Melvin Guillard Is Steaming Mad | Done Being Nice, Hopes Lauzon Loses So The Two Can Rematch


“Lately on my Twitter some posts have been popping up and I’m like what the hell is this? So I’m looking and next thing I know it’s people talking about Joe Lauzon hit the nail on the head, he was right, so I went in and read the article and all of a sudden he’s blasting me talking about he slapped me and he choked me out, and Melvin’s going around telling everybody I got lucky. I never said the dude got lucky. I said it was a good fight, I always gave Joe Lauzon the respect that was due, and I thought he was the better guy that day. Did I think the fight was a fluke on my part? Yeah, the fight was a fluke on my part, but I never took anything from him. So I guess he misinterpreted what I said.”

“The new me, I’m trying to be respectful and handle it the right way, but at this point right now I’m kind of fed up with it. The old me is about to come out on Joe Lauzon. He’s about to take Rich Clementi’s place of being that guy that I just don’t like… For me, I feel disrespected because I’ve done nothing but talk Joe Lauzon up, even when a lot of interviews and fight analysts were still not giving him the credit that was due saying that 9 out of 10 times he would win that once, and I would win the other nine. So people were bashing him and it wasn’t even me, and I’m standing up for him saying that Joe Lauzon is a top competitor, he can be in the top five, top ten or whatever. Now he’s blasting out at me and I have not said anything bad towards Joe Lauzon.”

“In the 10 losses I have in my MMA career, I haven’t rematched anyone I’ve lost to. Not once, I’ve never really cared for rematches because I felt they won, now I’ll move on. Right now, I’m at the point where this fight means something to me, I have something to prove against Joe Lauzon, so this is a rematch I’m asking for… Right now, I’m looking to watch the fights in Japan and I’m praying that he loses to (Anthony) Pettis because I want a rematch against Joe Lauzon. I don’t want to fight nobody next but Joe Lauzon… I don’t even care how it goes, I just want to see Pettis win and I want an immediate rematch with Joe Lauzon. Hopefully, I can get that rematch by fourth of July in Vegas… I’m tired of just being nice to these guys, I try to be nice, not befriend them, but be nice and respectful when I see them around. I feel like I’m being slapped in the face being that guy.”

So this long drawn out rant coming from MMAWeekly.com is all stemming from something Joe Lauzon said in one of his UFC 144 pre-fight interviews.

If you have not seen what Joe Lauzon said we ran it on Monday and you can find it HERE.

Now if I recall Melvin Guillard did come out on more than one occasion and say that his loss to Lauzon was a fluke, but then he followed up that performance with another loss to Jim Miller in the same fashion.

I’m not picking sides here, but Joe had some valid points in his statement and his recount of events was accurate, so why the hard feelings?

Melvin is coming off of two losses and even with a Lauzon loss this weekend he may not get his chance at redemption right away, but does anyone think he can right his wrong and take out Joe or would it be a repeat “W” for the Boston native?

  1. the original steve says:

    he didn’t get lucky but the fight was a fluke? go do some more coke and ask for a drug test dumbass

  2. Joe Lauzon would do it to him again! Melvin biggest issue is Melvin’s pride. He does not admit to himself when he encounters a better fighter. His last fight, he jumps flying knees against Jim Miller, Jim’s got more submission then I got used Kleenex under my bed. If Melvin lost his ego, he would have fought smarter and not gave Jim everything he needed to win that fight. But i don’t feel sorry for him, cause he did the same thing with Joe, Joe is not as athletically gifted but a better fighter. Quit fighting Melvin, your too late in the game to gain the humbleness required to make a tittle run.

    • phace says:

      I think Melvin would win the sequel. However, I understand why Lauzon said what he said. Melvin respected him only to a certain degree after his loss. It wasn’t quite the high level of respect for him that he’s claiming to have gave him. Again though, I would choose Melvin to win the rematch….my opinion

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      Rich clemente gave Melvin the best advice ever back what 5 years ago which is an eternity in a fighters career but Melvin did not lsiten to Rich because if he did he would have went out and learned some JITS. I think all Melvin does in training camps is look in mirror flexing his muscles talking to himself telling himself how wonderful he is and then he goes out in cahe and throws over hand rights during the entire training sessions. ALL MELVIN is GOOD AT IS OVERHAND RIGHTS and haymakers. If Dunham rematched Melvin you could be damn sure he would avoid his right hand and choke melvins as out just like Jim Miller did and Joie lauzon and 8 other guys that beat him. MELVINS GROUND GAME IS AN EMBARRESSMENT AT BEST

  3. dante080 says:

    So melvin didn’t tell anyone who would listen that be beat himself that night, that joes win was a fluke? That he felt he was the better fighter. Please! All guillard did was talk about how shouldn’t have lost, and when Joe stands up for himself, melvin gets all whiney.

