UFC veteran Melvin Guillard got knocked out in Australia on Friday night (July 28) at the hands of undefeated Israel Adesanya.
Under the Australian Fighting Championship banner, the 32-year-old MMA fighter got manhandled by his younger opponent
After catching Guillard with a straight right toward the end of the the first round, Adesanya (10-0) swarmed him, reigning down strikes on the ground until the referee mercifully stepped in and stopped the fight.

Despite the loss, Guillard (32–19–2) is scheduled to fight against in late August.
The former UFC fighter is on a six-fight losing streak. He actually hasn’t won a fight since 2014 for the lesser known WSOF promotion.
DAMN! Maybe time to hang it up?
