UFC Lightweight Melvin Guillard edged out Fabricio Camoes via unanimous decision (30-27 x3) in their UFC 148 bout last night at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena at UFC 148. The mercurial Guillard never quite pulled the trigger in the striking exchanges but he also managed to survive two serious scares on the ground. Quite a feat for a fighter known almost as much for his lack of submission acumen as for his speed and power.

Camoes had his moments but failed to capitalize when he had Guillard mounted in the first round and couldn't lock in a kneebar attempt as time ran out in the third.

What was the high spot of this fight?

Seeing Guillard survive being mounted by a legit 3rd degree BJJ blackbelt under Royler Gracie was definitely the highlight of the fight.

Where do these guys go from here?

Guillard pulls back from a two-fight losing streak and gets one last chance to try to put together a title run. He's 30 now and no longer training with Greg Jackson so I'm not optimistic but he's still an immensely talented fighter.

Camoes falls to 1-1 in his current UFC run (he's 1-2-1 overall in the Octagon) and will surely get another fight but I wouldn't expect him to contend in this lifetime.

Watch it now, later or never?

Never. Just another bleh fight on a card full of bleh fights.
