Melvin Paul Guillard, Jr. (born March 30, 1983) is an American mixed martial artist (MMA) currently fighting at lightweight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He debuted with the company on The Ultimate Fighter 2 television series, losing in the first welterweight elimination bout to Josh Burkman. After years of hard work, Guillard finally received his blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Ricco Rodriguez in 2008.[1]

MMA career

In 2005 Guillard fought against Roger Huerta. After Guillard took a competitive decision victory, the fight was ruled a no contest after Huerta appealed the commission making an accusation that Guillard was greasing between rounds.

Guillard later participated in The Ultimate Fighter 2, but was eliminated from the competition. Guillard returned at the season finale, defeating Marcus Davis by technical knockout. Fighting again at welterweight, Guillard lost his next fight, against Josh Neer, by triangle choke submission – which surprised many in attendance. Guillard seemed to control the fight until then, opening a large cut on Neer's forehead in the process.

When the lightweight division was reinstated at UFC 58, Guillard began to transition to the lighter weight class. He made his lightweight debut in the UFC at UFC 60, defeating Rick Davis by first round knockout. On September 23, 2006 Guillard fought former WEC lightweight champion Gabe Ruediger, at UFC 63. Guillard won the fight via KO with a body blow.

Guillard lost his fight against Rich Clementi at UFC 79 by rear-naked choke at 4:40 of the first round. Both before and after the bout there was heated trash talking and gesturing by both fighters.

Guillard was slated to fight Spencer Fisher at UFC 90 in Chicago on October 25, 2008, but was replaced by Shannon Gugerty due to a torn ACL.

Guillard defeated Gleison Tibau at TUF 9 Finale by split decision June 20, 2009 in a controversial fight where many had Tibau as the winner. Tibau scored numerous takedowns, but was unable to inflict much damage on the ground.

Guillard was defeated via guillotine choke by Nate Diaz on September 16, 2009 at UFC Fight Night 19.[2]

Guillard is expected to face Ronnys Torres on February 6, 2010 at UFC 109.[3]

Cocaine use

Guillard fought The Ultimate Fighter 2 winner Joe Stevenson in the main event at UFC Fight Night 9 on April 5, 2007 and was defeated by guillotine choke in only 27 seconds after being dropped by a jab from Stevenson. Guillard publicly accused Stevenson of using Human Growth Hormones (HGH), but was later found to have submitted a urine sample positive for cocaine. After the fight, the Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended Guillard for eight months and fined him $2,100.[4]

Personal life

Guillard has a wife named Tache.[5]
