Fans crossing their fingers that UFC lightweights Ben Henderson and Clay Guida would collide on FOX in November may have originally had their hopes dashed when the live broadcast was revealed to only be featuring a single fight, but as it turns out the two talented 155ers will still meet at the event despite any concerns about the show’s allotted airtime.
Guida has been working his way towards a title-shot for the last two years with a quartet of consecutive wins including a submission of Takanori Gomi on New Year’s Day and Unanimous Decision over top contender Anthony Pettis in June at the Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale. He also holds past victories over Mac Danzig and Nate Diaz.
Former WEC champ Henderson has also been on a tear as of late with back-to-back wins since joining the UFC’s roster earlier this year. The 27-year old “Bendo” holds an overall record of 14-2 and looked better than ever last month en route to handing Jim Miller the third loss of his career.
