UFC Fight Night 30 results: Ross Pearson vs. Melvin Guillard rematch set for March 8th in London

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Lightweights Ross Pearson and Melvin Guillard will rematch next March in London, England following tonight's No Contest outcome.

While the main event between Lyoto Machida and Mark Munoz ended decisively, the co-main event between Ross Pearson and Melvin Guillard ended in a bit of controversy. Guillard hit Pearson with two hard knees to the head, but the 2nd one was deemed illegal when replays showed that Pearson's hand was down when Guillard's knee landed. However, Pearson's hand wasn't down until after Guillard had thrown it. Pearson suffered a nasty cut on his forehead, and the fight was declared a "No Contest" at 1:57 of round 1.

As stated in the UFC Fight Night 30 post-fight press conference, the two lightweights will settle the score in London next year.

Also slated for the March 8th card are light heavyweights Alexander Gustafsson and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
