fighters react to jiu-jitsu ace Leonardo Santos’ insane submission by Clay Guida – .


Clay Guida will be celebrating his 40th birthday next week.

The festivities started early for the veteran of 32 Octagon appearances as he scored one of the most incredible submissions of the year on Saturday at UFC Vegas 44, forcing multiple Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion Leonardo Santos to withdraw in the second round of their fight. To make the finish even more incredible, Guida was about to be pushed back by a flurry of strikes from Santos in the first round.

Referee Keith Peterson kept the fight going and Guida – in classic Guida fashion – showed his relentless heart and gas tank, returning to subdue an exhausted Santos. In doing so, Guida became the first fighter to subdue Santos, whose pro MMA career dates back to 2002.

Suffice it to say, the MMA community were thrilled with Guida’s performance and many took to Twitter to share their thoughts. Find out what the veteran’s peers had to say about his huge win.
