Melvin Guillards walk around weight?

Anyone know or care to guess what Melvin Guillard's walk around weight is? He looks huge at 155 and extremely ripped, Im curious what his normal weight is. I'd guess hes around 180'ish...i know he fought at 170 a few times but he looks huge at lightweight.

175 lbs would be my guess. He has no trouble dropping though.

I don't know he seems bigger than that, i'm 175 and in pretty good shape at 5'8" and he looks huge compared to me. I was thinking atleast 180 even though i know that would be a big cut

He has said before he didnt used to cut to make 170, that was his walk around weight.

That was a few years ago though, maybe he has bulked a bit since then.

He is only 5"9 and very ripped, both of which make you appear larger on TV.

It is really hard to actually gauge somones weight/size when you have only seen them on TV. Lightweights can look like heavyweights if you haven't seen the stats or know the fighters. The camera zooms in much closer on two 135lb 5"6 guys than it does on two 265 lb 6"4 guys.

You can pretty much guarantee he's not over 180 lbs (in shape); he's probably closer to 175 lbs. I'm guessing he weighs 170 lbs or a touch over on fight night.

Think of it this way: He has GSP's upper body minus the legs.

But if he is a legit 5'9", it's hard to imagine him being anything short of 170 lbs.
