Dear Denver,

You're spoiled.

Signed, Everyone who won't get to see the Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard lightweight lowdown live at the Pepsi Center in Colorado, as the co-main event of UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2."

UFC.com brought word of the pending bout earlier today:

A day after tweeting, "Well I sure wish someone would step up for Denver," Colorado's own Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone found a willing candidate in "Young Assassin" Melvin Guillard, who is coming off a victory last weekend at UFC 148.

The lightweight war between the strikers and former teammates will be the co-main event at UFC 150 August 11 in Denver, Colorado.

This should be fun.

Cerrone may have had his six-fight win streak snapped by Nate Diaz back at UFC 141 on Dec. 30, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nevada, but he rebounded rather well with a unanimous decision beatdown of Jeremy Stephens back on May 15 at UFC on FUEL TV 3 in Virginia.

Guillard, meanwhile, avoided a three-fight skid by scoring a unanimous decision of his own over Fabricio Camoes just this past weekend on the UFC 148: "Silva vs. Sonnen 2" preliminary card.

But, really, who cares about background? This is Donald freaking Cerrone against Melvin freaking Guillard.


UFC 150 will be headlined by a lightweight championship rematch featuring reigning division kingpin Ben Henderson putting his 155-pound strap on the line against former titleholder Frankie Edgar.

The dynamic due will be joined on the PPV main card by Jake Shields, who will make his 185-pound debut for the promotion against TUF alum Ed Herman. Rousimar Palhares will also attempt to "Thunder" past Yushin Okami.
