A match between two lightweight veterans is reportedly headed to the December 4th card. According to Clay Guida’s Instagram, he is now expected to take on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 champion Leonardo Santos at UFC Fight Night 199.

In his last outing, Guida (36-21) dropped a split decision to Mark Madsen, back in August. The 39-year-old’s most recent win occurred when he picked up a unanimous decision victory against Michael Johnson in February.

Also in need of a win, Santos (18-4-1) got knocked out by Grant Dawson in his last match, back in March. Before that, the 41-year-old was undefeated in the Octagon, with seven wins and one draw, including victories over notable names such as Kevin Lee, Stevie Ray and Anthony Rocco Martin.

Now, Guida is expected to take on Santos at UFC Fight Night 199, on December 4. The card is scheduled to be headlined by a bantamweight bout between top contenders Jose Aldo and Rob Font at the UFC Apex, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
