Kenny Florian Vs. Clay Guida At Ufc 107

A rumored lightweight tilt between Kenny Florian and Clay Guida will take place on Dec. 12 at UFC 107.

Reports in late August tabbed the match-up for UFC 106 on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas, but MMAWeekly.com sources say it's been rescheduled for the following pay-per-view card. Though bout agreements have not been signed, both fighters have agreed to the contest and are expected to finalize the deal soon.

An update from MMA Live's Twitter account, which keeps close ties with show co-host Florian, also confirmed the change Wednesday afternoon.

The change bolsters the lineup for UFC 107, expected for the FedEx Forum in Memphis, after the card's main event, Quinton Jackson vs. Rashad Evans, was stricken from the event when Jackson's obligation to the upcoming movie "The A-Team" created a scheduling snafu. Last week, UFC president Dana White confirmed a lightweight title fight between champion B.J. Penn and Diego Sanchez as the southern card's other main draw.

Florian (15-4) fell short in his bid to wrest the title from Penn at UFC 101 last month, losing by rear naked choke in the fourth round. He had not lost since a first shot at the belt against Sean Sherk in October 2006, amassing six straight victories on his road back to contention. An alum of the original "The Ultimate Fighter," where he fought as a middleweight, Florian fought as a welterweight two times before making his original run for the revamped title.

Guida (25-10) saw his three-fight win streak broken against contender Sanchez, fighting a brutal war of attrition with the original TUF alum in a June appearance at the Season 9 finale of the show. Long considered one of the toughest competitors in the division, Guida has gone 5-4 in the Octagon since making his debut at UFC 64, the same card Florian got his title shot.


This should be a fun fight to watch. Can Kenny beat Guida in the same fashion that Diego did? I don't think it will be anything like the Diego vs. Clay fight. It will be a tough fight for Guida though with the fact that Kenny likes to back peddle and counter a lot. I'd say Kenny wins by Decision.

The ways I see Kenny winning is by cut stoppage or decision. I don't see a tko ko or submission. Kenny is definitely the favorite, but if Clay can Sherk him it'll be a long night for Kenny.

Bad matchup for Kenny. I think he is gonna get the Sherk treatment in this fight. It will be alot closer, but I see Guida winning a decision.

Well, the question is whether Kenny will go into that fight like his fight with Penn, thinking he is a top level wrestler, or if he will use what he is good at and keep it standing with sick MT?

I'm not gonna lie... Kenny's Gameplan against Penn was atrocious.

I thought it was a good plan actually.

He really had no other way to win. He wasnt going to stand and trade with BJ. Everytime they exchanged he got rocked.

I think his only hope was winning by pushing the pace and nullifying BJ's stregnths. Bj really couldnt do anything when he was against the fence. Any other strategy and Kenny woulda been finished way earlier.

LOL! So true. I was rooting for BJ all the way so it made me happy, but Ken-flo's plan of attack confused the hell out of me when I was watching it. It was a badly mimicked execution of GSP's game plan against BJ, where GSP pushed on BJ's shoulder's to wear out his delt strength/endurance, Kenny was pushing on BJ's stomach. People tried to convince me Kenny was trying to wear out BJ's breath, but we breath through our lungs, not the small intestines.

It would have been a good gameplan for someone else, like GSP, but it was a terrible gameplan for Kenny.

Kenny's never been one to neutralise wrestlers, this coupled with Guidas un-relenting pace means it's gonna be a tough fight for Florian. I think Guida takes the decision.
