Melvin Guillard: I’m not an easy fight for anybody


Despite eight losses in the UFC, Melvin Guillard is one of the UFC's most feared lightweights in the UFC. That is because six of his twelve wins are by brutal KO or TKO and he's never an easy fight:

The attitude put out by Johnson is something Guillard considers disingenuous. Basically, Johnson is doing what the Diaz brothers would call “selling wolf tickets.”

“I think he’s just one of those guys who grew up scared of people and then learned how to fight somewhere along the way,” Guillard said. “I can look right through that kid. He ain’t no gangster, that’s for sure.”

Guillard wouldn’t completely put Johnson down, however, saying that the two had competitive sparring sessions during their time together as Blackzilians. They would always try to knock each other out, Guillard said, and coaches would constantly have to separate them.

But the bottom line, according to Guillard, is that he’s simply the better fighter.

“If I had to say who got the better of each other, about 80 percent of the time I knew I got the best of him,” he said. “I got more experience, I’m the better fighter, I’m the stronger fighter, I’m the faster fighter, and I got knockout power. Mike’s been rallying up some wins lately, but I’m any fighter’s … kryptonite. Nobody wants to fight me. In the back of his mind, he’s probably, like, ‘Damn, I really have to fight Melvin Guillard?’ I’m just going to call it like that. I’ll say that to any fighter. I’m not an easy fight for anybody.”

Melvin is extremely dangerous but agree. Some of his losses seem self inflicted. He was doing so well with Jackson's guidance and apparent cleaner lifestyle until he came on a loss and then its been spotty since then

I like both guys, not sure how it's gonna turn out. Melvin is super dangerous and can put anyone away. If he's patient and calculated like he was in the Danzig fight than MJ is in trouble. MJ has been very sharp lately and has the tools to beat Melvin. As long as he doesn't try to stand and trade with Melvin for too long he can win this fight.

He was an extremely easy fight for Lauzon, Joe Stevenson, Clementi, etc.

Melvin "I am not an easy fight for anyone" Guillard - Rich Clementi would disagree with that statement.

MJ is on a rampage. I like Melvin but I think Johnson has too much momentum right now. Man this is going to be an EXPLOSIVE fight!
