UFC Mainstays Clay Guida, Joe Lauzon To Finally Square Off at UFC Fight Night 120 in Virginia
By: Jordan Breen Aug 28, 2017
It is hard to fathom given their lengthy tenures in the Ultimate
Fighting Championship, but Clay Guida and
Lauzon have never squared off. That's due to change.
The UFC announced on Monday that a lightweight bout between Guida
and Lauzon had been added to the UFC
Fight Night 120 event, set for Nov. 11 at the Ted Constant
Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va., though its position on the card
has not be announced.
Guida, 35, made his UFC debut with a second-round submission of
James at UFC 64 in October 2006. Including his 23 Octagon bouts
since, “The Carpenter” has posted a 13-11 record. After dropping to
145 pounds in January 2013, Guida went 3-4 as a featherweight,
returning to the lightweight division this past June and upsetting
Koch via unanimous decision.
The 33-year-old Lauzon has also fought 24 times in the Octagon,
beginning with his own successful debut in September 2006,
upsetting former UFC lightweight king Jens Pulver in
a 48-second knockout. “J-Lau” sports a 14-10 UFC mark, but has
alternated wins and losses over his last eight contests. After a
contentious split-decision win over Poland's Marcin Held
in January, Lauzon dropped a majority verdict to Scotland's
Ray in April.
UFC Fight Night 120 is airs live on Fox Sports 1 and is scheduled
to be headlined by a 155-pound bout between former UFC champion
Pettis and contender Dustin
