Melvin Guillard grabbed a few headlines recently by relaying he would have “dropped” either Gilbert Melendez or Diego Sanchez, provided he had been involved in a similar battle to the one the two engaged in at UFC 166. Then, Guillard also reportedly stated that he used to “drop drop Diego Sanchez in practice all the time,” when the two both trained at Jackson’s MMA. According to “The Dream”, however, that’s not how things went down.
Sanchez clearly read or heard about Guillard’s comments and responded to the fighter via Twitter by stating:
never ounce @Young__Assassin why you trying to get attention by making up fake stories? Im not even gonna start with you OK
@GilbertMelendez @mmacoachwink & everybody @JacksonsMMA know the truth your full of shit melv & never dropped me!
Evidently Guillard’s Twitter account is lighting up or he’s spent some time online, as the powerful lightweight then tweeted:
The media twisting my words that’s why I hate giving interviews now I’m a fighter what you expect me to say that this guys would wipe my ass
Omg people I’m a fighter remember we fight stop taking everything out of context please I ment nothing by that ok we fight that’s what we do
So, clearly Guillard hasn’t scored any points with Sanchez this week. All this drama aside, it doesn’t change the fact “The Young Assassin” is a proven finisher. Thus, Pearson’s recent comments about not wanting to emulate Sanchez-Melendez. Doing so against Guillard probably wouldn’t be wise.
Guillard and Pearson will meet in the co-main-event of UFC FN 30 tomorrow in Manchester. Stay tuned to MMA Frenzy.com for all your UFC news and coverage.
