Guillard - Looks like a force at Jackson's, starts to spend time at Imperial, loses his first fight in years, goes there full time, loses again after dominating.

I understand camps go through this and Guillard was expected because he sucks in general but Jesus Christ, can you imagine if Rashad loses to Phil Davis?

What is wrong with those people?
Melvin has always had weak sub defense even when he trained at Jacksons.

Haha, well it's not as if you can "unlearn" sub defense.

Some techniques are more effect than others, slight changes in rolling habits good and bad can be formed. I'm just saying who didn't know these guys had these issues before they joined the same team.

I am not going to put it on the whole team but rather look at it on a fighter by fighter basis. They just have to find the right fit at a camp and for Guuillard for whatever reason that camp is Jacksons; he has the physical ability to be a serious contender if he gets his head together. For this to happen he needs to go back to Jackson's IMO. I am not really a big fan of Guillard but I did feel kind of bad for him last night, he seems kinda on edge and may be headed down the wrong road w/ too much more disappointment. Fan or not, I hate to see that happen to anybody.....

+Michael Johnson

For some reason, I didn't think Guillard looked healthy.

He's not as fast or explosive and his striking isn't as sharp as it was when he fought Evan Dunham, etc.

Maybe florida has too much of a party scene & arizona is a better environment?
