Just weeks after winning "Fight of the Year" at the 2009 World MMA Awards, Clay Guida has been matched up in a fight that could very well be one of the best of 2010.
"The Carpenter," who has become one of the UFC's more popular fighters because of his relentless attack and never say die attitude, will likely take on Sean "The Muscle Shark" Sherk at UFC Fight Night 21 in Denver, Colo., according to NWItimes.com.
Sherk had to drop off UFC 108 on Jan. 2 after receiving a nasty gash across his forehead. "The Muscle Shark" last fought at UFC 98, getting dominated on the feet en route to unanimous decision defeat at the hands Frankie Edgar.
Guida has made a name for himself with his high-energy performances ... and the fans love to see him fight. He is on a two-fight skid; however, he still manages to get a fight with the former lightweight champion. Guida will certainly look for a better outcome than his fights with Kenny Florian and Diego Sanchez.
UFC Fight Night 21 has yet to be officially announced, but this lightweight bout will likely be featured on the Versus telecast. Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for breaking news and updates surrounding UFC Fight Night 21.
