If Melvin catches Nate with one of those haymakers of his it will lights out for Nate. But on the other hand if Nate gets Melvin to the ground tap or nap for Melvin. Melvin has a strong standup game while Nate has solid ground game. If Melvin can keep this fight standing and stay in the pocket he might be able to bring home a win. Nate loves to stand back and pick his shots with his jab. While Melvin enjoys dashing inside with vicious hooks. Nate has to annoy him with the jabs but he has to be weary of the one hit quitters of Melvin tho. Anything can happen.

Hopefully melvin has trained a lot on the ground and his cardio. Great striker and lots of potential he just needs to focus. That being said the loser should get the boot.

why would melvin get the boot if he loses? he is coming off of 2 wins. diaz on the other hand needs this win, although i wouldnt be too sure that he would get cut if he does lose. im going with diaz via 2nd round RNC

Though i actually like melvin and the way he fights he constantly disappoints by being caught in submissions that he should have seen coming. I would like to see him win. Seems like people easily choke him out. Great striker just needs ground game.

neither one of them should get the boot...diaz has done well in the UFC and yes he is coming off of 2 losses but they were decisions and to very good LW fighters in Clay guida and Joe Stevenson...melvin is coming off THREE wins 2 of which were in the UFC, so I dont think either one of them are close to being cut..

nah...I got a feeling Diaz will get cut if he loses this one.


The UFC RARELY keeps someone coming off 3 straight losses (decision or KO)....the only person that gets tht type of treatment is Houston Alexander (and Dana only gives him a break because he does childrens charities)

With that said, Melvin will probably stuff 92% of Diaz takedowns and try to keep this one standing. I think Diaz isnt strong enough to keep it on the ground for more than 0:15.

Guillard by KO

Personally I think Maynard vs Huerta should be the Main Event. This can be a showcase fight for Maynard who prob needs this win and another (sherk or guida or edgar rematch?) to secure a title shot.

The winner of diaz/gullard isn't really in contention for a title anytime soon. I guess it will let the winner get back on track though... more of a resurection fight.

I disagree.....he is a great fighter that came from TUFF even though he fought forever before that(not the point).....

The point is Diego sanchez is better than Gray Maynard and is 22-2 and hasnt got a title shot yet.....why so soon in his UFC career does Maynard deserve one, especially over Diego....???


I think that Diaz takes this fight, dont get me wrong melvin could win but i always see him as having all the tools needed and always getting caught, and I see Nate pullin a sneaky sub and gettin back to his Gracie roots......

ehh.....I think people are too quick to jump up and scream about Mlevin's ground game.

The minute you mention Melvin Guillard people have this knee-jerk reaction "oh oh oh he'll get caught in a sub!!! he'll get caught in a sub!! he lacks ground game, he lacks ground game" When in reality, Joes Stevenson and Clay Guida have more losses by submission than him...so its all relative to the fighter.

Okay...but melvin has gotten subbed by sub-par fighters (not including josh neer) whereas Clay and joe daddy have gotten subbed by some DAMN good fighters, i.e. roger huerta & bj penn
