Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale: Clay Guida vs. Roger Huerta

clay guida vs roger huerta tuf 6 finale
Clay Guida (22-8) will fight Roger Huerta (19-1) in a lightweight showdown at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6 Finale on December 8 at The Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Guida confirmed the clash with Jesse Holland from this afternoon, saying that the bout agreements for the main event were inked last night.

"I'm going to train for this fight like no other because I know a win over a competitor like Roger in front of a national audience puts me near the top of the division," said Guida. "Roger is a friend, but when that bell rings it's going to be all business."

And even though Guida has had some recent trouble stopping opponents, "The Carpenter" says that trend will end against "El Matador."

"I'm going to finish Roger," said Guida. "It's already in my mind that I'm going to make a statement with this fight."

Guida -- known for his seemingly endless amount of energy -- has put on a show during each of his four fights inside the Octagon. And even though he has a deceptive record (2-2) in those contests, he's proven that he is among the top 155 pound fighters.

In his most recent bout, Guida earned a split-decision win over Marcus Aurelio at UFC 74: "Respect" in August.

Huerta is undefeated (5-0) in the UFC since his arrival in 2006. He's also been one of the busiest fighters in the organization -- this will be his fifth fight in 2007.

With a win over Guida -- his stiffest test to date inside the Octagon -- Huerta will no doubt be knocking on the door of a title shot come early 2008.

Talk about a great match up.
