UFC on FX 4: Maynard vs. Guida Venue Set


Yesterday we announced the UFC on FX 4 headlining bout between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida, however at the time of the report, all we had was a city and date.

According to a report coming out of pressofatlanticcity.com, the UFC has secured the 2.4 billion dollar resort of Revel, and their 5,500-seat entertainment arena to host the event.

The Revel resort opens to the public on April 2.

UFC on FX 4 is expected to go down in Atlantic City on June 22, however no official announcement has been made by the promotion and a venue has not been made public. The main event between Guida and Maynard is expected to be a five-round affair.

Guida hasn’t seen action since his UFC on FOX 1 defeat at the hands of newly crowned champion, Benson Henderson. The rabid fan favorite lost his chance at fighting Frankie Edgar with the Henderson loss and snapped a four-fight win streak in the process.

Maynard last saw the inside of a cage at last October’s UFC 136 event where he suffered his first official career defeat at the hands of Frankie Edgar. He has since left his home gym at Xtreme Couture and has sought training across the globe in various gyms including Brazil’s Nova Unaio and San Jose’s AKA.

The winner of this fight will find themselves near the top of a very stacked lightweight division.

  4. GET RID OF FITCH says:

    Horrible matcvhup for Guida. Maynard has great wrestling and is a TRUE D-1 all american where Guidas wrestling is all ILLUSION of hair floppinga round making him look like he is working at a rate 10 times what he really is. Maynard outclassees Giuda at every aspect of MMA. If I was maynard i would requeat Guida takes abath as i heard he rarely does living in back of his van on side road. I will hand it Clay is looks like prom queen next to that beast of an animal loser brother who clay clothes , feeds supports his entire existance on this earth. nothing like having an older brotehr that just emabreses you and drags you down. He was hands down the biggest discrace to ever set foot in TUF-UFC training center. If I was clay (who got him that opportunity) i would have kicked him to the curb right there and then and NEVER spoke to him again. Too bad Clay won’t be able to shoulder bump’ n Hump maynard liek he did pettis,

  5. Keoki says:

    WOW!! Great matchup. Hopefully they put on a really good show. Guida usually makes his fights pleasing to watch.
