Saw this posted in the HW's and thought some may be interested in seeing this. Good session:
YouTube - Roger Huerta and Melvin Guillard Sparring
Melvin's boxing and kickboxing are both excellent. Given his lack (despite his wrestling background) of grappling ability maybe he should give up MMA and just box.
Melvin is a good friend of mine. Melvin was the Louisiana state kickboxing champion. He did fight Huerta and beat him by decision. Melvin is a good fighter with a wrestling background but unless he learns how to defend against JJ then he is not going to make it very far in MMA. The reason most people do not stay with MT is that it does not pay enough. MMA is where the money is.
I don't know what they were trying to work on, but it sure wasn't defense. They might've been tired or working on some kind of technique, but I thought it would be better.
Melvin looks like he has a decent jab. He really should use it more.
