"I'm sitting here, today, getting ready to fight my best friend because maybe thee or four other guys didn't take the fight," Guillard said. "This fight has been planned long before my last fight on July 7. They already had these fights already matched up. So for me to be fighting a month later, that means some guys didn't step up to the plate and do their job."

"When I was offered this fight, the first thing I thought was, 'I guess there must have been some other people who said no to this fight,'" Guillard said. "Quite frankly, I was right about that. There was about three people who turned it down.

"For the media and the UFC to know how the division is so stacked, why aren't more guys stepping up? That's my question."

He should not be complaining about guys not stepping up. With the amount of times that he has lost fights due to a mental lapse, he is lucky to be fighting a big name at all.

He's super exciting to watch and has tonnes of talent but he has also blown a lot of chances in big fights that he was favoured in.

Cerrone said 3 or 4 people turned it down before Melvin was asked

I'd like to see Melvin live up to his potential because he seems like the sort of guy who really saved his own life thru MMA but I'm a massive Cowboy fan and want to see him get a title shot.

Melvin deserves success but I'll still be cheering for Cerrone.

Melvin has grown on me.. Hes game. He comes to fight. Cerrone comes to fight. Leben comes to fight. Wand comes to fight.. U know.. If the sport had more guys like that.. And had more guys with melvins view on this epidemic (yeah im calling it that at this point. People ducking or avoiding the lesser popular guys...)

.. If the top guys did this MMA as a whole would be more popular. The UFC would become a top sport.. Shit would be different.. Phone Post

Melvin shouldn't be worried about others steppin up. He should be worried about steppin up his own game after losing 2 of his last 3. Phone Post

Yeah beating Cerrone is a big deal. He's a bad dude.

I'd love to know who turned it down. Should be fight of the night. Phone Post

Deep division and people aren't stepping up. Fans gotta give props to people like Guillard and Varner for doing what other people aren't.

Cerrone was never WEC champ, but I think a win over him would be huge right now for Melvin. Looking forward to this fight.

win over cerrone has value I think, he's a former wec champ plus his ufc run has been great Phone Post

i totally agree.......i may have misread things.
i thought it was melvin who was wondering why no one would fight him.....

Still shocked Nate Diaz had Cerrone's number in such a way. Cerrone seemed unstoppable to me, after Oliveira & Siver.

Incidentally, these 4 guys are among my top favorite fighters :D
