Melvin Guillard: ‘I Will Be UFC Champion’

“People don’t realize how hard it is not only to fight in the UFC but stay in the UFC. I’ve been in the UFC for nine years straight. I haven’t been cut or kicked to another promotion and I’m proud of that. Will I get a title shot? Yes. Will I be champion? Yes. I haven’t given up on myself. [UFC champion] Anthony Pettis is a good fighter, but I feel like I’m bigger, stronger and faster. I can beat anybody in my weight class. I have to go make a statement against Michael Johnson and then I see myself fighting for the title within two fights.”

‘UFC Fight Night London’ co-headliner, Melvin Guillard, is still confident in his skillset despite winning just two of his last seven bouts inside the UFC’s Octagon.

Think he can deliver on this?
