UFC Fight for the Troops 2 Results: Melvin Guillard blitzes Evan Dunham

UFC Fight for the Troops 2 Results: Melvin Guillard blitzes Evan Dunham. An injury replacement for two-time lightweight title contender Kenny Florian, Guillard upset the world-ranked Evan Dunham in the UFC "Fight for the Troops 2" headliner on Saturday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. The Jackson's Mixed Martial Arts representative wiped out Dunham with punches and knees 2:58 into Round 1, as he extended his winning streak to four fights and announced himself as a contender at 155 pounds.

"I want my title shot," said Guillard, who improved to 9-4 inside the Octagon. "I'm the dark horse in this game at 155 pounds. No disrespect to anybody in my weight class, but I am the best 155-pound fighter in the UFC."

Guillard set the tone at the start with his blinding hand speed, as he lit up his foe with a straight right hand. Dunham secured a takedown a little more than 30 seconds into the bout but could not corral Guillard on the mat, and his failure to keep him there cost him dearly. Once the two lightweights returned to their feet, the odds shifted dramatically in Guillard's favor.

A two-punch combination, punctuated by another blistering right, dropped Dunham where he stood. He never recovered. Diving for an attempted single-leg takedown, Dunham was blitzed with an uppercut and pair of knees that resulted in a violent and decisive conclusion to the brief encounter.

"You keep lining them up, and I'll keep knocking them down," said Guillard, who was originally scheduled to meet Yves Edwards on the undercard. "I will go undefeated in 2011, and I will get a title shot no later than 2012."
