A lightweight contest has been added to the UFC on Fox debut card as Yahoo! is reporting that Clay Guida and Ben Henderson have agreed to face each other on the card.

The event takes place in Anaheim, Ca on November 12th and will likely be a title eliminator to decide who will be the new number one contender to the lightweight title.

Guida is riding a four fight win streak and has made a case for his place amongst the top of the division with impressive showings against Anthony Pettis and Takanori Gomi in his last outtings.

Henderon has won his last two fights since dropping a five round decision to Pettis at the last WEC card. In his last performance he went the distance with Jim Miller, taking the unanimous decision.
