After three consecutive victories, a title shot in the UFC lightweight division has weighed heavily on the mind of SafeAuto Fight Team Member Clay Guida. His bout against Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, famously known for his “kick heard ‘round the world,” was the opponent that Guida needed to defeat in order to get his championship shot. “The Carpenter” delivered with a unanimous victory at The Pearl at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday evening. He greatly utilized his wrestling skills to pull off the upset victory.
The fourth consecutive victory for Guida doesn’t guarantee a title shot for “The Carpenter.” Ben Henderson, Jim Miller and Melvin Guillard are also in the mix for the Lightweight Title. “Everyone who sees me fight knows I fight the toughest competition. I’d love to get that shot,” said Guida. Putting together four straight wins is extremely rewarding for the fighter who resides out of an RV in New Mexico. In 2009 he had lost two straight fights and heard the whispers that he was past his prime. Clay Guida delivered during his fight on Saturday evening just as SafeAuto Insurance delivers on providing state minimum auto insurance coverage to drivers. In addition to having the red SafeAuto logo visible on his trunks as he swept the judges’ scorecards on Saturday, Guida will be starring in a national SafeAuto Insurance commercial that has just been released.

Travis Browne Earns Knockout Victory
Travis Browne was upset when the SafeAuto cameras sat down with him for an exclusive video interview in San Diego, California. The heavyweight fighter who goes by the nickname “Hapa,” which refers to his Hawaiian heritage, was disappointed with his draw against Cheick Kongo at UFC® 120. Instead of making excuses, the 6’7 fighter wanted revenge. He was confident that the UFC® 130 bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada against Stephan Struve was where he could redeem himself. Browne converted on his promise and delivered one of the most memorable punches in UFC history during the main card of UFC 130. The Superman punch received “Knockout of the Night” and sent his six-foot-11-inch opponent opponent sprawling to the mat, out cold. The replay of Browne’s punch was repeatedly shown on ESPN’s SportsCenter as it received the #3 top play the following day. The victory for Browne solidifies his stance as a UFC® heavyweight contender. He was appreciative that SafeAuto Insurance stepped up to the plate and sponsored him during the monumental fight. “We’re in some of the best shape of any athletes out there, and I think SafeAuto understands that and they see that.” Browne exclaimed. “It’s nice that we get a chance to represent SafeAuto.” Matt Hamill’s Solid Effort Not Enough Versus Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
Matt Hamill was unable to connect on all of his takedown attempts against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. Despite going the distance, “Rampage” was awarded with the unanimous decision victory in the light heavyweight affair. SafeAuto Insurance was proud to sponsor Matt “The Hammer” Hamill at UFC® 130. Even though Hamill was unable to pull off the victory, the SafeAuto Fight Team went 1-1 on the evening.
