To be fair...And this is probably the first, and last time I'll ever defend Guillard, Condit outweighs Guillard by a good 20 pounds and hits like a damn baseball bat.

I didn't see Lauzon taking this fight and much less hurting Guillard striking. I think Guillard opened up way to quick, He went right in and started swinging for the fences and Lauzon caught him.

In other words, he lost. Decisively.

Yes, I was just saying I thought Guillard would have done much better had he not started off that aggressive.

I felt bad for Melvin, this was a very winnable fight for him but he was overhyped, probably because he was close to his hometown or something. The dancing around was him just being really happy about the situation. He's battled drugs and all sorts of other stuff and was THIS close to a title shot so I guess he just felt like he was in the best place ever in his career. I dunno if he underestimated Lauzon or not, but I dunno how he could be rocked from a jab.

I don't know, I didn't really think Melvin got "rocked", yet he got hit, but he looked more off balance than anything. My problem is, once it went to the ground he looked completely clueless and just gave up his back and got choaked.

Did we all see the Stephens(Stevens) Pettis fight? How long did rear naked choke attempt last?

I really like Melvin and want to see him do good. He has some serious natural talent and is amazing in the striking game. But unless he switches to boxing, he is going to need to dedicate himself 100% to defending the ground game. I mean like, don't bother throwing punches at all during traing, just grabble.

That being said, he may need to follow Rampage into Boxing. This MMA stuff isn't for everyone.

It is all about matchups though. Because while Melvin may not be able to beat Joe Lauzon, he sure looks like he could have beaten either guy in the LW final.

Melvin is nowhere near in a position to where he would need to switch to boxing. Dude 29-9-2 with good wins. He was lining himself up for a title fight. I think he will be fine.
