UFC on FOX 1: Ben Henderson vs Clay Guida booked for Nov. 12 network TV debut

via cdn2.sbnation.com

If you thought a lightweight clash pitting Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida was headed to UFC on FOX 1, the promotion's network television debut on Nov. 12, 2011, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, pat yourself on the back because you nailed it.

A source close to one of the fight camps confirmed the planned match-up to MMAmania.com a short time ago.

There's no word just yet on whether or not this will be a lightweight number one contender bout but it would seem to make the most sense considering the current landscape of the loaded 155-pound division.

Henderson is fresh on the heels of derailing the Jim Miller hype train and spoiling his title plans by dominating him at UFC on Versus 5 for three whole rounds.

If he does the same to Guida will he be worthy of a shot at the winner of Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard?

Guida also played spoilsport to Anthony Pettis, who had actually earned himself a chance at the lightweight championship but chose to fight in lieu of waiting around.

Unfortunately for "Showtime," that meant a war against the energetic caveman and "The Carpenter" used his superior wrestling to send him to the back of the line, catapulting himself to the front of it in the process.

He's ripped off four wins in a row now and if he makes it five at the expense of Henderson, it will become increasingly more difficult to justify not giving him a title shot.

UFC on FOX 1 will mark the promotion's debut on network television on Nov. 12, 2011 and will feature Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez defending his title for the first time ever against division number one contender and noted knockout artist Junior dos Santos.

The only other fight booked for the card is a match-up between Dustin Poirier and Pablo Garza.

The card, which is just over two months away, is sure to fill up quickly, so stay tuned to MMAmania.com for all the fight announcements as they happen.
