Published: Thursday, July 24, 2014 4:49 p.m. CDT

No. 7-ranked UFC featherweight and Johnsburg native Clay Guida will take on Dennis Bermudez (No. 12) as part of the UFC on Fox 12 main card at 7 p.m. Saturday at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.

Guida (31-14, 11-8 UFC), 32, comes off a win in April in Abu Dhabi against Tatsuya Kawajiri. Bermudez, has won six straight bouts, including his latest, a techincal knockout at UFC 171 in March. The two will square off in the UFC's 145-pound division.

Experience in the ring will be a key factor for Guida against the 27-year-old Bermudez (13-3, 6-1).

Although Guida needed no motivation leading up to the fight, Bermudez has said he believes Guida is "out of his prime" and Guida's No. 7 ranking comes solely from his "big name."
