UFC On FX 3 Will Feature Five Rounds Between Gray Maynard, Clay Guida

An interesting match in the UFC’s lightweight division has been signed, as the promotion announced Sunday night that Gray Maynard and Clay Guida would do battle in the main event of UFC on FX 3. The card is scheduled for June 22 from Atlantic City, New Jersey.

With both fighters coming off defeats, this five-round war will be a much-needed victory for either “The Bully” or “The Carpenter.”

Maynard had his undefeated MMA record come to a screeching halt at the hands of Frankie Edgar, as the then-UFC lightweight champion ended their trilogy with a knockout.

Guida’s last bout inside the Octagon also resulted in a loss, as his four-fight win streak was snapped by current-UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson.

This division is one of the deepest and most talented in the UFC, so a loss here would mean a trip to the back of the line. The winner, meanwhile, would likely remain in contention for a future title shot with another victory or two.
