Yahoo’s Kevin Iole first revealed the news on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.
The fight should come as no surprise. Guida and Henderson are considered two of the top lightweight contenders in the UFC and have been on a collision course this summer. The winner will receive a shot at the winner of the UFC 136 title fight between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard.
Henderson vaulted up the rankings with a dominant win over former top contender Jim Miller at UFC 133. Henderson controlled every facet of the bout on the way to a strong unanimous decision that instantly placed him into title contention.
Guida defeated former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis earlier this year.
