White unsure of Guillard’s future in UFC
“You’re asking me where he is, I don’t know, as far as being cut. We’ll talk to the boys and see,” UFC President Dana White told media members about Guillard following the UFC 155 post-fight press conference on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas.
Guillard has been with the UFC since his appearance on TUF 2, going 11-8 inside the Octagon dating back to 2005. The Louisiana native has been inconsistent in the cage, but he is best known for his tremendous knockout abilities, which he has showcased on several occasions.
In his most recent defeat to Varner at UFC 155 last month, Guillard did not fight with the same all-out, in-your-face style he usually brings to the cage – which was somewhat of a letdown to White.
“If you ever notice, when Melvin Guillard comes out with that explosive, tries to go after you and knock you out [mentality], he wins more fights than he loses,” White said. “When he has that sit back and wait kind of style, he’s just not as effective as he is when he lets it all go.”
