Melvin Guillard: Jim Miller is One of My Favorite Fighters [VIDEO]


(Guillard is relishing the opportunity to bounce back from his disappointing loss to Joe Lauzon by beating Jim Miller Saturday night.)

We caught up with Melvin Guillard last month in Toronto at the MMA Expo and we had the opportunity to speak with “The Young Assassin” about a variety of topics, including his insane amount of fights, his loss to Joe Lauzon and his upcoming fight this weekend against Jim Miller at UFC on FX 1.

As always, Melvin had a lot to say, but it’s obvious that he has become a much more mature and humble fighter the past few years thanks to the support of his former coaches and teammates at Jackson’s MMA. The newest member of Imperial Athletics’ “Blackzilian” team is confident that he’ll one day be the UFC lightweight champ and he foresees himself being a coach on one of the upcoming seasons of The Ultimate Fighter.

Check out the video interview below:

OK Mike Russell....You moved way fucking up in the rankings. I am going to see when they have a local show so I can hop the fence for free.

I would have been a good Mexican.

Good for Guillard to come across as focused and seasoned. Matured is left for another discussion.
.
Point is, if in his weight class, I would not want to fight that guy.
.
Maybe if a great with wrestler with submission skills it wouldn't be so bad, but getting him to the ground - no thanks.
.
ps..come on CP, what was that song? I liked it.

You need to use the "Fill Right" filter on your video editing. It duplicates the left channel to be the same as the right (right now you only have the left).

Fight Club Choice number 1# for me would be Lil' Wayne.

Fuckin' seriously? You guys had to play that Lil Wayne song during the ENTIRE interview. Guillard's Naaww Oleans accent was hard enough to decipher.

Was he referring to Joe Lauzon as a middle pack guy? Because that to me sounds like some sore loser shit.. hmm.. Logic.

I am still saying since joining the "Blackzillians" that Guillard is gonna weigh in at 167 lbs.

Cage Potato QUESTION: During the past "LivE PHone Call IN" at the end of the show, there was some music. What is the name of that song and the band?
.
That's right Ben, I was listening! GRIN
