Ross Pearson and Melvin Guillard are UFC veterans that have shown significant improvements in their previous bouts. Pearson is coming off two straight wins against George Sotiropoulos and Ryan Couture, both TKO victories. On the other hand, Guillard is coming off a KO victory over Mac Danzig, losing his previous two bouts against tough competition in Donald Cerrone and Jamie Varner. Both fighters are dangerous strikers and going the distance seemed highly unlikely from the get go.
