Chad Mendes Re-Booked For UFC On FOX 7, Faces Clay Guida

An interesting featherweight contest has been added to UFC on FOX 7, as former No. 1 contender Chad Mendes will face Clay Guida. MMAjunkie.com first reported the bout on Tuesday.

Mendes (13-1) was scheduled to face Manny Gamburyan later this month at UFC 157, but Gamburyan was forced out with an injury. He has won two straight since a knockout loss to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Guida (30-13) made a successful debut in the weight class with a win over Hatsu Hioki last month via decision. “The Carpenter” is 10-7 in his Octagon career.
