It must have been busy at the UFC offices in Las Vegas today. Shortly after the news broke that the promotion had signed Alistair Overeem and he would be making his UFC debut against Brock Lesnar on December 30, came the news that Clay Guida and Ben Henderson had agreed to meet on the inaugural UFC on Fox card.
Henderson, the former WEC Lightweight Champion, is coming off a dominating win over the man that many thought was next in line for a UFC Lightweight title shot, Jim Miller. Henderson earned a unanimous decision over Miller on August 14 and served notice that he was a legitimate contender in the UFC.
For his part, Guida is on a four fight winning streak, earning a unanimous decision victory over Anthony Pettis in his last fight on June 4. Pettis was the fighter that wrested the WEC title from Henderson at WEC 53.
At this time the UFC on FOX card, which will take place on November 12 in Anaheim is currently scheduled to broadcast only one fight, the Heavyweight title bout between that will see Cain Velasquez put his title on the line against Junior dos Santos.
