I hope Melvin beats the piss out of him. In his last fight Tavares kicked Lentz on the nuts twice on purpose.

I will go with Melvin actually, he has gotten better at being able to scramble back up when taken down, and I think he'll get tavares to brawl with him.

This is definatley not a bad match-up for Guillard. Torres never came close to submitting him & he looked way better definsively after training at Jackson's & working with Joe Stevenson. Plus, Tavares likes to stand & bang anyways, so he'll prolly get ktfo.

how is this a bad match up for Melvin? He just beat Torres and Tibau(Well in the judges eyes) and both have just as good ground games as Tavares.I'm taking Melvin by tko.

Melvin is the new Brazilian Killer, just another desperate to clinch buttscooter to bite the dust due to the combos of a superior athlete. Melvin via flying knee 2-0 under Greg Jackson who's next? Where you at?Melvin is too explosive for this guy, I smell some salts in the future.

its stupid as hell to keep throwing guillard in with great grapplers..they do the same thing with Spencer fisher and it always results in the same type of fight which is one guy trying to sprawl and brawl while the other is constantly going for takedowns...its just not fun to watch.. put Guillard against Stout or Fisher or jeremy STephens already!!!