    • Muaythai17-1 says:

      exactly, Melvin lost, and as such we tend to “rant” to people about how we should have, could have won,which is understandable, it’s emoitonal to lose, trust me. BUT when you tell mulitple sources the same thing then you deserve to be punked by the guy who just beat you in a fight………..what are you gonna do? fight him again? just to check the score board he already beat you up in a fight! some fighters ego’s are just too big for their own good. i definitly would fight some of the guys i’ve lost too, BUT i wouldn’t expect to kick his ass since he already beat me, i would try, but sometimes someone just has your number.

  4. Jon says:

    Typical blame everyone but yourself. You lost then basically said he was lucky. that’s what a fluke is dumbass. I don’t believe it was a fluke. I wouldn’t be said if Guillard never fought in the UFC again. Never liked him.

  5. Lol you know you’re a chump when someone has to LOSE to fight you.

  6. Jb says:

    Moron- not taking anything away from Joe but that fight was a fluke on my part. God Melvin your an idiot. Your going to be the next Kos, bis….making excuses for loosing. And yes Melvin you did get bitch slapped

  7. Pijan says:

    Lol Melvin, you already got slapped in the face, remember? Pettis is a tough fight (lol), but I hope Lauzon pulls out another W in this one.

  8. pthance says:

    I’m pretty sure Melvin is wrong, you go around telling everyone that your loss was a fluke and your opponant (who made you tap) has no right to set the record straight? I’m pretty sure if Joe L. wins he will give you the rematch to shut your ass up…in the ring…again.

  9. tim says:

    He beat your fagit ass and he will do it again lauzon will do it again but this time i hope he knocks you the fu.. out.

  10. Jeff says:

    Hmmm, I remember him whining like a little beaatch after he lost to Joe.

  11. CanILive says:

    damn atleast he’s not talking about title contention anymore lol

  12. HyLyfe808 says:

    I don’t know who writes these post? When they leave their own opinion, just makes them bias. The writer should leave his opinions to himself or if the writer need makes his own opinion. Write it in a comment box, separate from the editorial. I don’t really like reading these editorials when the writer shows favoritism.

  13. Really? says:

    “I’m not picking sides here, but Joe had some valid points in his statement and his recount of events was accurate, so why the hard feelings?”

  14. david says:

    wasnt melvin saying last year or w/e how he has grown and matured and stuff? i think he meant to say “i just keep my shit to myself now” but now hes whining again

  15. Nick says:

    Well I wouldn’t mind seeing the rematch. I think Joe would probably do the same thing.

  16. Faith in evry footstep says:

    Melvin can be so much more then what he is today if he really changes his attitude. Leaving the Jackson camp is not going to help in at all. New me, old me is the first sign that you dont have a clue who you are.

  17. kenji says:

    melvin guillard is such a great athlete and physical speciman that it is really difficult to imagine someone with that kind of ability can lose, it goes to show you as an athlete its not the athletes blessed with the most abilties that survive or win on occasion or are ranked in the higher echelon but its those athletes that can combine power with finesse and can manipulate their mindset in this game that reach the top. melvin guillard has failed to muster up finesse nor a mindset capable of reaching the higher echelon and its frustrating the hell out of him. he knows he’s blessed with so much capabailties and potential but has failed to put it all together. athletes like melvin have been depending solely on his one-punch knockout capability and its causing him to lose. till he shifts away from that and discovers his abilites in this five-dimensional sport he will always be penciled in as a one-dimensional fighter (one-punch knockout mindset) and keep on losing to the next leveled of fighters who have taken this sport to 5 dimensions.

    • kenji says:

      (cont.)er

      humble himself and move to brazil or under a top jits practition and develop his jits for a year or two. till he comes back as a jits practitioner who can punch instead of a puncher who knows jits…he will always be a notch below the top echelon of fighers. to me, id like to see melvin win a title. this kid just has too much God given potential for him not for it to be reached! good luck

  18. mma is my religion. says:

    Move on melvin, you got your ass kicked and now your wanting to fight the loser of a fight, lame.

  19. Abauka says:

    A Nigs talking smack. Very common thing..

  20. GET RID OF FITCH says:

    melvin just needs to have someone beg Jo Silva to match him up with someone with (NO CHIN) and no GROUND GAME. Why not Kenny Florian was able to get out of a fight with Evan Dunham because his team felt he shouldn’t fight anymore wrestlers. Oh wait they tried that but ended up having to tell Florian to FAKE a knee injury instead. oops my bad.

  21. jack ross is stupid says:

    Melvin Sucks, He was making excuses and in his interview he did say Joe got lucky

  22. DroDiego says:

    Done being nice? This dude is one of the cockiest guys I’ve ever seen go into the octagon, Joe was the better fighter and took him out. END OF STORY.

  23. slacker says:

    Guillard and Sonnen have a lot in common. Lots of talent + no gameplan = inconsistent results.

    • Jason N says:

      i like melvin a lot better then Sonnan. Melvin doesn’t run his mouth any where close to the amount Chael does.Both are one demensional though, I give you that.

  24. Donovan says:

    Nigga please!!!
