Melvin Guillard and Jamie Varner are two lightweights who are going to come out swinging early.
Both fighters have solid chins, though, with Guillard's knockout loss to Donald Cerrone being the only one either has suffered. Therefore, there's a good chance this bout will last longer than the initial onslaught and possibly go to the scorecards.
Guillard is known for having poor submission defense, and Varner does have a number of submission wins. However, most of those victories came against low-level competition.
After both fighters survive a back-and-forth slugfest in the first round, Guillard will focus more on his wrestling in the second frame. Then, there's a good chance Varner could take control, as Guillard fades in the final stanza. Ultimately, a close decision will be decided by the opening moments, and whichever fighter got off to the stronger start will walk away with the victory.
Guillard defeats Varner by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28).
