No jail time for Guillard


Melvin Guillard has lost four of his last five bouts in the Octagon, but not all of his troubles are in the cage. It was recently revealed that Guillard was facing assault charges and a failure to appear charge in New Mexico, however has recently cleared it up and been sentenced to probation:

Melissa Segura of reported Guillard's sentencing via Twitter:

UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard avoids jail time; sentenced to supervised probation through June 2015, community service and court fees.

Good news for Guillard here. A two year probation term, along with fines and community service, stands as a pretty mild sentence. He'll need to keep his nose clean throughout that time obviously, but he's free to keep fighting as long as it's in a sanctioned bout.

Some of the very best genetics and physical gifts ever seen in the sport of MMA. Cannot seem to get his personal life together and on track. His mental focus seems to be his downfall, as it is with many fighters. I still love rooting for Melvin.  I can empathize with his flawed character.
