Guymon announced the news in a forum post on the Underground on Friday:

I just got offered a 4 fight deal with the UFC!!!!!! I feel so blessed and thankful for all the people in my life. This has been the craziest year by far. This has taken me just over 10 years to accomplish. Through that time there have been countless people and sponsors that made it possible, I love you all.

I literally cried for 3 hours from sheer joy and the long road that I had traveled to this point. Thank you so much Joe Silva, Dana, Tim Katz, Dan Caldwell, And Chris from the UG that made this all happen.

I know that the 170 division is stacked and all fights will be tough in there, but I promise that I will be ready in all facets of the game to give everyone their monies worth – Win or Lose!!!!

PRO MMA Exclusive: Benji Radach moves toward title fight

by: Cory Brady

Benji Radach is on cloud nine following the biggest win of his career this past weekend on CBS EliteXC Saturday Night Fights over Murilo “Ninja” Rua. Stepping out of the ashes of a career that has been riddled with injuries and setbacks, it is hard to blame him. The fight was a wild back and forth affair that saw both men hit the canvas before Radach was able to capitalize on a mistake made by Ninja to earn himself the knockout victory.

Radach seems to have turned a new page in his promising career and with all the attention that comes from such a high profile win, the sky is the limit for Benji right now. Wasting no time in figuring out who his next opponent will be, Benji has confirmed with PRO MMA that the next fight on his quest for EliteXC championship gold will most likely be against Scott Smith in February with the winner to face whoever survives the upcoming clash between Robbie Lawler vs. Joey Villasenor.
