WTF of the day. Fabricio Camoes fought Anderson Silva, yes that Anderson Silva in his second fight ever. He's a LW now...

Is Camoes' chin any good? I'd love to see Guillard lose.

He lost to Silva by TKO, but it was a retirement, his only other TKO loss was by corner stoppage as well.

Love the prelims to this might be the most excited I have been for a UFC card. Nurmagomedov vs Tibau should be good and it helps I'm a fan of both. I might be the lone Guillard fan so his fight with Camoes should be fun add on Costa Philippou and Roller vs. Alessio and I think we are in a good full night of fights can't wait.

No you're not, I'm a Guillard fan that hopes he pulls it together. It's interesting because he was fairly close to becoming the number one contender for the lightweight title, but then he fell apart in his next 2 fights and is now close to being cut by the UFC. This is actually a good test for him because Camoes is a solid fighter with good BJJ. If he manages to put Guillard on his back, Melvin could be looking at another submission loss. I'm actually hoping Guillard does get taken down once and shows us an improved ground game from him. Although, my prediction is that he will fight smart (I hope he fights smart at least) and not risk getting taken down by not being too aggressive. He should be able to sprawl and brawl his way to a TKO victory in my opinion.

Pretty sure they messed up right there.

Izquierdo came to the UFC too soon. He clearly has talent, but should have taken another couple of years on the regional shows, working on his takedown defence and getting back to his feet. I can see him being released then back i na couple of years when he's got like a 12-3 record or something.

In this fight, i think this is gonna be a razor thin decision win for Roller. Just think he has more power, and also has his wrestling to go to if he's losing.

Wish my laptop would stop being shitty and get this video in a better quality. Its normally fine watching the prelims, the quality tonight for me is dreadful :(

LL 07-07-2012 08:22 PM

10-9 Roller, got it 1-1, whoever takes this third will win the fight unless they finish.
