When Melvin Guillard initially failed to make weight, there was some talk about him possibly not being as mentally prepared for his showdown versus Donald Cerrone as we expected he would be.
Then the match started, and everyone quickly dropped that talking point.
Within seconds, Guillard successfully countered a kick by Cerrone and sent him tumbling to the floor with a very solid left. As Cerrone struggled to regain his composure, boom – Guillard nailed him with a strong knee. And then, inexplicably, Guillard took his foot off the gas. Cerrone quickly rebounded from his early woes and ultimately dropped his friend with a head kick and a right that took Guillard out for good.
