“I know a lot of people look at it like, ‘How are you at Jackson’s and you train with Rashad?’ Well, Rashad’s been like a brother to me since Season 2. Jon … he’s my boy, he’s my teammate. I stay out of their beef, and I keep myself neutral to everything. For everybody that don’t know, that’s what it is. I still love Rashad like a brother, and I love Jon like a teammate. There are gonna be other times when I’m gonna go to Imperial, and I’m probably gonna train there again … Until it presents a problem as far as my coaching goes, then I’ll deal with it when it comes. I’m my own boss; my coaches work for me, so it’s whatever I choose that I want to do to be successful in this game. I’m going to take those options.”

The fast rising Melvin Guillard tells the folks over at sherdog.com that he has no remorse for switching up his training camp to Rashad Evans “Blackzilians” over his typical home over at Greg Jacksons MMA.

The two camps are obviously at opposite ends of the “Friends Spectrum” so is Guillard decision a wise one or is there room for one-fighter to train at two separate rivaling gyms?
