Less than two weeks out from his fight with Melvin Guillard (47-11-3 MMA, 11-6 UFC), Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone (18-4 MMA, 5-1 UFC) on Friday blasted former WEC champ Anthony Pettis (15-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) during a media call in support of UFC 150.

A frustrated Cerrone said his fight with Guillard only arose when Pettis turned down multiple offers to fight.

"I've been trying to fight Anthony for a while now, and every time I suggest it, his manager comes back and says, 'Well, maybe Cowboy could fight somebody else right now,' and it's just this excuse to not fight," Cerrone told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Cerrone vs. Guillard serves as the co-main event of UFC 150, which takes place Aug. 11 at Denver's Pepsi Center. The main card airs live on pay-per-view with prelims on FX and Facebook.

I'm one of the many (I'm assuming) that believe Cerrone is going to finish Guillard. If this all plays out the way I see it in my head we get Cerrone vs. Pettis as either a Fox/Fuel headliner or a main card fight on the NYE card. I really hope I'm right.

I hope Pettis shuts Cerrone up. Getting tired of Cerrone trying to be this huge bad ass.

Tough fight to call, I think Showtime would win a point fighting style fight in three but in a five rounder I would pick Cerrone

Cerrone got owned by Nate DIaz.
Guillard has faster, more powerful striking than Diaz. Guillard is also more agile than Nate.

I'm not liking Cerrone's chances, except Guillard seems to have historically had poor submission defense.
