"Cowboy" down.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender, Melvin Guillard, is feeling pretty good about his chances against Donald Cerrone, who challenges him for a spot in the 155-pound pecking order at UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2" on August 11, 2012, from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

In fact, "there's no way that Cerrone can beat him."

That's according to recent comments from "The Young Assassin" in a press release from Authentic Sports Management. Guillard also contends that in his mind and in his coach's strategy sessions, this fight has already been won "10 different ways."

Those comments after the jump.

"Things could be entirely different at this stage in my life, if I hadn't beaten Camoes at UFC 148, who knows where I would be right now. Instead, I'm co-headlining a UFC pay-per-view for Mr. Lorenzo and Mr. Dana and all the fans, and in a fight that I think will be the Fight of Night. There is no way that Cerrone can beat me, because for the first time ever, I will be fighting at my full potential. I can't wait for Denver. I want the fight to be this weekend. I'm already in shape and in my mind, and in strategy sessions with my coaches, I've already won the fight ten different ways."

Cerrone saw his six-fight win streak snapped by Nate Diaz at the UFC 141: "Lesnar vs. Overeem" pay-per-view last year in Las Vegas, but bounced back nicely with a unanimous decision beatdown of Jeremy Stephens back on May 15 at the UFC on FUEL TV 3 event in Virginia.

Guillard, meanwhile, rebounded from back-to-back submission losses to Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller by scoring a unanimous decision win of his own against Fabricio Camoes earlier this month on the UFC 148: "Silva vs. Sonnen 2" preliminary card.

Anyone think he can use that momentum to lasso the "Cowboy?"
