Guillard Set To Return At UFC 148 Against Camoes


The once self-proclaimed best lightweight fighter in the world, Melvin Guillard, will return to action against another submission specialist named Fabricio Camoes at UFC 148.

UFC 148 is expected to go down on July 7 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. In the headlining fight UFC champion Dominick Cruz will attempt to defend his title for a second time against Urijah Faber.

After being considered a top contender in the UFC’s 155 pound division, Greg Jackson trained Melvin Guillard finds himself in a must win situation after dropping his most recent two bouts to Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller.

The UFC matchmaking department has put him up against a submission specialist yet again in the form of Team Black House fighter, Fabricio Camoes.

Camoes comes into the fight on the heels of a UFC on FX 1 victory over Tommy Hayden. The 3rd degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will no doubt look to bring Guillard to the mat and expose the same weakness in his game as his previous foes.

  1. Chuck says:

    UFC must really wanna get rid of him to match up another sub specialist.

  2. glad to see guillard fighting again

  3. true mma says:

    Finally melvin will be kicked out of the ufc after he loses this one.

  4. Boss says:

    Camoes by guillotine …

    • K2 says:

      I don’t know about the guillotine. I doubt Guillard will shoot on him much (no homo). Cam’elt’oes will be trying to take him down and will have to watch out for the guillotine himself. My bet is rear-naked. Not saying guillotine can’t happen, but I see the set-up for it being harder to achieve as Cameos should be getting this to the mat ASAP.

  5. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    If he shows improvement like Pat Barry in his sub defense I bet Dana will keep him if he loses again. He loves this guy.

  6. m says:

    Melvin could definitely use a win. It’s clear that Melvin still wasn’t ready to be with the elite at 155.

    Another long climb starts with this fight.

  7. Someguy says:

    Melvin Is a great fighter with a lot of KO power. I really don’t know why people dislike him so much, he’s very entertaining.

    • Chuck says:

      he just thinks he is better than he is. I can remember him being a blowhard on TUF. I had hoped he matured over the years, but when he was going on a win streak that smug attitude came roaring back. I agree with you, he is exciting to watch, but the way he carries himself makes me root against him.

  8. Jay says:

    I think it would be cool to watch Melvin fight at ww. He’s definantly big and strong. I don’t see a title run but good fights for him.
