"I was excited for my last fight with Lauzon, and I was in the best shape of my life," Guillard said at today's media workout session. "I just rushed myself and got caught. So right now, this new year, my key word is patience. In order to be patient, sometime I have to keep myself calm when i don't want to be. I'd rather be sitting here, jumping around all crazy, but I want to translate how I feel right now into the ring.

"It's not going to affect my style of fight, just so you guys know. I'm still going to go in and be the fast, explosive kid that I am. But right now, I just want to stay focused and grounded - try to humble myself where I can go in against a guy like Jim Miller and not make that mistake I made against Joe Lauzon."

"I know in the past I've said, 'I want to win a title; I want to win a title,'" Guillard said. "Of course I want to have the title eventually, but right now I just want to enjoy fighting – getting better – and by the time I do become a world champion, I can hold the belt for a long time and be successful.

"I learned from a close friend recently that sometimes when you win the belt too fast, it can be the end of your career. But I definitely want to enjoy my career and win the belt before I take my way out the door."

 J-Lau whipped your ass.  Quit calling it a mistake and give your opponent some credit jackass.

Melvin clearly did make a huge mistake in that fight. He was lighting Diaz up on the feet, and then decided to jump into the guy's guard right into a guillotine. He was well on his way to a victory if he didn't get sloppy.

what mistake would that be? Fighting guys that are better then him? Having every punch he throws be a wild telegraphed haymaker? Having no submission defense? Getting rocked by the first punch and subbed while on queer street? Don't worry, the Blackzillions will make him invincible...

 I hope "patient" doesn't mean all his fights will look like the Stephens one.

I don't care what anyone says...he's an exciting fighter to watch. He either finishes his opponents, or gets tapped out! But an awesome knockout artist! Phone Post

Avoid getting into the cage with Lauzon in the future. Now that's SMART! Phone Post

I disagree. He got him early and finished it.

It wasn't done lengthy besting or one sided decision.

Anything can happen in there. Who knows how well Melvin could have done if a fight had actually happened. That was one of those 'non-fights' to me. We never really got to see them fight. Phone Post

His main problem is overconfidence, at this level understimating opponents is a major mistake, come in focused, respect but not too much your opponent and fight hard....

I think he can whip J-lau but not if he goes in there with a brash overconfident attitude disrepscting him as a fighter.

We didn't. We saw Melvin get dropped and choked out so quickly we never saw anything.

Had it got for maybe a few minutes then yeah. But Melvin did nothing but throw a punch and get dropped as far as I can remember. He was out of it from the beginning. We didn't get to see any real exchanges of clear headed ground work. Phone Post

Yeah it's amazing how quick people can get subbed when they have no sub defense....
