via mmaweekly.com

Jim Miller defeats Melvin Guillard by rear naked choke. The submission came at 2:04 in the first round.

It was a clash of styles, the 'work horse' vs the 'athlete'. Jim Miller has made a reputation as an absurdly tough fighter who is able to grit his way through any situation and find a way to win. He did just that in his fight tonight with Melvin Guillard. Guillard opened up throwing power shots that landed multiples to Miller's grill piece. One of the punches put Miller down and Guillard looked to finish the fight.

Melvin made the mistake of attempting a flying knee that opened him up for a takedown. Miller was quick to take Melvin's back as Guillard stood up and sunk in a rear naked choke on the way down. Guillard attempted to fight hands but was eventually fell to the submission.

Miller returns to the win column with this huge submission win. Both fighters were considered top contenders at lightweight in 2011 before picking up surprising losses. Guillard is now on a two fight losing streak. It was his first fight away from Greg Jackson's camp.
