Mac Danzig vs. Clay Guida Set to Fight at UFC 87

Though not related to the post-UFC 84 frenzy, this could be a fantastic fight set for UFC’s immediate future. According to a report made by today, TUF-vet Mac Danzig and UFC crowd-favorite Clay Guida are set for a bout on UFC 87: “Seek and Destroy.”

Danzig is fresh out of TUF Season 6 and has a 2-0 record in the UFC with wins over Tommy Speer and, most recently, Mark Bocek.

This fight will be a Danzig’s first real test in the UFC, as Clay Guida has traded with the best of the UFC’s lightweight division. Guida is 3-3 in the organization so far, with wins over Marcus Aurelio and Samy Schiavo.

The bout between Danzig and Guida will go down August 9 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    Tough fight for Danzig. I’d take Guida if forced to pick.

    Stellar card.

    Great match up! I think it will last 60 seconds or go the distance, no in between.

  • paddiosf says:

    Nice, this card is shaping up…I wonder if they’ll get a replacement for Coleman..It’s such short notice..

  • JOe K. says:

    I am gonna try to go to this. It’s only a 6 hour drive. The UFC should hold an event in Milwaukee. Sherron Leggett could fight on the main card!

  • Rich S. says:

    yet another fight where i don’t want to see either of the guys lose.. i can’t avoid these..

    well.. i’d much rather guida progress in the sport right now than danzig..

    let’s hope guida can keep up that furious pace that he’s so famous for.. and avoid the subs..

  • Great match-up. Danzig better be ready to throw some elbows off his back.

  • Devin Miller says:

    The most impressive thing about mac danzig is how he beats the hell out of you while he defends the takedown. This fight will probably go the distance and it will be one of those fights that one fighter gets 3 or 4 takedowns and the other fighter does more damage. I think mac is gonna do more damage on the feet, i see guida having a real hard time getting danzig down, and on the ground i see guida on top in macs guard doing little to no damage. Danzig by u.d.

  • GoreSmasher says:

    I hope Guida takes it, especially after being robbed in the Griffin fight. Guida is an animal. Danzig will have his hands full.
