At 37 years old, Guelmino is the oldest fighter scheduled for action at UFC 165. He’s coming off a two-minute submission loss to Josh Barnett in Strikeforce and is getting a chance in the Octagon as a matter of circumstance, not performance. Furthermore, Guelmino is fighting newcomer Daniel Omielanczuk, meaning a defeat would almost definitely mark the end to the Austrian’s spot on the roster.
The lineup for UFC 165 features two title-bouts, a couple of top contenders, and a number of fighters who have only tasted defeat a single time. However, that’s not to say every athlete taking to the Octagon on September 21 can depend on having a job in the UFC come October based on how things unfold in Toronto. In fact, a few are even in “must win” situations. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
