The UFC has added three new bouts to their Nov. 12 card in Anaheim, Claif., which features heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez defending his title against Junior dos Santos in the main event LIVE on FOX.

Lightweight contender Clay Guida and former WEC lightweight champ Ben Henderson will square off in a 155-pound match-up with serious title implications, according to a Tuesday report on UFC.com.

Guida (29-8) is on a four fight win streak, most recently taking out former WEC lightweight champ Anthony “Showtime” Pettis via unanimous decision at the TUF 13 Finale in June.

Prior to that, Guida had won three straight submission victories over Shanon Gugerty, Rafael dos Anjos and Takanori Gomi, respectively.

Coincidentally, Henderson’s (14-2) last loss was when he lost his WEC 155-pound title to Pettis in the final WEC show in December 2010. Since then, Henderson has fought and won twice, both inside the UFC.

He won a unanimous decision over Mark Bocek in April at UFC 129, and then defeated Jim Miller via unanimous decision at UFC on Versus 5 last month.

In addition to Guida vs. Henderson, a bantamweight bout between Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto and Darren Uyenoyma and a featherweight bout between Ricardo Lamas and Cub Swanson have been added to the UFC on FOX card.
