UFC Lightweight Melvin Guillard leaves Blackzillians

After a 1-5 run with the Blackzillians, Guillard will be returning to his old home at Jackson's.

It's been a rough year and a half for UFC Lightweight mainstay Melvin Guillard. Back in the fall of 2011, Guillard was on a 5-fight win streak and bordering on contendership. At the same time he left his longtime home at Greg Jackson's MMA to train with the fledgling Blackzillians. Since then, Guillard's fortunes have taken a turn, leaving him at a disappointing 1-4 in his last 5 fights.

Many feel that Guillard's current run and membership with the Florida-based camp are related as the Blackzillians have been on an unimpressive run of their own at the top level of MMA. It seems Guillard shares that sentiment since he announced on Twitter that he'll be leaving the Blackzillians to return to Jackson's MMA:


In his last fight, Melvin lost a competitive split decision to Jamie Varner at UFC 155. Although he avoided the mass-releases by the UFC in February, the veteran does not currently have a fight scheduled. We'll see once that happens whether or not Guillard's problems were more related to his training or the length of his career.

Nice. Hope to see Melvin back on track. He's still relatively young.

The rest of the blackzilians should follow suit if they have any common sense. That camp is a sinkhole of crap training, gameplans and losses for otherwise talented top end fighters.

Let's see how Melvin does back at Jackson's, I'm guessing he's probably gonna fight a bit smarter and get some Ws.

I wouldn't have guessed that Melvin is smarter than the rest of the Blackzillians.

Vitor is NOT losing to Rockhold. I even made a Vitor sig today, if anybody wants to rock it, be my guest.

Won't be long now. Blood is in the water, once a high profile guys leaves they will all be gone soon.
