Melvin Guillard wanted it, and he got it.

The UFC lightweight will tangle with Jeremy Stephens on UFC 119's main card, according to sources close to the event who told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the fighters are expected to sign bout agreements shortly.

This is going to be the Knockout of the Night, should be quick and exciting.

both these guys have good chins too, so we should get to see it for a couple of rounds. I'll take guillard, I actually felt stout outpointed stephens but stephens had more power, I cant say for certain but I think guillard is probably the powerful striker, and definitly the faster/more explosive of the 2

I knew the ufc would make it happen once he announced it. just made sense.

Nice fight both are on win streaks
Decent main event fight. Curious to see what main event will be

Griffin vs machida
Griffin vs rampage rematch
Or machida vs rampage

Won't be a title match but easily could be evans vs shogun

Everyone pretty much should have knew this fight was happening. Guillard asked for it and it did make sense. It's going to make for an intresting fight. But will Guillard training with Greg Jackson now. I think he comes in with a great gameplan and wins this thing.

The best thing though is that this card is in my home state I will definetaly be getting tickets for this show.

My guess is a possible Nog/Mir rematch.

This is great news. I love this fight. I actually was eying it for a fantasy fight card thing. Should be a nasty KO for sure. Stevens is good but very wild and melvin is sooooooooooo fast!!!! Jeremy gets taken out in a wild sluggfest!!
