Dunham vs. Guillard Wiki Update Wiki

Melvin Guillard brought a swift end to his highly anticipated divisional showdown against fellow young lion Evan Dunham in UFC's Fight for the Troops Main Event, using superior hand and foot speed to connect repeatedly on Dunham's jaw for the barely three minute affair, which he won by knockout for his third victory in a row.


Dunham was tagged hard immediately out of the gate and looked to be on wobbly legs within seconds. The gritty up-and-coming contender rallied, however, securing an early takedown on Guillard where the two spent upwards of a minute working against the cage. Guillard eventually returned the fight to the feet, where his blinding array of power punches quickly spelled doom for Dunham. The end came at 2:58 following a powerful sequence of punches and knees from Guillard to the head of the slumping Dunham. As Dunham crumpled to the mat one more knee to the head - arguably illegal, but mere icing on the cake at that point - finished the job.


Guillard was succinct in his point fight comments, proclaiming himself the best 155er in the UFC and ready to earn a title shot in 2011 or 2012 at the latest. “I want my title shot,” said Guillard. “Keep lining them up and I’ll keep knocking them down. I will go undefeated in 2011.”
