Nate Diaz to face Clay Guida at UFC 94

"The Ultimate Fighter 5" winner Nate Diaz will take on Clay Guida on Saturday, Jan. 31 at UFC 94: St-Pierre vs. Penn 2 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Diaz's camp made the fight announcement Friday evening on its website.

The UFC had planned for the lightweight scrap as the main event for "The Utlimate Fighter 8 Finale" on Dec. 13, but a foot injury suffered by Guida pushed the fight back.

Diaz (10-2) has won all five of his UFC fights, and his most recent one, a split decision, was the only fight that didn't result in a submission win. The Stockton native has defeated in the UFC Josh Neer, Kurt Pellegrino, Alvin Robinson, Junior Assuncao and Manny Gamburyan.

Guida (24-6) will look to defeat two straight "The Ultimate Fighter" winners. In his last fight Guida won a unanimous decision over season six winner Mac Danzig.

170 lbs. | Georges St. Pierre vs. BJ Penn
