UFC 136 results: Joe Lauzon submits Melvin Guillard for monster upset win

via 1.bp.blogspot.com

The UFC 136: "Edgar vs. Maynard 3" pay-per-view main card kicked off tonight (Oct. 8) at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, with Melvin Guillard continuing his quest for a lightweight title shot against Joe Lauzon.

Guillard's resume heading into tonight's throwdown showed eight wins in his last nine fights. Making it nine of 10 would surely put him on the fast track to finally contesting for the division crown.

If there's an underdog who could spoil his plans, it was Lauzon. A submission savvy stallion who specializes in his opponent's weakness, "J-Lau" had as good a chance as anyone.

Which is exactly what he did.

Lauzon settled as a -615 underdog for this fight but that didn't matter when he was choking the life out of Guillard until he tapped.

Guillard opened up confident and landing shots, even taunting his opponent after rocking him at one point.

That proved to be his downfall.

"The Young Assassin" walked right into a solid left hand that had him hurt bad enough to give up his back to a submission ace. That's a big mistake, folks.

He paid for it ... dearly.

Sorry, Melvin, no title shot for you.
