne continues his mission to become the heavyweight champion, SafeAuto Insurance will continue to represent popular fighters in an effort to make mixed martial art fans aware that they are the strongest auto insurance company in the UFC®.

SafeAuto Fight Team
Recently, Clay Guida did what we've all wanted to do to uninsured drivers: politely convince them that maybe they should have some auto insurance, for the sake of others if not themselves. Of course, we're a little surprised that having the number eight lightweight fighter in the world turn up at his door didn't automatically convince our friend Stan to get some insurance, but some people just need a little extra nudge. Apparently, that can be accomplished through massive property damage caused by a popular MMA fighter.
Guida, on the surface, is actually an incredibly intimidating and scary guy. His record is an impressive 29-11, with five knockouts, 15 submissions, and nine decisions. He was the Strikeforce Lightweight Champion, has been featured as the Fight of the Night in UFC four times and Submission of the Night twice, and had a fifteen-win streak. In his most recent fight, he took down the number-one lightweight contender, Anthony Pettis, without breaking a sweat.
Guida has been a part of several other MMA leagues...and he did all of this with MMA as a hobby. He trained and fought in his spare time, and kept food on the table with his day job as a carpenter. Hence “The Carpenter,” his nickname. Yes, he's so tough that full-contact fighting was just something he did to pass the time while his days were occupied with heavy manual labor and complex construction work.
Even when he loses, he's still impressive. For example, his fight with Diego Sanchez, at Ultimate Fighter 9, is the stuff of legends. Guida took an absolute pounding from Sanchez, including a headkick that dropped him to the mat in the first round, and still managed to force the fight to a split decision. In short, he's a tough guy.
But he also has a nice-guy side. For example, when the Illinois High School Sports Association didn't want to pay for a highlight video at the 2011 Illinois wrestling championships, Guida, a former high school wrestler himself who loved the videos, actually paid for it out of his own pocket. He's also very supportive of other MMA fighters from his home state, including his brother Jason.
