Alistair Overeem and Brock Lesnar aren't the only ones booking fights today.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has confirmed with sources close to the event that Ben Henderson (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Clay Guida (29-11 MMA, 9-5 UFC) have verbally agreed to fight at UFC on FOX 1, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

Really pulling for Ben, picked against him the last two times.

Plus Guida hasn't been much exciting to me lately.

I'm thinking so as well. Hopefully there will be some decent odds in Bendo's favour.

The UFC is becoming enormous. I can't even imagine how great the cards will be a year or two from now.

You're not the only one

I was very unhappy w/ the Pettis fight. He fought the GSP way..... & I'm a fan of both

I hope Ben knocks him out cold with that nasty GnP, then Guida can watch the tape and learn how you play in top position inside the guard or half guard

Yeah Guida will have a challenge if it goes to the ground. I'm hoping he will dominate on the standup game though. The Carpenter is rugged...I wouldn't count him out so easily.

Maybe he can watch tape of himself when he choked out Gugerty and Dos Anjos(more of an injury, but still) with an arm-triangle. That's such a terrible strategy to go for chokes in top position. He's had one decision in his last five fights.

That being said, it's always hard for me to pick against Guida. This is another fantastic job by Joe Silva. Both guys are red hot right now. This has barn burner written all over it! I can't wait!

This.

Some people are just born haters, bro. There are a few people around here that I find it impossible to take seriously. It's to the point where their opinions provide comic relief for me.
