Two lightweights with 92 fights worth of combined experienced will meet on January 22nd when Melvin Guillard meets Yves Edwards at an as-of-yet unconfirmed event that will likely serve as either UFC Fight Night 23, or UFC on Versus 3. MMA Junkie with the scoop:
Sources close to the event said verbal agreements are in place with bout agreements on the way.
However, contracts will be held up until the promotion designates a city and venue for the fight card, which could be UFC Fight Night 23 or perhaps UFC on Versus 3.
Another fight expected for the card will feature welterweights Charlie Brenneman and Amilcar Alves squaring off. Stay tuned to Bloody Elbow for more information on this developing card.
