(Pettis cracks Ben Henderson en route to winning the WEC Lightweight Championship.)
The winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team Dos Santos will be crowned on June 4 at The Pearl at The Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Nev., and the card will be topped by a likely lightweight title eliminator bout.
Promised an immediate title shot versus the winner of Edgar vs. Maynard II, former WEC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis (#9 Lightweight) instead has to settle for a match with hyperkinetic wrestler Clay Guida (#9). Guida, winner of three in a row after losses to former title contenders Diego Sanchez (#8 Welterweight) and Kenny Florian (#17 Lightweight), could take Pettis’ spot in line with a win.
Other bouts on the card include Jonathan Brookins (#22 Featherweight) vs. Jeremy Stephens (#18 Lightweight) Scott Jorgensen (#7 Bantamweight) vs. Ken Stone, Josh Grispi (#16 Featherweight) vs. George Roop (#46) and Renan “Barao” (#5 Bantamweight) vs. Demetrious Johnson (#4).
