The following video is a pre-fight interview with “The Young Assassin” Melvin Guillard about his upcoming fight with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 150 on Aug. 11. These two men are friends who have trained together in the past, but Melvin makes it clear that this will mean nothing when they step into the octagon.
Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will be looking to take out the guy that took his title at UFC 144 in current lightweight champion Ben Henderson. The two will headline UFC 150 which is set to take place at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. Also on the card will be former number one welterweight contender Jake Shields as he’ll make his UFC middleweight debut against TUF 3 finalist Ed Herman.
Due to fighter injuries a new bout has been created for UFC 150 as Japanese middleweight Yushin Okami (26-7) now faces Jackson’s MMA fighter Buddy Roberts (12-2). Okami was originally slated to face Rousimar Palhares and Roberts was scheduled to fight Chris Camozzi, but due to injuries both Palhares and Camozzi have been forced to withdraw.
