Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard Set for UFC 150 in Denver
Two exciting lightweights are set to square off when UFC 150 invades Denver on Aug. 11. Donald Cerrone and Melvin Guillard are both coming off impressive decision victories and will now meet each other in the Octagon.
Donald Cerrone posted this on his Twitter account and the official website of the UFC has also confirmed the bout.
Cerrone was one of the hottest commodities when the WEC lightweights merged into the UFC. An exciting offense-minded fighter, Cerrone was on the cusp of a lightweight title shot until a disastrous outing against Nate Diaz derailed those plans.
But "Cowboy" rebounded nicely with a decision victory over the heavy-handed Jeremy Stephens in May. The bout saw Cerrone get back to his ways as the Muay Thai champion unleashed a number of heavy leg kicks en route to victory.
Guillard was in a similar position to Cerrone after putting together five-straight victories. It seemed Guillard had finally begun to realize the potential MMA fans had been placing upon him for years but two consecutive victories put a halt to any title talk.
The Louisiana-born fighter then left Jackson's MMA to train with the Blackzilian camp, a move that brought quite a bit of criticism from MMA fans and analysts.
Guillard got back into the win column after defeating Fabricio Camoes via unanimous decision at UFC 148. The fight saw Guillard wind up on the mat with Camoes in full mount but he was able to survive and utilize a good gameplan to take home the victory.
This fight would already be guaranteed to provide fireworks giving the two men competing but when you add in the fact they used to be teammates, the war of words may be just as good as the in-cage action.
