Mike Guymon Vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida Set For UFC 114 Prelims

The UFC 114 card featuring the grudge match between Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson continues to take shape as reports that a welterweight matchup between Yoshiyuki Yoshida (11-4) and Mike Guymon (11-3-1) has been scheduled for the preliminary section of fights.

A Judo player hailing from Japan, Yoshida has had mixed results in the Octagon. His two wins, over Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver and Brandon Wolff, are offset by highlight-reel knockout losses to Josh Koscheck and Anthony Johnson. Yoshida will look to rebound from that KO by Johnson in his most recent fight by getting a win over Guymon.

California native Mike “The Joker” Guymon rode a five fight win streak into the Octagon only to be stymied by Canadian prospect Rory MacDonald via armbar in the first round.

In a fight likely to be a “loser goes home” affair you can look for whoever comes up short in this fight to have his UFC career come to an end.
