A lightweight matchup between top 155-pounders Kenny Florian and Clay Guida is likely for UFC 106 on November 21 in Las Vegas, according to Fanhouse’s Michael David Smith.
Florian (11-4) won six-straight fights over the likes of Joe Lauzon, Roger Huerta, and Joe Stevenson to earn a shot at the lightweight title, but was submitted by champ BJ Penn in the fourth-round of their bout at UFC 101 earlier this month.
Guida (25-10) dropped a split decision to lightweight contender Diego Sanchez in his most-recent fight in June after previously winning three-straight against Samy Schiavo, Mac Danzig, and Nate Diaz.
UFC 106 is headlined by heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin and also features Tito Ortiz’s return to the Octagon against Mark Coleman and Jon Fitch vs. Ricardo Almeida.
