Guillard defends coach Greg Jackson from comments made by Gracie

by Jeff Cain | source: heavy.com
 

“Coach Greg is one of the — he’s the best coach because he is who he is, not because of him teaching me or Clay Guida or freakin GSP (Georges St. Pierre). It’s not about that to him. He doesn’t care about the spotlight. Greg has never cared about the spotlight. He cares about helping us,” insisted Guillard.

“For Cesar Gracie to say that, he doesn’t really know Greg Jackson.”

“I’ll tell you this man, when you’re at the top of the game or whatever it is, whether you’re a poker player or whatever your job may be, when you’re a the top, people are always trying to drag you down. That’s just the way life is,” said the Greg Jackson trained lightweight.

Fighters don’t typically take kindly to someone criticizing their coaches, and Guillard is no different.

“I was cool up until the guy’s just really trying to bash my coach. He don’t know coach Greg. That man will give you the shirt off his back,” Guillard told Tapout Radio.

I don't believe rickmartel is deaf. He's always throwing it out there. Sounds like an elaborate troll angle to me.

for what it's worth since you can't hear the interview, Melvin does in fact sound like a different person in all regards, it seems that Coach Greg as he calls him has gotten through to Melvin on many levels. I actually hope Melvin does very well against one of my favorite up and coming fighters, I see this as a win/win fight for me as a fan, I have enjoyed Dunham's rapid rise to the top, but I also welcome the new Guillard with open arms if he can realize his full potential I do think he could be a Champion.  There's something different in his mental approach, he has the same cockiness and swagger, but it's more focused now. Melvin seems much happier and more confident to be honest, not just cocky, but truly confident now.

I can always pretend like I'm not noticing assholes like you talking to me and ignore them though, so it's not too bad Redneck. and I don't ever have to listen to my ex wife or girlfriends bullshit.

Do you even have a soul? That's rude, nobody asks for sympathy around here, but some basic empathy is nice to see in people.
