UFC Lightweight Melvin Guillard

On Wednesday morning, it was announced lightweight Melvin Guillard (pictured) will fight Mac Danzig at UFC on FOX 8. The question is, who will be cornering Guillard on July 27?

Guillard will likely be fighting for his UFC life. “The Young Assassin” has dropped four of his past five scraps inside the Octagon, including two straight.

The controversial 30-year-old stated last month he was splitting with the Blackzilians to rejoin Greg Jackson’s famed academy. However, it was reported less than 24 later that Guillard was now persona non grata at the popular Albuquerque gym.

Danzig, meanwhile, has alternated between wins and losses over his last seven outings. “The Ultimate Fighter 6” winner was most recently seen getting edged for a split decision defeat by Takanori Gomi in November.

KeyArena in Seattle, Washington hosts the event. FOX will broadcast the main card live starting at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

No other bouts have been reported for the lineup at this time.
