“I want to get myself set for retirement and when I’m done with fighting; I feel like I still have at least another 10 years of fighting. People say that’s too long, but I want to fight until my body can’t fight anymore. When it’s over and it’s done and I retire, there’s no going back. I know a lot of guys who retire too young, too early. Once the sport is done, it’s done.
“I’ve been fighting since I was 13 years old. If I can fight until I’m 42, maybe 45; I’m happy with that. For as long as my body allows me. From here on out I want to be more attentive to the business side of it as well as the fight of it. I’m 32 and I want to be able to make a couple million dollars and get filthy rich off of Bellator.”
Former UFC fighter and current Bellator MMA fighter Melvin Guillard has been fighting since he was 13 years-old and is now 32. He told MMAJunkie that he has no plans of retiring anytime soon and would actually like to fight for at least 10 more years.
His ideal retirement age is 43 or 45 and says he just wants to keep fighting and retire filthy rich.
