Donald Cerrone Draws Melvin Guillard on His Home Turf at UFC 150


Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone

The UFC 150 fight card slated for Aug. 11 in Denver just got some serious punching power.

UFC officials on Friday announced that not only was Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone granted a fight on his home turf, but he’ll also face a fighter that packs the same power into his striking game as he does, Melvin Guillard.

Cerrone (18-4) has been begging for a bout at the Pepsi Center ever since he earned a unanimous decision nod over Jeremy Stephens at UFC on Fuel TV 3 back in May. He’s finally got it in his former teammate.

Guillard (30-10), who has left Greg Jackson’s camp in New Mexico for the Blackzilians in Florida, is just one week removed from his last fight, a victory over Fabricio Camoes at last week’s UFC 148 in Las Vegas.

The two will be part of the supporting cast for UFC 150, which features UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson rematching Frankie Edgar, the man he took the belt from.
