Spencer Fisher vs Melvin Guillard UFC 90 fight possible in Chicago

Lightweight brawlers Spencer Fisher (21-4) and Melvin Guillard (21-7-2) could throw leather at UFC 90: "Silva vs. Cote" at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Ill., on October 25.

"The King" reportedly made the announcement over the weekend at the International Mixed Martial Arts Convention (IMMAE) at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in Long Beach, Calif.; however, no bout agreements have been signed at this time.

Fisher is fresh off a unanimous decision win over Jeremy Stephens at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 Finale in June. The Miletich Fighting Systems veteran has won two of his last four bouts, including a rematch against Sam Stout at UFC Fight Night 10 more than one year ago.

He is a former 155-pound contender. And he’ll need to put together back-to-back wins to prove that he still belongs among the division’s elite.

Guillard made a triumphant return to the Octagon at UFC 86: "Jackson vs. Griffin" last month, needing just 36 seconds to take out Dennis Siver. "The Young Assassin" has tremendous potential; however, personal situations outsides the cage have affected his performance inside it.

He, too, has something to prove in the match up, making it a rather intriguing bout. Fisher clearly has the all around edge, but Guillard could score an upset here.

It all more than likely depends on which Guillard shows up.
