Guillard found a new home at Grudge Training Center in Colorado and the lightweight (30-12-2) is scheduled to fight Mac Danzig (21-10-1) July 27 in Seattle as part of the UFC on FOX 8 lineup. Optimistic about his training, Guillard last Friday tweeted, "One month until you guys see the new and approved young assassin in action, new team, new vibe, new focus, I'm excited about this next fight."
