UFC On FOX 8: Mac Danzig Vs. Melvin Guillard

Mac Danzig vs. Melvin Guillard

A pair of lightweights in need of a victory square off next, as Mac Danzig (21-10-1) battles Melvin Guillard (30-12-2). Danzig is 3-6 in his last nine fights overall, including a 1-1 mark last year; Guillard has lost two in a row and four of his last five. Steve Newport is the man in charge.

Round 1: Guillard has busted open the nose of Danzig, and fires off a powerful leg kick, as well. Nice elbow lands off the clinch, and Guillard throws another right that bounces off the head. Left jab is working for Guillard, who adds in a combo. Huge right hand from “The Young Assassin,” who seems to be in rare form this evening.

Round 2: Danzig really has no answer for Guillard’s striking in this one, as he needs to bring thing fight to the ground. Straight left and Guillard begins giving chase, landing another. Counter left off a leg kick does damage to Danzig. Guillard catches and drops Danzig with a huge left hand, pounces and finishes him with some ground-and-pound. Danzig appears to be in serious pain, as he is still down and screaming.
