A little over a year ago, Melvin Guillard was on the cusp of a title shot, but after a 1-3 stint in his last four fights, he finds himself in a must-win situation to stay relevant in the deep UFC lightweight division. Besides a closely-contested unanimous decision win over Fabricio Camoes, Guillard has three first round stoppage defeats to Joe Lauzon, Jim Miller, and Donald Cerrone.

Jamie Varner put himself back on the map in the 155-pound division with a first round TKO upset win over Edson Barboza at UFC 146. Most recently, Varner was submitted by Joe Lauzon in the third round at UFC of Fox 4, in one of the more exciting fights of the year.
