"I don't even want it to be a technical fight. I want to turn it into an all-out brawl. I know right now that's probably what the fans want to see and we can make it the Fight of the Night because we can go in there and brawl it out. I don't have a problem with that at all. Of course I'm gonna beat Cowboy Cerrone. I'm gonna knock Cowboy out."
-- Bold words from former UFC lightweight contender Melvin Guillard, who will be taking on Donald Cerrone in the co-main event of UFC 150 this weekend in Denver, Colorado. "The Young Assassin" is a former teammate of Cerrone, having spent several years working and training together at the renowned Greg Jackson gym in Albuquerque. Jackson helped mold Guillard into a potential title threat, but a switch in camps and a two fight losing skid ended that talk. The now Imperial Athletics member recently got back on track with a hard-fought unanimous decision victory over veteran Fabricio Camoes which set up this tremendous opportunity. While Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone has never been knocked out, Guillard tells the UFC that he thinks he can make it happen. Do you agree?
