Melvin Guillard makes quick work of Evan Dunham in UFN 23 main event

Which Melvin Guillard would show up for UFC Fight Night 23? The fast-rising lightweight contender answered that question emphatically with a first-round knockout of Evan Dunham.

Guillard's impressive and trademark performance capped off the second installment of "UFC Fights for the Troops," a UFC event series that serves as a fundraiser for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

The event took place Saturday in front of active military personnel at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, and the night's main card aired on Spike TV after a four-fight preliminary-card stream on Facebook.

Guillard, whose inconsistency often mirrored a questionable commitment to the sport, has transformed himself in recent years, thanks largely to Greg Jackson's camp. The "new" Guillard has seen the fruits of his labor, and against Dunham, he picked up his seventh win in eight fights.

Guillard's quick hands and light feet wasted little time picking apart fellow contender Dunham, who simply was too slow to the punch. Guillard first dropped him with a left-right combo and then wobbled him again with a vicious uppercut. The blows kept coming as Guillard delivered a series of knee strikes to the head that set up the knockout win just three minutes into the fight.

 I agree with you but just have to say how annoying it is to see "retard logic" over and over...i thought that was a Sherdog term

Nothing retarded about it. People were all over Dunham saying he was the heir apparent to the 155 title. Guess not. He is good, but as I suspected Melvin is better.

My bisexual and highly curious friends sat in a circle jerk and did a pool on this fight and I randomly selected Dunham 2nd round. I actually thought I was going to win with that pic, kinda surprised the way it went down. If Guillard fights to his strengths he's one of the better 155ers!

 No fucking way...that's just what happened here too.  We did a pool on this fight and I randomly selected Dunhan 2nd round.  I actually thought I was going to win with that pic, kinda surprised the way it went down.  If Guillard fights to his strengths he's one of the better 262ers!
