Guillard facing assault charges in N.M. | UFC NEWS

As if things couldn’t get more perplexing for Melvin Guillard.

It was learned earlier today that Guillard bid adieu to his Florida-based team, the Blackzilians, and was expecting to rejoin his old gym, Team Jackson.

Apparently the folks in New Mexico nixed that decision by vote and Guillard is what you could call a free agent.

Now, is reporting that, according to Bernalillo County (N.M.) court records, Guillard currently faces five charges: two misdemeanor counts of aggravated battery, to which he pled not guilty. Three misdemeanor counts of failure to appear in court were settled.

A jury trial on the assault charges is set for April 10, where he faces six months in jail for each count, in addition to fines and probation.

Guillard has gone 1-4 in his last five fights. One of the most explosive fighters in the division, he has 19 wins by KO, Guillard was considered one of the top contenders to the title after winning five straight fights from 2010-11.

    Unfortunately, I see an implosion happening for Gulliard. He should clean his shit up and maybe try ATT. I think Liborio and Davis seem to really care about their guys.

    I have seen enough of Melvin in the cage. His appearance and bearing is “street thug” It will not surprise me if, after burning his bridges in MMA, I hear of him being arrested in mugging incidents.
