Guida & Palaszewski Booked for Fights in April
Less than twenty-four hours after the announcement of Travis Browne vs. Gabriel Gonzaga for the upcoming TUF 17 Finale event, two more bouts involving VFD Marketing fighters came into public knowledge this afternoon.
Fresh off his victory over Hatsu Hioki at UFC on FOX 6, Fan favorite, and one of the top 145’ers on the planet, Clay “The Carpenter” Guida (30-13) will be looking to improve his positions in the UFC Featherweight division, facing the always-tough Chad Mendes. Earlier in 2012, Mendes challenged Jose Aldo for the title, and is widely regarded as one of the top contenders in the UFC Featherweight division.
Clay Guida comes to this fight with clear intentions to make a bold statement against Chad Mendes, and to prove everyone he’s the one who should get the task of dethroning the champ.
Another interesting fact – this will be the third time Clay Guida competes at UFC on FOX fight card, previously Ben Henderson (current Lightweight champion) at the inaugural FOX event, and vs. Hatsu Hioki last month in Chicago.
Also, WEC veteran Bart Palaszewski will join Travis Browne at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale, facing the relentless Cole Miller. Palaszewski earned Fight of the Night performance for his effort against Diego Nunes back in October, 2012, and will be looking to deliver more of the same at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 13. With 17 KO/TKO and 11 Submission finishes, we can surely count on Palaszewski to grab another fight night award for #TeamVFD.
Born in Warsaw, Poland, Bartimus Palaszewski competes in MMA for over 10 years, with 52 professional bouts under his belt. Cole Miller will quickly realize he’s got a fight on his hands.
