Guillard is with a team who just enhances his cockiness.

Why does he think he is going to just KO everyone in the 1st round? Does he ever have a gameplan? Who throws like 3 or 4 flying knees in a row? Especially when you are trying not to get taken down?

He is too cocky. And never worries about just focusing on winning the fight. He deserves to lose. It seems like he just trains his striking all day. And gives his BJJ a few minutes.

He has KO power. But his record isn't all that. He loses to any of the top 10 quality fighters he gets.

Wonder who they give him next. I'd suggest Etim or Stout.

I've seen fighters with so so stand up go to thailand or holland for months to improve it, I'd like to see melvin go somewhere and do the same for his ground game... imaging him as a bjj black belt? hahahhaha crazy right? but it's what he should be looking to do.

he's 28 so he can still try to seriously fix his bjj. but he's not young in the sport, he has like 6000 fights..(ok a bit less but you all get the point) he's annoying to be a fan of.

as for those saying the LW division went from stacked to crap, this is what happens in stacked divisions, anyone one can lose to anyone and you will see win streaks derailed

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

Jim Miller is one tough little dude..I like that guy. His stand up is average at best, but he can take it all day. His ground game is just off the chart.

Melvin just doesn't seem to work on his weaknesses enough. I like to watch him fight, but he has lost so many times by his own stupidty.

What I came away from this win was super impressed with Benson Henderson....Because that dude dominated Miller on the Ground...and that's a tough thing too do

His main problem is that he wants to be a celebrity more than he wants to be a martial artist. He wants to be the Kobe Bryant or Reggie Bush of the UFC. He's way too concerned about being on a highlight reel. Guillard obviously has the physical tools to be a top five UFC Lightweight, but he seriously needs direction in the worst way possible. Sadly, if training at Jackson's can't pull it all together for him, I don't know what will. I think that Guillard should go back to training at Jackson's because at least he was kept in check and he was improving. I just don't get how you can have trained in the arts for ten years, and still have such atrocious jiu-jitsu. I don't know if it's his own apathy or what, but Guillard makes fundamental mistakes that you're taught from the get go to avoid, it's painful and hilarious to watch.

Jim Miller is a TOUGH man and an AWESOME guy. He's definitly in my top five favorite fighters, hopefully he'll build off of this win and keep improving.

Guillard's fights crack me up, I feel bad for the guy. Give the man a couple books and let him learn some mental discipline already, he must have a huge ego and a short attention span.

Good fight, Melvin's issue is gameplanning. He should have abandoned the flying knee because he was doing everything right - keep distance, defend takedowns and outbox Miller.

All credit to Miller though, he weathered the storm and capitalised on his first opportunity to end the fight.

I think Guillard would benefit hugely if he trained with Rampage Jackson's team, their defensive wrestling and boxing is consistantly impressive. Rampage, Bisping, Kongo all have it, they could make Melvin much more competetive with good grapplers.

Melvin looked good coming in, but he was stuck basically trying to keep Miller off of him the whole time. Not a lot of damage was really done, and Miller kept coming forward.

Melvin landed one knee to Millers face that got his attention, but it was only delaying the inevitable. He seemed to land another knee, but then it hit the ground. I definitely didn't have much doubt once it was on the ground.

It was a good night.

Jesus lol, more than 50 mma fights and he still doesn't know enough to NOT give up our back against a submission guy/and or get tapped out by a RNC. For shame, such a waste of talent.
