Oh yeah, Michael Johnson and Melvin Guillard are fighting this weekend in England on Fight Pass. I completely forgot. It’s not like this fight is without storylines – the former teammates have seemingly gained a lot of bad blood since Guillard left the Blackzilians. While Guillard has been up and down the last few years, Johnson has looked spectacular of late, and a win over Guillard may push him into the top ten.
Let’s read their bickering.
“To be honest I never really cared for the guy as a person. He is a good fighter, but as a person he is a bit of a douche. He is not one of my favorite people in the world, so I’m excited to get in there and beat him up. I am the one who asked for the fight. Once Ross pulled out, I asked for Michael Johnson. It is a fight that I have been wanting and I am going to make sure I am ready for it.”
He was on the team for a little bit. I helped him, I wanted him to succeed because he was a teammate. He is a good fighter, of course everybody knows Melvin can fight. I got the utmost- it is hard for me to say that I respect somebody that said something about me like that, so I won’t say that I have all the respect in the world for him. I respect him as a fighter, and we are going to fight and we will see how it is. I am not going to say we are great friends, and to him it doesn’t sound like we’re friends at all. That is okay with me because I have got enough friends and I don’t need any new ones. I will let Melvin talk and run his mouth and sell the fight. I have no problem with Melvin, we are going to go in there and fight.
If he says he beat me up, I will let him say he beat me up. I will let other people tell that story and see how it goes. I am not one to brag and run around saying ‘oh I did this, oh I did that’. The people that know are all that matters. For Melvin to say I was afraid of him in practice and he beat my ass in practice, I will go ahead and say that that is a lie. Of course he was the bigger guy, because Melvin is a bigger 155’er. Of course sometimes he was stronger than me because I was training all week and he wasn’t. He would train once a week. I am not worried about Melvin. When he actually showed up to practice, we practiced, that is it.
