That saying that getting to the UFC is the easy part. Staying in the UFC is the hard part. Despite upswings and downswings, Melvin Guillard has been on the active roster of the UFC for nine years. One thing that has alluded Guillard though is a title run, but at only thirty  years of age, the lightweight believes it will come:

"People don't realize how hard it is not only to fight in the UFC but stay in the UFC. I've been in the UFC for nine years straight. I haven't been cut or kicked to another promotion and I'm proud of that." 

That said, Guillard still believes a UFC belt is in his future. Should he defeat Johnson on Saturday, Guillard plans to call for a top-five opponent and then a title shot. 

"Will I get a title shot? Yes. Will I be champion? Yes," Guillard said. "I haven't given up on myself. 

"[UFC champion] Anthony Pettis is a good fighter, but I feel like I'm bigger, stronger and faster. I can beat anybody in my weight class. I have to go make a statement against Michael Johnson and then I see myself fighting for the title within two fights."

I don't think he will but that's the attitude a fighter needs to have. But if he can beat Johnson and then someone like TJ or Bendo (unlikely I know), I can see him getting it and he's always dangerous for anyone. I like watching him fight.

He needs to finish Johnson in the 1st round to show he means business, then do the same against his next top 5 to get a title shot imo. Phone Post 3.0

Melvin is a savage striker and great athlete, hope he puts it all together at ATT.

It's a mental thing as much or more than his grappling.

I never used to like guilllard but recently I've really been rooting for him he's actually really cool and it feels like he's never really tapped his full potential for whatever reason or another, that being said he's been around forever and as guys like Pettis and aldo just move onto another level I think he's missed his time Phone Post 3.0

If he hasn't found consistency at this point, he ain't finding it. He will continue to run hot and cold throughout the rest of his career. Always entertaining but not champion material. Phone Post 3.0

Melvin has an exciting fighting style, win or lose, and that's what has kept him around for so long. But his record shows that he's consistently coming up short against top ranked competitors. I don't see him getting a title shot anytime soon.

About 6 years ago, I posted that Melvin has delusions of grandeur. Clearly, he's changed.
