Grant Crushes Wiman

Guida Edges Hioki
Clay Guida marked a successful featherweight debut by defeating the highly regarded Hatsu Hioki via split decision. Guida seemingly picked up the split decision victory on the basis of his powerful takedowns. Hioki provided all kinds of trouble for Guida in the standup and also put the hometown fighter on the defensive once the fight hit the ground.
