According to the popular Brazilian website TATAME, Rafael dos Anjos and Clay Guida will meet at UFC 117 as expected in Oakland, California.

It will be an important bout for dos Anjos, as he looks to collect his fourth straight win inside the Octagon. A convincing victory over a competitor as accomplished as Guida could propel him into title contention.

The always popular Guida bounced back nicely from back-to-back losses to Diego Sanchez and Kenny Florian by taking out Shannon Gugerty at “UFC on Versus 1” back in March.

UFC 117 is expected to be headlined by a middleweight title bout between champion Anderson Silva and No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen on August 7th at the Oracle Arena.

Here are the other fighters slated/rumored for the event:

Clay Guida vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Dennis Hallman vs. Ben Saunders
Thiago Silva vs. Tim Boetsch
Matt Hughes vs. Ricardo Almeida
Jon Fitch vs. Thiago Alves
Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva (UFC Middleweight Championship)
