By: Tristen Critchfield May 19, 2021
A lightweight clash pitting Clay Guida
against Mark O.
Madsen is in the works for an Ultimate Fighting Championship
event on Aug. 21.
Danish outlet ViaRitzau
was first to report the booking, and
MMAFighting.com later confirmed that verbal agreements are in
place for the bout. The UFC Fight Night card is expected to be
headlined by a middleweight duel between Paulo Costa
Cannonier but does not have an official location.
The 39-year-old Guida has 56 professional fights under his belt. In
his last outing, “The Carpenter” snapped a two-bout losing streak
at UFC Fight Night 184, where he outpointed Michael
Johnson on Feb. 6.
An Olympic silver medalist in Greco-Roman wrestling, Madsen has
began his professional MMA tenure with 10 straight victories. The
Danish lightweight debuted in the Octagon with a first-round TKO of
Belluardo before outpointing Austin
Hubbard at UFC 248.
