Melvin Guillard scheduled to meet Gesias Cavalcante at WSOF 11

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

MMAFighitng.com has learned that “The Young Assassin” is scheduled to meet Gesias Cavalcante at WSOF 11 in July.

Melvin Guillard's first fight under the World Series of Fighting banner is now official.

MMAFighting.com's Ariel Helwani revealed that "The Young Assassin" will make his WSOF debut against Gesias Cavalcante on the July 5th fight card, which is headlined by a lightweight title fight between Justin Gaethje vs. Nick Newell.

Guillard was released from his UFC contract following a unanimous decision loss to Michael Johnson in March. Guillard went 12-9 (1 NC) inside the octagon, yet has not managed consecutive wins since July 2011. He holds notable victories over Jeremy Stephens, Dennis Siver, Gleison Tibau and Evan Dunham.

Cavalcante is coming off a third round stoppage victory over Tyson Griffin back at WSOF 4 last August. It marked his second victory in WSOF, with his first being a submission win over TJ O'Brien on the promotion's debut fight card.

WSOF 11 takes place on July 5, but the city and the venue are yet to be determined.
