MMAjunkie is reporting that Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez and Clay “Carpenter” Guida have verbally agreed to fight on The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale on June 20.

Diego Sanchez recently defeated Joe “Daddy’ Stevenson at UFC 95 in London after making the switch to the lightweight division. Clay Guida split decisioned¬† Nate Diaz on UFC 94 and improves his UFC record to 6-2.

The frenetic pace of Guida will surely be discussed, although the effectiveness of that pace can be questioned as he put on a subpar performance against Nate. It looks like the UFC is banking on these guys to bring their A game and entertain the crowd. I’m looking forward to seeing them do that. Is the road to a UFC lighweight title shot begin with Clay Guida?

    Diego is a TUF winner that Dana wants to see make it because he is a well known fighter. Guida is not a “top contender” and it would make sense for Diego to fight Sherk first. But if Florian wins against BJ then he will fight Diego next. If Florian loses I could see Diego getting a title shot if he beats Guida. Either way there is a Sanchez vs. Florian match up in the future.
