Melvin Guillard and Mac Danzig Agree to Fight at UFC on Fox 8


GuillardTibau537TUF9UFC on Fox 8 marks the promotion’s return to Seattle, and now the July 27 event has its first bout.

UFC officials on Wednesday announced that verbal agreements are in place for Melvin Guillard to face Mac Danzig in a lightweight match-up at UFC on Fox 8.

Guillard (30-12-2) has gone through a rough patch recently, winning just one of his last five fights. He is coming off of back-to-back losses to Jamie Varner and former training partner Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.

Guillard recently left the Blackzilian team in Florida, initially intending to return to Greg Jackson’s camp. That didn’t work out, so now Guillard is at the Grudge Training Center in Denver.

Danzig (21-10-1) is another fighter that needs to get some momentum going.

He is just 4-6 in the Octagon since winning TUF 6 and has alternated between wins and losses over the past three years. Danzig is coming off of a split decision loss to Takanori Gomi at UFC on Fuel TV 6 in China.

With the UFC clamping down on its roster lately, there is less and less room for error in the Octagon, putting some added pressure on Guillard and Danzig.

UFC on Fox 8 takes place on July 27 at the KeyArena in Seattle.
