Guillard vs. Camões Wiki Update Wiki

The fifth bout of UFC 148 saw Melvin Guillard take on Fabricio Camoes in the lightweight division.


The fighters exchanged leg kicks at the start and Guillard landed a big right hand that Camoes walked through. Guillard landed a lead uppercut that hurt Camoes but the Brazilian regained his footing. Guillard landed power punches to the body and head as Camoes came forward and pushed the grappler away any time he clinched. Guillard secured a takedown in the final two minutes and Camoes swept him and took full mount in a scramble, landing punches and elbows from the top. Guillard took advantage of a Camoes slip, following up with punches on the ground before the horn.


The pace slowed in the second and both men were patient with their strikes, Guillard landing the better shots with crisp hooks. Camoes came alive midway through the round and landed big shots but Guillard fired back with even more ferocity and ended the round on top, firing off strikes.


Again the pace slowed in the third but again Guillard got the better of the exchanges, backing Camoes up with hooks while dodging or stuffing takedowns. Camoes finally got a takedown at the end of the round and cranked on a leg before the bell.


The judges scored the bout 30-27 across the board for Guillard, giving him the Unanimous Decision victory.
