The following is from our live coverage of UFC 136: Edgar vs. Maynard III. To access our full coverage, click here.

The main card’s first bout, which takes place in the lightweight division, will be overseen by referee Kerry Hatley.

Round 1: They touch gloves and take to the center, Guillard coming at Lauzon hard and fast. Guillard lands a nice left kick to the body. Guillard is getting a little too excited, opening up too much in his frenetic assault. Lauzon hangs in the pocket and cracks him with a left hook counter that puts him on queer street. Lauzon jumps on him and takes his back, sinking in the rear naked choke and forcing him to tap with a quickness. Great showing by Joe Lauzon tonight.

Lauzon said he was worried about Melvin’s stand up, so he worked his own very hard.
