In the last week a proposed lightweight bout between Clay Guida and Nate Diaz has been rumored to headline the UFC and Spike TV’s upcoming live season finale for the eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter on Saturday, December 13.
While the bout was considered by UFC officials at one point, FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned that the fight is currently not expected to take place.
While speaking with a source close to one of the fighters on Thursday, we learned that a foot injury sustained by Guida has made the proposed bout between the two doubtful to be finalized for the TUF 8 finale. It is believed that Guida’s injury could in fact be a fracture, which would almost certainly rule him out of the fight.
While it is yet to be confirmed, Diaz is believed to be anxious to fight before year’s end and it is possible he could still appear in a televised bout on the card against a different opponent. Guida’s immediate fight schedule is uncertain, as we were unable to receive a timetable for his recovery.
As of now, the only bouts certain to take place on the TUF 8 finale are both the light heavyweight and lightweight finals of the show along with a rematch between Anthony Johnson and Kevin Burns.
