Melvin Guillard Misses Weight at UFC 150 Weigh-Ins

Jim Genia

You can blame it on living in Florida and eating too many conch fritters, or you can try to pinpoint another reason, but UFC lightweight (usually) Melvin Guillard failed to make the 156-pound limit at today's UFC 150 weigh-ins, which took place in Denver, C.O.  Tipping the scales at 157.5 pounds and forgoing further efforts to lose the excess baggage, Guillard will now be fined an undisclosed percentage of his fight purse by the state's athletic commission; however, his co-main event fight against Don Cerrone (who weighed in at 155) is still a go.  All other fighters on the card made weight, including main eventers Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar, who will be meeting again in a lightweight championship tilt.
