Bellator 141: Melvin Guillard To Make Promotional Debut

Melvin Guillard

Melvin Guillard will make his Bellator debut this August, taking on Brandon Girtz at Bellator 141, the promotion announced recently.

Set for the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California, the card goes down August 28. The main card airs on Spike TV.

Guillard (32-12-2) signed with Bellator after a brief stint with the World Series of Fighting. He also fought several times for the UFC before his release.

“Since signing Melvin (Guillard) in May, we have been anxious to get him inside the Bellator cage,” Bellator president Scott Coker said. “Brandon Girtz has performed well for us and will face his stiffest competition to date when he meets the 50-fight veteran. I’m really looking forward to the event, as well as returning to one of our favorite venues in Pechanga Resort and Casino.”

Girtz (11-4) has won four of six with the promotion, including a recent TKO over Benny Madrid.

More bouts are expected to be announced in the coming days.
