Clay Guida v. Shannon Gugerty Stuck On Undercard of UFC on Versus

MMA Mania with the news:

Just weeks after winning “Fight of the Year” at the 2009 World MMA Awards, Clay Guida (25-11) has been relegated to the preliminary card in his next fight against Shannon Gugerty (12-4) at the upcoming UFC on Versus 1 event from the Odeum Colorado in Broomfield on March 21.

The UFC isn’t messing around with the UFC on Versus card. It’s got some really great fights and is solid enough that fan favorite Clay Guida can’t even break the main card.

Hopefully Versus and DirecTV can figure things out so that there isn’t a large segment of fans who are left unable to watch the promotion’s first show on the network.

Shannon Gugerty Replaces Sean Sherk Against Clay Guida

Well, that was quick. With Sean Sherk out of the rumored bout with Clay Guida at UFC on Versus it looks like the promotion has already tapped Shannon Gugerty as a replacement. From MMA Junkie:

The March 21 bout was recently described as “abandoned” by FiveOuncesOfPain.com, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed that Sherk was removed from the potential matchup for undisclosed reasons.

However, MMAjunkie.com confirmed Friday that Shannon Gugerty (12-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) has agreed to step in for “The Muscle Shark” and face Guida.

Verbal agreements are in place for both fighters, though bout agreements have yet to be distributed.

Gugerty/Guida is hardly on the same level as Guida/Sherk but it should provide a decent chance for the always hard working Clay to bounce back strong from his lopsided loss to Kenny Florian and his fight of the year contender with Diego Sanchez.

Shannon is coming off a submission loss to Terry Etim at UFC 105.
