Clay Guida and Takanori Gomi are expected to meet in what should be an exciting lightweight scrap at UFC 125. Guida revealed the news over the weekend on ESPN 1100 radio in Chicago.
“It’s time for ‘The Dude’ to get back into camp and get ready to take down Takanori Gomi, one of my favorite fighters growing up and watching MMA,” he revealed on ESPN 1100’s MMA Tonight. “I look up to him and I’m gonna look up to picking him up off of the ground after I ground and pound him into the canvas.”
“I’m gonna beat him to the punch. I’m gonna take him down and implement my game plan,” said Guida.
Guida-Gomi makes a nice addition to a line-up that already includes Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard, Shane Carwin vs. TBD (possibly Roy Nelson), Thiago Silva vs. Brandon Vera, Chris Leben vs. Brian Stann, Nate Diaz vs. Dong Hyun Kim and Antonio McKee vs. Jacob Volkmann. Definitely a strong card to look forward to on New Year’s.
