Melvin Guillard Makes History At UFC On FOX 8

Melvin Guillard told a fan at Octagon-side Saturday night to remain patient, something crazy was about to happen.

Just moments later, Guillard dropped Mac Danzig and finished him with another nasty shot on the ground, earning a much-needed victory at UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Moraga.

Guillard set the UFC lightweight record with his seventh knockout finish, surpassing former division champion and sure-fire hall of famer BJ Penn.

“The Young Assassin” also tied Jim Miller with his 11th win with the promotion. The 30-year-old recently moved his training to the Grudge Training Center.

Danzig was knocked out for just the second time in his career, and first since 2007. He was in serious pain after the bout, and collapsed to the canvas after initially trying to get to his feet.
