On this week’s edition of FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight,” it was reported a lightweight shootout between Melvin Guillard (pictured) and Ross Pearson will co-headline “UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs. Munoz.”
The October 26 event takes place inside Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
Guillard earned a much needed win last month by knocking out Mac Danzig at UFC on FOX 8. “The Young Assassin” had dropped four of his past five prior to putting Danzig to sleep.
Pearson posted his second straight TKO win by beating Ryan Couture in April. He put down bitter rival George Sotiropoulos before that.
Here is the card’s current lineup:
Melvin Guillard vs. Ross Pearson
Mark Munoz vs. Michael Bisping

Michael Bisping (pictured) doesn’t fight Mark Munoz until October 26, but in typical Bisping fashion, why waste good trash talking time?
Just three days after their shootout was officially announced, Bisping has already started his verbal assault on Munoz, who is widely regarded as one of MMA’s nicest guys.
“He’s a great wrestler, but I think he’s one dimensional,” Bisping...
Ross Pearson did some mountain biking this weekend and while there made sure to give some time to a young fan. Got to love how fan friendly these athletes are.

You have to respect the opinion of The Count, I suppose. His opinion does agree with the judges, but the rest of the world is still up in arms about the Machida/Davis fight. And if I may judge for a moment here: I don’t really understand what Bisping was watching here?
Machida had Davis in danger in the first and third. Hmmm.
