Cowboy Justice: Donald Cerrone to Throw Down With Ex-Teammate Melvin Guillard @ UFC 150

(“Pose on that red carpet, Donald Cer-Ro-Nay!)

The UFC has confirmed that the co-main event for UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar 2 (August 11th; Pepsi Center; Denver, CO) will be a pretty damn promising lightweight battle between Colorado native Donald Cerrone and Melvin Guillard. Both fighters are coming off of decision wins — Cerrone with his three-round thrashing of Jeremy Stephens at UFC on FUEL 3 in May, and Guillard with his recent win against Fabricio Cameoes at UFC 148.

Not only is the matchup compelling from an entertainment standpoint, there’s also a bit of backstory considering that the two men were longtime teammates under Greg Jackson, until Guillard jumped ship at the beginning of this year to train with the Blackzilians in Florida. (Here’s a photo of Melvin pretending to be Bigfoot Silva’s shadow.) After the fight was announced, Guillard referred to himself and Cerrone as “best friends,” while Donald simply described their relationship as “cool.” I mean, obviously Cowboy already has a best friend.

Cerrone originally wanted Anthony Pettis as a dance partner at UFC 150, but is just happy that somebody stepped up to fight him in his home state. Official CagePotato Prediction: Cerrone defeats Guillard by second-round submission, picks up the SOTN bonus, then takes like 10-12 chicks out on a pontoon boat. (Keep in mind that Official CagePotato Predictions are wrong almost 100% of the time.) The current UFC 150 lineup is below…

Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar (for lightweight title)
Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard (LW)
Jake Shields vs. Ed Herman (MW)
Yushin Okami vs. Rousimar Palhares (MW)
Chris Camozzi vs. Buddy Roberts (MW)

Jared Hamman vs. Michael Kuiper (MW)
Nik Lentz vs. Eiji Mitsuoka (FW)
Justin Lawrence vs. Max Holloway (FW)
Dennis Bermudez vs. Tom Hayden (FW)
Ken Stone vs. Erik Perez (BW)

Cerrone can eat shots from a weak-ass bitch like diaz but if he even eats one shot from guillard chances are he will be ko'd.

Bigfoot makes Tito Ortiz look like Zippy the Pinhead.

I'm with the Cerroneians on this one. Guillard is through like mildew and Bar-b-q.

@LOKI - If there was a list of names of people who could KO Cerrone, Melvin would be at the top of that list. The problem is Cerrone's learned that when your opponent has a shortcoming, exploit.

Yushin Okami vs. Rousimar Palhares most interests me. I was semi-bummed to see Palhares get that D- branding by Belcher. Seeing him lose two in a row would be a even bigger downer.

Nothing would make me happier than to see Cerrone get KTFO but yeah...Melvin is going to sleep.

He deserves Pettis. He has lost one fight in the UFC to probably the toughest guy in the division.

Melvin isn't going to beat Cowboy I'll say it.
