Veteran Clay Guida To Face Rising Claudio Puelles At April 23rd UFC Card

Experienced MMA fighter Clay Guida will return to action at UFC’s April 23rd event, facing Claudio Puelles in a lightweight bout. This fight was first confirmed by Fordewin MMA on Friday.

The fight joins a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.

Guida, a UFC fighter of over a decade, was active last year with three fights. He finished his year with a submission win, stopping fellow veteran Leonardo Santos in the second round via rear naked choke.

The matchup provides a big challenge for Puelles while he slowly rises up the lightweight division. Puelles is now on a strong four-fight winning streak in the UFC that has been developing since 2018.

Puelles scored two wins in 2021, beating Jordan Leavitt via unanimous decision and submitting Chris Gruetzemacher in December.
