Guida vs Pellegrino set for January??

So it looks like "The Carpenter" and "Batman" will be squaring off, according to strength and conditioning coach Kevin Kearns:
I also went down to NJ to work with Kurt Pellegrino on Burn with Kearns Phase 1 for his fight in January against Clay Guida.
The entire interview is here via
Pellegrino will need all the conditioning possible, because he has occasionally gotten tired and therefore sloppy (see: Nate Diaz, though Diaz also has exceptional BJJ, compared to Guida's decent GnP). His last stoppage victory was against Alberto Crane.
Guida is the extremely popular LW who can't seen to finish fights. He has shown good defense against BJJ in his win over Mac Danzig, to where Danzig wouldn't let it go to the ground. He has successfully finished only two fights in nearly 3 years, but everyone knows he can go all three rounds without tiring. If he's smart, he has been working on his striking.
I personally see Guida outworking Pellegrino to an exciting decision (as usual) because he never stops attacking (one would think an opponent would have figured out how to counter his obvious gameplan). However, Batman did decision Thiago Tavares, so if his gastank is good enough, I could see him squeaking out the win. He'll have to work for it, though.

This is going to be an awesome fight, but I think Guida is getting screwed here. It is a step back fighting Batman, he should be fighting someone ranked higher IMO.

I disagree, actually. Don't let his exciting fights fool you. He's a fairly inconsistent fighter and I think Pellegrino is barely a step back for him. A win over Pellegrino will help him advance in his UFC career for sure, though.

I like this fight I see Guida outworking Pellegrino to a UD. Also I don't think Pellegrino is a step back for Guida.

Two of my many fav lightweights too. This is going to be a great fight! I'm rooting for Kurt though. I think Clay is going to take it with some nasty GnP though

I was never that impressed with Pellegrino until his last fight. If he comes out like that again this time it will be a hell of a fight.

What happened to the Diaz talk? Was that just a rumor?

I like Pellegrino a lot but I say Guida wins decision. Possibly a submission by Pellegrino, but Guida has good sub defense.
