Clay Guida will look to get back on track against likely opponent Samy Schiavo when the UFC returns to Denver, Colorado for the first time since the first Ultimate Ultimate tournament in 1995.
The news comes from a report by MMA Weekly who have learned that although bout agreements have not yet been signed, the fight is expected to take place.
The event is expected to serve as a lead-in for the debut of the seventh season of The Ultimate Fighter where current UFC light heavyweight Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and the number one contender for his title, Forrest Griffin will serve as coaches.
Guida is coming off of a tough loss against fellow lightweight contender Roger Huerta in a 2007 fight of the year candidate at The Ultimate Fighter 5 Finale. Even though Guida sports a losing record inside the UFC, he remains one of the promotion’s most popular and exciting fighters.
Schiavo’s trainer and manager announced that his client had signed a four-fight deal with the UFC earlier this month. After dropping three fights in a row earlier in his carrer, Schiavo is currently riding a six-fight winning streak. His last fight was a submission win over Paul Jenkins at a Cage Rage Contenders show in September.
