A lightweight bout pitting Clay Guida and Erik Koch is the latest addition to UFC Fight Night 112. The news was reported on Wednesday by UFC Tonight.

Guida will be leaving the featherweight division where he put together a record of 3-4 and will be making a move back up to the 155-pound weight class in hopes to snap a two-fight skid. The Team Alpha Male fighter last fought this past June at UFC 199 where he suffered a knockout loss to Brian Ortega. Guida, 35, is 32-17 as a professional fighter and 12-11 in the UFC.

Good fight, but kind of an odd match up. Clay still has the name recognition but isn't a contender in any weight class with on 3 wins in his last 9 fights. That said I would think he'd go for an older opponent with name recognition like himself for a good payday. This match up makes me think he's trying to get back in contention by taking on a young talented guy in Koch, either that or the UFC simply wouldn't offer him a better fight.
