UFC on Fox: The other fight

Yes, it's true that you'll only see one UFC fight on Fox this Saturday night when Cain Velasquez defends his heavyweight title against Junior Dos Santos.

But there's another solid fight not being televised that you need to concern yourself with Saturday: Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida. You can watch it live on Foxsports.com and Facebook.com/ufc.

Henderson is the most athletic and flexible lightweight around right now. Guida is the most energetic, non-stop 155-pounder out there. This has been set up as a title eliminator, with the winner in line to face champion Frankie Edgar. Of course, the plan before a fight doesn't always come to fruition after the fight. Just ask Anthony Pettis and Carlos Condit, to name a few.

Guida (29-8) has four straight victories, including Pettis and Takanori Gomi. He's high energy and makes the crowd go wild. Henderson (14-2) has been in some wars in the WEC, most notably against Donald Cerrone. Since losing the WEC title to Pettis as the promotion was being absorbed by the UFC, Henderson has decisioned Mark Bocek and Jim Miller.
