Report: BJ Penn to Face Clay Guida Next
By FCF Staff
It looks like BJ Penn is going to fight another of the UFC’s most experienced fighters, as it’s being reported the legend will take on rugged vet, Clay Guida.
The lightweights are expected to fight at UFC 237, May 11th, according to a report from MMA Fighting, which cites multiple sources.
The 40-year-old Penn (16-13-2) is coming off a quick, submission loss to Ryan Hall in December, and hasn’t won a fight now since 2010.
The 37-year-old Guida (34-18), meanwhile, hasn’t fought since he was submitted by Charles Oliveira last summer. Guida is 2-3 in his last 5 bouts.
UFC 237 will be hosted by Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
