Video: Joe Lauzon loved submitting a 'cocky and overconfident' Melvin Guillard at UFC 136

New, comments

"It was good to beat him -- it was so much better to beat him the way I did. He was super confident, I think he was overconfident, cocky, arrogant. I don't think he took the fight very serious, he was at the Expo and things like that. I'm just happy that one, I dropped him and two, I finished it quick."

Joe Lauzon didn't just upset Melvin Guillard last night (Oct. 8) at UFC 136: "Edgar vs. Maynard 3" in Houston, Texas; he destroyed him. "The Young Assassin" came in cocky and overconfident, like his victory was guaranteed and a title shot was just around the corner.

Think again.

"J-Lau" took care of business by dropping his opponent before rushing him and locking in a rear-naked choke submission to finish the job. And, once again, Guillard is his own worst enemy.
