The three will visit U.S. troops and their families deployed in Italy from December 12-20, signing autographs, taking pictures and putting some MMA clinics.
"Words can't explain how excited and honored I am to be one of the few and lucky fighters to be selected to go visit and support the troops on this USO tour. It will be very a memorable experience visiting my ancestors' home country," Guida said in the event release. "It’s all about the troops. Our freedom is not free. We fight for them because they put their lives on the line for us. Words just cant explain how much this mean to me."
For 70 years, the USO has provided entertainment for U.S. troops around the world and there has long been a tie with MMA as fighters like Tito Ortiz, Mike Swick, Kyle Kingsbury, Ed Herman and Chris Leben have contributed time.
