    So he says that he got to pick his opponent. Picked the easiest opponent for him to highlight reel and than trash talked him by calling him irrelevant.

    It hurts sometimes, it really does.

    Always hated Melvin.

    Hope this backfires and blows up in his face.

    In a perfect world, Melvin and Pitbull would both be KO'd within the first round.

    Idk man it could be a calculated statement that Scott Coker told him to say. Think about it. It lets UFC fighters know how much better they'd be treated at Bellator, and how much more control and freedom they'd have over their careers at Bellator. I want to see a bunch of UFC fighters jump ship and go over there, personally. It'd be the best thing for mma as a whole, right now.

    I'm pretty sure this is nothing new, promotions giving guys a few different options.

    Being allowed to pick an opponent? Not a terrible thing.

    Following up by calling the guy you chose irrelevant? Ridiculously stupid but then Melvin's never been the brightest of bulbs.

    Yeah it would be great for MMA if a bunch of fighters chose to fight opponents that no one wants to see them fight.

    Does he really mean something like, "Bellator listed a few fighters they would really like to see me fight and then asked, of these three who would you like to fight?"

    Yeah it would be great not to be able to see the best fighters fight each other.

    Only mma fans care this much about another man's account balance

    Guillard (32-14-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) was given a choice between UFC veteran John Alessio and Brandon Girtz for a headlining debut at Bellator 141, which takes place Friday at Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. He chose Girtz (12-4 MMA, 4-2 BMMA), who is 4-2 in the promotion, and hopes to fight on as many Bellator cards as possible.
