“The Ultimate Fighter 5” winner Nate Diaz will be taking on Clay Guida at UFC 94 on January 31st. The two were initially slated to square off in a UFC event this month, however Guida sustained a foot injury that prevented him from training. The bout will surely join the televised portion of the event, which will be headlined by the highly anticipated rematch between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre defending his title against BJ Penn.

The fight was confirmed on GracieFighter.com, the website owned and operated by Diaz’ manager and trainer, Cesar Gracie.

Diaz holds a 10-2 professional record, however is a perfect 5-0 inside the Octagon.  He squeaked out a close split decision victory over Josh Neer at UFC Fight Night 15 back in September.

This will be Diaz’ first Pay-Per-View event, as all of his previous bouts have taken place on a free Spike TV card.

Guida, who is one of the division’s most exciting fighters, currently holds an impressive 24-9 professional record. He was victorious in his last Octagon appearance against Mac Danzig at UFC Fight Night 15.
