    I took the above GIF trying to be objective. From my perspective, on fight night Melvin had a bit of height. Jackson a bit more muscle.

    Regardless of how those two size up, I still feel that overall Guillard is too small to be fighting at middleweight.

    Yeah I don't see anything. I see the facebook ID when I quote it but can't get it to play. Regardless I watched the fight yesterday. What is it of?

    Acoording to Tapology Guillard is 176cm to Jacksons 173cm.
    They are basically both Welterweights at this point I guess. Adesanya could probably make WW as well.

    The differnece is that Guillard has been fighting 10 years longer and imo it doesn't really make a difference anymore at which weight he fightsin regard to his career, although he might get a few more KOs at 155 or 170

    I guess we can both agree here that this time , Guillard was not slain by a giant :)

    It’s pretty sad that people are saying this is a good match up. I understand that people miss Pride but Rizin is 100% dogshit.

    It’s even ok but is it good? 2 guys fighting to stay off the streets who have glass chins.

    I mean they ain't prospects, but two old names going at it can be fun.

    The more of their recent fights I see, the more I think Gomi is the one in trouble.

    Brandon Girtz is a stud??

    Tough guy but not a fighter I would consider a stud

    More fair to say that Guillard has overall been facing solid competition.
    Definitely a few tough challenges in there.

    I think the matchup is fairly even, it would be best for Rizin to get a Gomi win out of this.

    Despite Guillard's record, he's had a few decent moments, and tried toughing out a few beatdowns for longer than most probably recall.

    Gomi on the other hand hasn't lasted more than 2:37 in any of his last 6 regardless of opponent. He's very vulnerable to knockdowns, and I think Guillard is still skilled enough to take advantage of that.

    Gillard too big. MG by KO, unless yakuza involvement.
