Melvin Guillard will not be receiving a very nice ovation for his next fight, as “The Young Assassin” takes on Ross Pearson in England this October.
The bout will be the co-main event for UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Munoz, which takes place October 26 from Manchester, England. It was confirmed on “UFC Tonight” Tuesday evening.
Guillard (31-12-2) likely saved his UFC career with a knockout of Mac Danzig last month. He had previously dropped two straight and four of his last five before the finish.
Pearson (15-6) has won two straight, both via TKO, over Ryan Couture and George Sotiropoulos.
