Lauzon has some decent submissions and that is one of Guillard's weaknesses. Hopefully Guillard's sub defence has improved as much as his TDD, and if it has, Lauzon is going to bed, if it hasn't Guillard will be tapping in that first round. Interesting fight.

I don't like this fight for Lauzon he will probably run right into Guillards fist 15 seconds into the fight and go out. It is definitely winnable but his style leaves him very vulnerable to getting KOed by someone as explosive as Guillard.

Guillard will not be getting stormed by anything joe has to offer. His wrestling is far too strong, ma boy Melvin is going to keep it on the feet and knock him out in the first with his superior striking, speed and footwork.

Melvin should take this quite easily, i can't see Lauzon being able to get him to the ground, Melvin is too strong for Lauzon, his wrestling is too good and his striking will put J Lau to sleep in the first round.

As long as Melvin doesn't do the kind of stupid thing he did early in his career, he should be fine.

For example, he would be completely dominant on the feet, taking no damage and hitting at will, and then when he knocks down his opponent with a punch, he follows him to the ground (for some dumb reason) and gets submitted.

As long as he doesn't do that, he should be fine.

I personally think the whole "Melvin is gonna get subbed" arguement is outdated and kinda lame by now. The last person to sub Melvin was Nate Diaz, and that was 3 years ago.

Since then Melvin has fought many BJJ black belts and submission "aces" and dominated them

Ita almost akin to talking about Matt Serra TKO'ing GSP....dude that was years ago and many things have changed since then

Melvin by something brutal. He's too fast, too powerful, and just too explosive for Lauzon.

You are jumping the gun on this. Frankly Dunham, Torres, and Stephen's BJJ is not on the same level as Lauzon's. Lauzon is a top five submission guy in the division if Melvin KO's him he can take the next step and the argument can be retired.

Both guys have monster first rounds, and both are prone to error and weakness in the later rounds. I like Guillard because you have to believe he will dictate where the fight goes but with the miles Guillard has on him don't count out a shocking KO or a non shocking sub.

Guillard wins this via Tko in round 2. I hope Lauzon pulls out a choke or something though.
