Clay Guida and Ben Henderson got their wish. They will fight at UFC on FOX 1 on Nov. 12. Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole broke the news.
Within the last hour, verbal agreements reached for Clay Guida to face Ben Henderson at UFC on Fox on Nov. 12.
The fight will likely take the co-main event slot below Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos, but as of now, it’s not guaranteed to actually air on FOX. Despite the situation, Guida’s manager, John Fosco, told MMA Junkie that it’s worth the risk.
“If Velasquez vs. Dos Santos is short, you’re going to see Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida on FOX. It’s a gamble, but we feel it’s worth it.”
It was probably the right call, because MMA Fighting is hearing the UFC is trying to find a way to air the fight in one form or another. If not, it’s probably a safe bet that fans will get to see it online somehow.
