UFC 136 Results: Instant Reaction and Analysis for Melvin Guillard vs. Joe Lauzon
UFC 136 saw it’s first finish of the night in the form of Joe Lauzon versus Melvin Guillard.
Coming out Lauzon clips Guillard with a left hand. Immediately Lauzon jumps all over Guillard and works into back control. Lauzon then slips one arm under the chin of Guillard and immediately begins to squeeze for dear life.
Lauzon eventually taps out Guillard and takes the fight in surprising first round submission victory. This effectively ends the Guillard hype train.
Next up for Lauzon could be a lot of things. Maybe a fight against a top tier opponent to re-crowd the lightweight division.
This sucks for Guillard now that he has to rebuild his huge winning streak that he was stringing together. He was so close to a title shot and was beating people with ease, but now who does Guillard take on?
Guillard will probably face a mid-top tier lightweight. I wouldn’t doubt seeing a possible Anthony Pettis vs. Melvin Guillard fight in the near future.
Both fighters possess awesome striking skills. Both fighters are very entertaining. After seeing tonight Guillard is definitely left wondering a lot.
