It looks like Gray Maynard will make his much-discussed return to the octagon on June 22nd in Atlantic City, and his opponent will be a tough, grinding wrestler like himself. And it will be a five-rounder. Here's what the UFC had to say:
Maynard is coming off a loss to Frankie Edgar at UFC 136 in the third bout between the two. The loss was the first of Maynard's career, and he has significantly changed up his training since then by going to Brazil and working with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in addition to joining American Kickboxing Academy. Guida is coming off a loss as well, dropping a tough decision to Ben Henderson at UFC on Fox in November.
The bout will serve as the main event of the night.
