Melvin Guillard has been on TUF, fought in the UFC, did a stint in the WSOF, and now calls Bellator home – a promotion that will probably be the last stop on a ride that has lasted a long time. And that’s fine. The dude was exciting back in the day, and could clobber opponents with one punch when the mood struck him.

All of which is to say that Guillard is the star attraction of this weekend’s Bellator 171. No, it’s not a big “tent pole” event like we got last weekend, but it’s something at least paying attention to (maybe while you make preparations for that pork butt you’re going to smoke on Sunday, or crochet that sweater you’ve been working on).

To get you motivated to tune in, here are some preview vids.
