Melvin Guillard may be going through some tough times, but at least he'll soon be able to take out his aggression in the Octagon.
Guillard's struggles inside the cage are well noted, with back-to-back losses to Jamie Varner and Donald Cerrone. The loss to Cerrone was particularly brutal as Guillard was knocked out after taking a head kick and massive punch from his former training partner.
A fighter who can share the idea of going through some tough times will be his opponent. Danzig is just 4-6 in the UFC since winning The Ultimate Fighter 6 and is coming off a split-decision loss to former Pride star Takanori Gomi.
WhatI think will generate most of this bout's interest is the fact it will be Guillard's first fight since switching camps. The lightweight recently left the "Blackzillians" camp and was believed to be heading back to Greg Jackson's MMA.
But it appears Jackson and his team have moved on from Guillard as he was shunned from rejoining the team.
Now Guillard has found a home at the Grudge Training Center in Denver, run by Trevor Wittman.
With the UFC's chopping block present at every event, it could be possible that both Guillard and Danzig will be fighting for their UFC futures at UFC on Fox 8.
UFC on Fox 8 is scheduled to go down on July 27 and will take place at the KeyArena in Seattle.
