A lightweight bout between Clay Guida and final WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis is being targeted for UFC 130 or UFC 131.

Sources close the bout informed Heavy.com of the news on Monday night.

Pettis was scheduled to receive a UFC title shot against the winner of the Frankie Edgar/Gray Maynard bout from UFC 125. The fight ended in a draw, however, and Pettis was removed from the title shot in favor of a third bout between Edgar and Maynard. Pettis opted to take a fight instead of waiting on the sidelines for eight to ten months.

Guida is coming off a submission victory over Takanori Gomi at UFC 125. The popular lightweight has strung together three straight victories and is nearing title contention for the first time in his UFC tenure.
