UFC on Fox: Clay Guida Vs. Ben Henderson For Number One Contender

There has been some speculation about who would be receiving the next shot at Frankie Edgar's lightweight title. At the UFC 136 pre-fight press conference Dana White wouldn't commit to naming a number one contender. It was believed that if Melvin Guillard was victorious that evening, he would receive the next shot. Then there were the rumors that Gilbert Melendez would be brought over to the UFC as an immediate title contender. Again, this hasn't happened. Tonight at the UFC on Fox weigh ins, it was announced that the winner of Clay Guida vs. Ben Henderson will be receiving the next shot at the lightweight belt. 

Ben Henderson is the former WEC champion and is riding a two fight win streak since making his UFC debut. He put an absolute beating on Mark Bocek and won a one sided decision over Jim Miller. Guida, a former Strikeforce lightweight champion, is on a four fight win streak including names such as Takanori Gomi and Anthony Pettis

The fight will air on FoxSports.com and Facebook as well as Fox Deportes.
