Melvin Guillard changes managers, joins ATT

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Melvin Guillard, 30, who fights Ross Pearson at UFC Fight Night: Bisping vs Munoz in Manchester, England on October 26, 2013, has found a new team. Guillard has been on an exploration the past couple of years, training first with Jackson-Winkeljohn’s MMA, then The Blackzilians, then a thwarted attempt to return to Jackson’s, then to Grudge, and now he has landed at ATT.

Guillard also recently acquired a new manager, Malki Kawa of First Round Management. Guillard had previously been represented by Authentic Sports Management.

Guillard found success at Grudge, winning a $50,000 Fight of the Night performance bonus vs Mac Danzig. “The Young Assassin” had previously been on a 1-4 streak, and likely faced release from his contract should he have lost.

Let’s hope the current line up of management and trainers proves to be the right fit, because Guillard is a remarkable talent, who has never quite been able to bring it all together.
