Apparently, the UFC couldn’t care less about “The Walking Dead” season finale. On Sunday evening, the organization announced a lightweight affair between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida will headline their fourth show on FX.
The 155-pound shootout will be a five-round affair.
The June 22nd event is expected to take place in Atlantic City, New Jersey, however a venue has yet to be confirmed to host the shindig.
Both veterans are looking to rebound from losses. Maynard was put to sleep by then-champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 136 this past October. The last time “The Bully” entered the winner’s circle was in a lopsided unanimous decision victory over Kenny Florian in August of 2010.
Guida dropped a decision defeat to Anthony Pettis at “UFC on FOX 1.” “The Carpenter” had rattled off four straight wins prior to the November outing.
