After his six-fight win streak was snapped with a unanimous-decision loss to Gray Maynard at UFC 90, Rich Clementi (32-13-1 MMA, 5-4 UFC) looks to return to the win column when he meets fellow lightweight Gleison Tibau (15-6 MMA, 3-3 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 17.

The event takes place Feb. 7 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla.

Spike TV will broadcast a live two-hour main card, but the Clementi-Tibau fight takes place on the night's un-aired preliminary card.

So far....
Joe Lauzon vs. Hermes Franca
Mac Danzig vs. Josh Neer
Amir Sadollah vs. Nick Catone
Cain Velasquez vs. Denis Stojnic
Rich Clementi vs. Gleison Tibau
Kurt Pellegrino vs. Rob Emerson

This card is looking pretty stacked for a UFC Fight Night. A lot of one-sided bouts, but a lot of fighters I want to see in action, especially Amir.

tibau should take it, rich is tough as **** but tibau is considerably more talented, i think he takes the decision.

Im going with Tibau. Don't think it will go the distance I say he gets submitted, but should be a good fight. It's funny if you look at Clementi's record he's lost to Yves Edwards, Marcus Aurelio, Din Thomas, and Roan Carneiro all 4 are ATT fighters and train with Tibau. I like Clementi, but don't think he'll take this one.
