Good matchup. I think that Tavares will take him down and pound him out.

Damn! For a TUF Finale, this card is seriously stacked.


Clay Guida vs. Diego Sanchez
Nate Diaz vs. Joe Stevenson
Matt Brown vs. Anthony Johnson
Kevin Burns vs. Chris Lytle
Melvin Guillard vs. Thiago Tavares
Brad Blackburn vs. Edgar Garcia

plus the TUF fights!!!

sounds like a good fight i think guillard is to explosive and will probably ko him.

next time make sure u get their records right tavares is 18-3 and guillard is 40-8-3 or idk maybe im wrong cuz on sherdog it says that ur right but on ufc.com they have them down at different recods

UFC likes to fib records sometimes, or count exhibitions/amatuer fights towards pro records.

Yeah the TUF Finale is stacked but hopefully UFC still have the TUF guys fight each other, the guy that didnt win the show. Cause alot of the guys deserve another shot.


This fight is still a toss up for me. Im thinking Tavares can survive guillards onslaught at first and then take him to the mat and finish him.
