As expected, Melvin Guillard‘s big win at WSOF 10 has earned him a coveted title shot.

If the the same Melvin Guillard shows up that fought Gesias Cavalcante we could be in for a treat, that fight would be Gathje's toughest test to date.

This would be a great fight. Justin gets tagged on the feet quite a bit, and Melvin has the power to put his lights out. I'm sure Guillard's questionable chin will get put to the test as well.

Jz Guillard fight was stopped premature IMO.
Still Guillard looked much better.

I think justin has a great chance in this fight and should be the favorite here.

Good fight, Gathje is the real deal and if he can put Melvin away that would be huge for him, but being a huge Guiilard fan I am definitely rooting for him here

Really interesting match-up here. Justin is undefeated while only amassing one of those wins via decision, the rest he was able to finish before the final bell. If he can stop Guillard, too much to think the UFC looks at maybe picking this guy up?

*Side note, I am having trouble finding lightweight (or any specific class) rostered fighters that are under the WSOF banner, anyone know where I might be able to find this?*

Only second time he's missed weight his whole career and it was only 157.2 he came in at for the fight against Cavalcante, th first was UFC 150 against Cerrone. First fight was against a teammate and this one was first out the UFC. Im sure he is frustrated and not taking his job seriously, but I assure you for this title fight he will be on point. I find it hard to believe that a UFC redemption he won't care, you take the title in an organization, the UFC usually takes notice. He will be back.
