UFC 150 just got a lot more interesting.
Melvin Guillard will fight Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone on August 11th in Denver. It is the co-main event of the evening and a compelling fight. Unlike Guillard’s last bout, it will not last three rounds. Somebody’s getting knocked out.
Both men are coming off a win sandwiched after an embarrassing loss.
Cowboy handled Jeremy Stephens after an emotion filled loss to Nate Diaz. Guillard defeated Fabricio Camoes after an easy submission loss to Jim Miller.
UFC.com announced the fight earlier today.
A day after tweeting, “Well I sure wish someone would step up for Denver,” Colorado’s own Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone found a willing candidate in “Young Assassin” Melvin Guillard, who is coming off a victory last weekend at UFC 148.
The lightweight war between the strikers and former teammates will be the co-main event at UFC 150 August 11 in Denver, Colorado.
At UFC 148, one of the underlying stories was the performance of Josh Rosenthal as a referee. He finally owned up to his his putrid performance.
Mark Munoz was unconscious after an elbow took him to the ground. Rosenthal allowed him to take several unnecessary shots.
I came home and I watched it, and I was kind of like you know, if I was sitting here, watching this on the couch, I probably would have been talking smack about myself. I always say accountability is a huge part of the sport, and you are accountable for your actions. I feel like I was just a little slow on the trigger. I don’t want to see guys take unnecessary punishment. It’s a rough sport. Everyone knows what they sign in for, but it’s a millisecond-basis game. You’re making choices right there on the spot, and in the heat of the moment, I felt like I was seeing some stuff. In hindsight, I have to step my game up and make sure I’m on point for the next guys.
He needs to step his game way up.
