Report: Guida vs. Henderson Winner to Challenge Frankie Edgar in Japan

(Fun fact: Clay Guida has never owned a single piece of silverware.)

According to a new report from MMA Junkie, the UFC plans to give the winner of tomorrow night’s UFC on FOX bout between Clay Guida and Ben Henderson a title shot against lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. Sources indicate that the fight would likely take place at UFC 144 (February 26; Saitama, Japan).

Unfortunately, Guida vs. Henderson won’t be part of the “Velasquez vs. Dos Santos” TV broadcast — which kicks off at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on FOX — but viewers can watch it as part of the undercard stream on Facebook and Currently, Henderson (-250) is a strong favorite over Guida (+236).

Frankie Edgar is coming off his monumental knockout of Gray Maynard at UFC 136 last month. It was the third title retention for Edgar, who hasn’t lost a fight since his sole career defeat against Maynard in April 2008.

UFC 144 marks the first time the UFC has promoted a show in Japan since December 2000. No other bouts have been announced for the event, though Quinton “Rampage” Jackson has already called dibs for a spot on the card.

Guida looks like cash money in the bank at +236. Seriously he looks like money. His face looks like a dead president. That Silver Star shirt looks like a silver dollar. That gold watch looks like a, uh, platinum watch. And that greasy hair looks like... Money dammit, it looks like greasy money hair.

Henderson vs Edgar would be a great fight! Edgar constantly has to face guys significantly bigger than him, but Ben would be one of the first ones in awhile who won't run out of gas by round 2. Though Edgar has shown he is a tough dude to manhandle, even for bigger guys.

I honestly can't believe Guida is that big of a dog in this fight. Maybe they want money to come in on him, but I'd put this fight closer to even, with a slight favorite going to Ben Henderson.

Can't wait for Benderson vs. Frankie Edger. Love Guida but afraid he'll never be the champ.

Guida is always so positive and happy in every picture I see of him. I can't help but think he is a RL version of Good Guy Greg.

Also if that's a Tag Heuer that Clay is rocking I have the same watch, stay classy Clay.

^ Yeah Dana always holds out on us. At this point there really isn't any other choice, pretty soon I think Bendo will be the UFC lightweight champ, but then again Frankie keeps on proving me wrong.

Two days ago DW said he didn't know if Guida v Henderson would be the contender fight. Now we are supposed to believe this?
