The Non-talked about Fight

In the wake of the Nick Diaz drama and the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix semi-final fights this weekend, Ben Henderson vs Clay Guida is turning into the non-talked about fight. This matchup has been set for November 12 for the UFC on Fox 1 card. I don't know how this fight has managed to fly so far under the radar. This fight will more than likely be a #1 contender fight with the winner getting the next shot at the lightweight crown.

Ben Henderson in coming into this fight riding the momentum of the one sided beating he put on Jim Miller. Clay Guida is riding a 4 fight win streak coming into this fight with his final victim being the former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.

Both of these men are more than deserving of a title shot. Guida the cardio monster who just out works almost every opponent and Henderson who's only loss in the last 4 years came to Anthony Pettis by decision. Whoever wins this fight is sure to be next line for the winner of Edgar/Maynard.

When the event draws nearer, I'll break down the fight. But for now, I just want to mention the unfortunate fact that this has turned into a non-talked about fight. This fight isn't getting the attention it deserves.
