As if the evening’s main event weren’t enough, fans are now guaranteed fireworks when the UFC takes over the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. UFC 150, which will be anchored by a lightweight championship rematch between Ben Henderson and Frankie Edgar, has now added another pair of dynamic 155 lb fighters added to the bill as Donald Cerrone takes on Melvin Guillard.
Cerrone (18-4), recently dominated Jeremy Stephens in a rather lopsided decision at UFC on Fuel TV 3. “Cowboy” rebounded from his sole promotional loss to current number one contender Nate Diaz after a run which saw the Jackson’s MMA product take five fights in 2011, closing out the year with a 4-1 record inside the octagon.
Guillard (30-10) broke a two-fight skid by outpointing Fabricio Camoes just one week ago at UFC 148. “The Young Assassin” was on a five-fight tear prior to dropping back-to-back bouts to Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller. The Blackzilian fighter now looks to put together another win-streak when he meets Cerrone, which would undoubtedly put him back into title contention.
