Tatsuya Kawajiri Faces Clay Guida in UFC Abu Dhabi


A Featherweight bout has now been scheduled for the UFC’s return visit to Abu Dhabi, where the event is scheduled to take place April 11th at the Yas Island.

According to Fight Sport Asia, fan favorite Tatsuya “Crusher” Kawajiri will step back into the UFC Octagon for a second time following a successful debut, while UFC veteran Clay Guida looks to get back in the win column.

Tatsuya Kawajiri (33-7-2) who began his journey into Mixed Martial Arts back in 2000, finally signed with the UFC late last year. Having been in the sport for over a decade, Kawajiri fought for some of the sports biggest promotions – Shooto, DREAM, Pride, ONE FC and Strikeforce.

Currently on a 6-fight win streak with five of those coming at 145-lbs, the fighter known as “Crusher” isn’t slowing down anytime soon, eager to test his skills against the best in the world and challenge for the Featherweight gold.

Clay “The Carpenter” Guida (30-14) of Jackson’s MMA has been around the Octagon since 2006, that’s saw him fight a who’s who of the sport. Having fought his entire career in the Lightweight division, Guida decided to drop down a weight class following back-to-back losses against Gray Maynard & Benson Henderson.

Coming off a loss, Guida now turns his attention to 2014 and start things off the right way when he meets fellow wrestler Tatsuya Kawajiri.
