Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Clay Guida will continue his quest for featherweight relevancy when he throws hands opposite Dennis Bermudez at the upcoming UFC on FOX 12 event, scheduled for the SAP Center in San Jose, California, on July 26, 2014.
FOX Sports brought word of the 145-pound pairing earlier today.
After getting stopped in the third round by a resurgent Chad Mendes back in August, Guida (31-14) rebounded with a unanimous decision win over Tatsuya Kawajiri last month in Abu Dhabi. "The Carpenter" stands at 2-1 since dropping to featherweight, which includes a split decision win over Hatsu Hioki at UFC on FOX 6.
He's got his work cut out for him.
Bermudez (13-3) got off to a rocky start after graduating from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14, succumbing to a Diego Brandao submission, but has looked invincible ever since. "The Menace" is riding a six-fight winning streak and recently beat the brakes off Jim Hettes in Dallas.
Could we be looking at a future title contender?
UFC on FOX 12 is shaping up to be a stellar fight card, thanks to the addition of Anthony Johnson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. In addition, Josh Thomson will jump back into the fray when he collides with Michael Johnson at the network-televised event.
Stay tuned for more UFC on FOX 12 fight announcements in the coming weeks.
