With melvin it's also torso and hips. His arms and legs aren't massive, which is what allows him to move so quickly. He has really strong abs and hips which allow him to use judo throws effectively and help him to move past guards once he's on the ground.

What really makes me look at his form is that KO punch that he delivered to Davis, he twists his hips through and pushes with his shoulders, form that kinda resembles Muhammed Ali (it's not because he's black). Generally he's a well rounded fighter and that's what I like to see.

Maybe at some point we'll get to see Guillard v Leben. Now that would be an asskicking that I'd pay $40 to watch.

The fight i saw him lose on TUF he rocked the other fighter but he didnt let his hands go when the other fighter was rocked. Letting him back into the fight and winning it. Aslo the Josh Neer v Melvin 2 that would be somthing i would pay 40 bucks for.

Yeah, his cool composure kinda worked agaisnt him in that fight, but he figured that out and was ready to follow up on Glen Davis when the ref ended the fight.

Unlike some fighters :cough:Leben:cough: Guillard is willing to fix what needs fixing and get better as a fighter.

Josh Neer, Brandon Vera, Forrest Griffin, Spencer Fisher, Melvin Guillard, Georges St. Pierre (he's only 25) the list goes on. UFC has a lot of young fighters that could be future champs themselves.
