Before Joe Lauzon vs. Melvin Guillard went down at UFC 136, I mentioned that according to ‘Demolition Man,’ the last murder in California happened on September 25, 2010. If Melvin Guillard is MMA’s equivalent of Simon Phoenix, then tonight was Joe Lauzon was undoubtedly Sly Stalonne — but with enlarged ears. Seriously, if some sage decended to earth and told you that Joe Lauzon would outstrike Melvin Guillard so much that he would get rocked, then effortlessly rear naked choke him in the first round — then you would obviously have to believe whatever that guy says for the rest of your life. You would most likely get that guy’s phone number and ask him what the lottery numbers are for tonight.
Props to Reddit’s own Joe Lauzon on jumbling up the lightweight picture even more than what it already is. Now that Melvin Guillard’s potential title shot has been delayed, this can only pave the way for Gilbert Melendez to get a shot against the winner of Edgar vs. Maynard. Or at least LayzieTheSavage hopes it will.
