Dos Anjos, Guillard win with brutal KO's on Spike TV prelims

by Michael David Smith | source:

George Sotiropoulos entered 2011 appearing to be on the verge of a lightweight title shot. Now he's on a two-fight losing streak, and at UFC 132 he suffered the most brutal loss of his career.

Rafael Dos Anjos took care of that on Saturday night, landing a right hand directly to Sotiropoulos's chin that turned his head and sent him flat on his back with his eyes rolling up into his head. Referee Yves Lavigne quickly jumped in and stopped the fight, and that was the right decision: Sotriopoulos was out of it.

Guillard is a great talent whose career was nearly derailed by drug problems, but he said after the fight that he thinks he's in the best place he's ever been.

That out of nowhere KO of Tavares made him think he is better than he is. He was getting waxed against Tavares too before landing a haymaker.

well melvin's weakness has always been his submission defense. roller should gone for a takedown from the start the same way he did against njokuani. he was a fool thinking he could stand with melvin.

Thought Roller would try to make this ugly and tire him out but like Dunham looked helpless against the speed and strength

Damn man he's such a beast and fights like a champion. How can you deny Melvin a shot at the title. He looks indestructible
