    Pacman Jones and Guillard should hang out. They’re the only people who have screwed up 38 times and still doesn’t matter since they get shot after shot. Literally and figuratively in Pacman’s situation.

    I dont like Clementi but it was sweet to see him tap Melvin after he supposedly slapped him.

    I cannot think of anything to say. I am speechless. Why is he getting another chance. Maybe Junie put in a good word for him.

    A submission specialist vs. a guy who gets caught by submission often…press release 3 days after the event “the UFC releases Melvin Guillard and wishes him the best in his future endevours”. “Oh and say no to crack”

    am i the ONLY guy who likes seeing melvin fight. go do yourself a favour and watch his fights. he is o ne of the most devestating punchers i have ever seen at 155-170. maybe the most. and ive seen A LOT of fights. personal issues aside, i like to watch him duke it out. it would have been cooler to have seen him fight spencer fisher. i actually take guillard by brutal knockout in the but, melvin should lose by sub here.

    Keenan, You are not the only one who likes to watch him fight but he is not worth the baggage that he brings to the table and the way that baggage reflects on the sport as a whole.

    melvin is truly talented along the lines of crazy horse bennett, thoes two guys if they take there training seriously and didnt mess around could be extreamly successful, nit to mention a fight between the two would be awesome. Melvin is still young and could become a very real force with a little guidance.
