Melvin can't blame his camp for the Joe Lauzon fight and losing to Miller was classic Guillard.

Either way I say good for him for not being afraid to make such a bold decision. I wonder if that was a condition of employment with UFC.

LOL at the UFC telling Melvin to not train with those bums or he'll be cut.

No way would they tell him to go back to Greg "Lack of Action" Jackson.

Two months before UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard announced via Twitter that he was returning to Team Jackson-Winkeljohn in Albuquerque, N.M., the gym's leaders voted to keep him from doing so.

Guillard (30-12-2 MMA, 11-7 UFC) had inquired about a potential reunion through former teammates, who then passed word to the gym's administration. The vote was unanimous.


"The Young Assassin" had angered the team in interviews he gave about a move this past year to Florida's "Blackzilians" team, a source close to the MMA team told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Adding to concerns, Guillard has two outstanding assault charges against him from separate incidents in Albuquerque in 2010, records show.

So when the fighter sent his tweet on Sunday – "Im no longer a blackzillian I went back to where I belong Jackson's," he wrote – the team was caught off guard.

"He's not allowed back here," said the source, who asked for anonymity given the sensitive nature of the talks and the team's history with the fighter.

Melvin is a prime example of why the Lightweight division is and was overrated.

Jackson didn't make him a better fighter, fighting Rony Torres, Shane Roller and Evan Dunham who turned out to be a dud made him a better fighter. Kudos to the Jackson camp on this move, he and Rashad will rue the day they left.

No. The camp had already been around before Rashad joined. Although, I do believe Mike Van Arsdale moved to that camp around the same time Rashad came in (someone correct me if I'm wrong). Van Arsdale was the last hope that canp had of ever being any good. After he left, thats when Rashad's career and pretty much the rest of the camp began to spiral down.

I thought Rashad moved to Florida and created it with ex ATT guys like Bigfoot and Santiago.

Poor Melvin, curious to see where he ends up now.

Blackzillians - won't take him back
Jackson - won't have him
Renzo Gracie Combat Team - I doubt Alvarez would okay that
Ceasar Gracie - Don't think Nate would accept him, or wrestlers
Team Alpha Male - his style fits but I don't know if the personality would.

He's likely going to be stuck between Team Quest or Team Xtreme Couture
