Guillard wants to fight quickly

One of the most impressive performances at the last UFC show was from Melvin Guillard. Trying to erase the memory of a submission loss in the grudge match with Rich Clementi, Guillard blitzed through Dennis Siver – scoring a TKO victory in just 36 seconds.

Guillard does not want to waste much time getting back in the cage.

I want to fight again in September,” said Guillard, “You can look forward to me staying focused and on top of my game.”

September is already a loaded month for the UFC with UFC 88 and a UFC Fight Night. Without already being scheduled on one of the cards, I’m not sure Guillard will get his wish. However, Guillard has a substantial amount of talent, and if he is able to learn from the loss to Clementi, he has a chance to become a contender at 155.

And of course, Guillard still wants one specific fight.

There will be a rematch with Rich Clementi someday.”

    he’ll be on the ATL card since he’s from the south

  • sven says:

    Put him in there with Spencer Fisher. That would be a crazy fight.

  • jball says:

    sven, i agree. that would make for a great fight.

  • Kelvin says:

    I hope he’s on the ATL card…I’m going!

    It appears that this guy has finally pulled his head out of his ass. The UFC has to love the fact that he’s ready to go again in such a short time. I personally like watching his fights, but man, he seems real vulnerable to submissions.

  • Lethal says:

    It totally makes sense to put him on the Atlanta card since that’s just a short drive away from NO.

    Just scanning the UFC website for possible opponents and this is what I came up with:

    Mark Bocek
    Spencer Fisher
    Matt Grice
    Cole Miller(he’s from Georgia so makes sense for him to be on the card)
    Kurt Pellegrino
    Thiago Tavares
    Matt Wiman

  • The next time you see him regardless will be vs. A brawler or stand up specialist. The takes away Bocek from that list seeing as though he is a BJJ bb. Melvin is still so young and maybe a top 5 athelete in the UFC, but not a top 20 fighter. If he becomes humble and trains hard on his submission defense he will be almost unstoppable
