UFC 150 Results: Donald Cerrone Scores Sensational Knockout of Melvin Guillard

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Just when it appeared UFC 150 might be turning into UFC 149 Part Two, Donald Cerrone and Melvin Guillard electrified the crowd with a 76-second hurricane of a fight.

Cerrone, the hometown favorite from Colorado Springs, withstood a nasty early flurry from Melvin Guillard and scored a knockout at 1:16 of the first round of their co-feature bout at Denver's Pepsi Center.

Guillard (43-11-2, 1 no-contest) rocked Cerrone with a counter left and followed with a big knee, but Cerrone managed to clear the cobwebs and avoid being finished.



Then Cerrone turned it on, connecting with a left head kick which wobbled Guillard, then finishing him with a huge right hand.

"Yeah, I came in a little aggressive and he hit me hard and I was like oh [expletive],' said Cerrone. "But I withstood it."

The victory was the second in a row and eighth in the past nine fights for Cerrone (19-4-1).

The bout was scheduled to be contested at lightweight, but was held at a catchweight when Guillard weighed in at 157.5 on Friday.
