If Joe Lauzon and Joe Stevenson can rock him with a punch I'm pretty sure Sanchezcould. Guillard's chin and ground game is beyond trash and Sanchez actually has a very solid ground game.
Guillard's ground game ain't nothing special, but if one tries to get him there it usually turns out to be pretty painful for them. I think Guillard's takedown defence outweighs any of Sanchez takedown offense. I admit, Guillard's chin is a lil suspect at times, but I don't think he'd have anything to worry about with Sanchez. Sanchez is an aggressive haymaker type of guy, whereas regardless of how you feel about Guillard, he shows flashes of brilliance standing up. I think Sanchez would get stopped by Guillard if he couldn't take it to the ground. If he did get it to the ground then, yeah, he'd be at an advantage, but is a big if.
A fight between him and Nate would be more competitive, I feel. Though I would def. be cheering Nate on.
