Melvin Guillard Talks Evan Dunham, Getting His Turn On Top

The “Young Assassin” Melvin Guillard will look to stake his claim to a top spot amongst the UFC lightweight's in his next bout as he headlines UFC: Fight For The Troops 2 against Evan Dunham and talked to MMAWeekly.com about getting his turn in the main event:

“Being moved to the main event, I feel like I'm in my rightful place. I've won six of my last seven fights in the UFC, and I just feel that I deserve a title shot. It was supposed to be Kenny Florian that's up there, but this guy has had chance after chance. He's had numerous chances to be in the No. 1 contender's spot, and he choked. I just feel like there's so many 55er's in the weight class, give some of the other guys, give me and some of the other guys a chance to be in the spotlight. Everybody keeps seeing the same guys fight for titles, and at the end of the day we need to give the fans and you guys something different. There's so much more talent out there, why keep having the same guys fight for the title?”
