One of them stylistic matchups here... if Evan wants to stand and trade he's going to sleep and I mean fast.

But if he can turn this into a grappling match he should be able to submit Melvin rather quickly....

exactly how I see it, even if Guillard has improved somewhat on the ground since training with Jacksons.

Dunham by some submission.... say kimura.

Or by one of those guillatines he couldn't pull off on Sherk. He's savvy with those and we saw Nate execute one pretty switly on Melvin not too long ago..

I dont see a problem with him standing with Melvin and I think you might be overrating his striking a little bit, its good but he's not a premier striker IMO.

I think Dunham will beat him standing or on the ground. Dunham still needs some work but I feel he's already better than Guillard.

I think this is an awesome matchup!

I couldn't call a winner here.

Yeah I really don't see Dunham beating Melvin Guillard in a striking match. Melvin is too explosive, too experienced and he hits way too hard for Dunham to try and prove himself with.

It would be downright foolish for Evan to trade with him.

Why?

What has Guillard done in his career to give him so much credit with his power/striking?

Because he has KO'd a few average fighters in his career? I have never seen anything that spectacular from him. He does have power for LW...but he doesn't KO/TKO anyone relevant.

He's TKOed 16 opponents.. that's more than a few.

In 36 professional fights he's never been stopped via KO or TKO. If any fighter takes his standup lightly there is a good chance they're gonna come up with the short end of the stick if they make a mistake. His records shows that.

Evan Dunham has never faced a striker with Melvins explosivness or power. He doesn't want to test his standup against this guy.

I agree, Dunham would be smart to grapple with him as he has the distinct advantage. I just don't see why Guillard should be a feared striker. Anyone with power should be respected for what they could do. But I think Dunham could outstrike him, perhaps not finish him standing...but he could out strike him. It isn't the smarter way to try to win that fight but I don't see Guillard as some real good striker.
