Marvin GuillardUFC lightweight Melvin Guillard on Thursday was found guilty on two counts of aggravated battery, but has avoided jail time.

The charges stem from a bar fight in September 2010 in Albuquerque, N.M.

“That was an incident that happened when I first got to Jackson’s,” Guillard told ESPN.com in April.  “To put it all out there, I’m fighting charges because I was jumped by a general manager and five security guards.”

Guillard, however, was found guilty and sentenced to 364 days in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Bernalillo County, N.M. That sentence was suspended. In its place, Guillard received supervised probation through June 2015, has to complete 40 hours of community service, and must pay court fees.

Sports Illustrated’s Melissa Segura first reported the news of Guillard’s sentencing.

The change in sentencing will allow Guillard to continue his fight career.

Guillard (30-12-2) has lost four of his last five bouts. He most recently lost a split decision to Jamie Varner in December 2012.

He is slated to return to the Octagon at UFC on Fox 8 on July 27, where he is scheduled to face Mac Danzig.
