Melvin Guillard vs. Shane Roller at UFC 132 in Las Vegas, Nevada

One of the most explosive fighters in the division, Melvin Guillard will face former WEC title contender, Shane Roller in a lightweight bout for the ages at UFC 132 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 2nd, 2011.

UFC President, Dana White commented on the match-up, saying:

“Both of these guys are coming off of Knockout of the Night winning performances.”

Guillard is coming off a very impressive knockout win over the highly talented Evan Dunham in the main event of the UFC Fight Night 23 event in January. The Greg Jackson trained fighter called for a title shot following the fight and maybe with a win in July could see him move closer to that spot.

Roller marked his octagon debut with a knockout win over Thiago Tavares on the UFC on Versus 3 card in Louisville, Kentucky. After a tough first round he landed a blockbuster right hand which stopped the Brazilian dead in his tracks.
