That fight killed me. Melvin looked great on the feet and was shrugging off everything from Nate. Then for some reason Melvin started showboating and did the sloppiest double leg right into a lazy guillotine. No disrespect to Nate but that could have been all Guillard if he had his head on straight.

Looked like he didn't want to be anywhere near that cage after MJ hurt him in the 2nd.

yeah very underwhelming performance from guillard tonight.. a win tonight would have done plenty for his stock but he always seems to falter in these types of fights.

He didn't really know how to close the distance when MJ was finding his timing with his straight punches. Melvin should've been throwing some more kicks or go for a takedown.

Such a strange fight. I was wondering what the hell Guillard was waiting for. The suggestion that he was throwing the fight wouldn't surprised me based on how reluctant he was to do anything of worth.

I've been trying to figure out what was wrong with Guillard but I think MJ is just that good. He did the same thing to Lauzon and Tibau, no easy task.

He looked like he just never loosened up.

Either that, or Melvin's athletic ability and quickness are disintegrating very quickly. Some of his punches looked uncharacteristically weak. You can say a lot of things about Melvin, but I don't ever remember him looking lethargic.
