Kawajiri (33-7-2) is coming off a first round submission win over Sean Soriano in his UFC debut in January. The former Shooto champion is on a five winning streak since dropping to the featherweight division.
Guida (30-14) is coming off a third round TKO loss against Chad Mendes in his last outing at UFC 164. Guida is (1-3) in his last four outings with the lone win being a very questionable split decision win over Hatsu Hioki.
The UFC Fight Night 39 event will take place on April 11 and will be headlined by the heavyweight scrap between Roy Nelson and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.
