Undefeated featherweight Brian Ortega meets Clay Guida at UFC 199 in June

By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

Undefeated featherweight Brian Ortega gets perhaps his highest profile booking to date this June at UFC 199, as he’ll take on longtime UFC vet Clay Guida.

Ortega is 10-0 with one no contest in his career, that coming after he tested positive for drostanolone in a submission win over Mike de la Torre in his UFC debut. Since returning from suspension, he’s pulled off consecutive wins by stopping Thiago Tavares by strikes before submitting TUF winner Diego Brandao.

Guida, 34, enters his 49th career professional fight off a submission loss to the aforementioned Tavares in November, coming in just 39 seconds. That moved Guida to 3-3 at featherweight, continuing a run of alternating wins and losses since dropping down.

UFC 199 hits The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on June 4, headlined by two title fight rematches in Luke Rockhold vs. Chris Weidman and Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber.
