Melvin Guillard vs. Yves Edwards at UFN 23 on January 22nd

Greg Jackson trained fighter, Melvin Guillard and UFC veteran, Yves Edwards has been pencilled in for an explosive lightweight battle at UFC Fight Night 23 on January 22nd, 2010.

Guillard is on a three fight winning streak since losing to Nate Diaz September 2009, most recently picking up a split decision win over Jeremy Stephens at UFC 119. Prior to that he picked up a decision win over Ronny Torres and a first round TKO win over promotional newcomer, Waylon Lowe.

Edwards returned to the octagon for a third time in September this year, picking up a unanimous decision win over John Gunderson after stepping in at short notice. He’ll now look to build on that by taking out one of the divisions most promising.
