Clay Guida vs. Sean Sherk Likely for UFC on Versus in Denver

Clay GuidaLightweights Clay Guida and Sean Sherk will look to bounce back from recent losses when they square off at “UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones” on March 21 in Denver, Colorado. The Northwest Indiana Times reported on Saturday that the matchup was in the works for the Versus-televised event.

Guida (25-11) emerged as a lightweight contender with three-straight wins from 2008 to 2009, including a victory over Nate Diaz, but has since dropped back-to-back fights to top 155-pounders Kenny Florian and Diago Sanchez.

Sherk (33-4-1), a former lightweight champion, is just 1-2 since returning to the UFC after serving a suspensions for steroids, dropping bouts to BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar while picking up a win over Tyson Griffin. “The Muscle Shark” had been scheduled to fight at UFC 108 earlier this month against Jim Miller, but a cut forced him to withdraw from the bout.

UFC on Versus is headlined by Brandon Vera vs. Jon Jones and also features Anthony Johnson vs. John Howard.
