Melvin Guillard UFC 119-081-478x270UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard tweeted on March 24 that he was leaving the Blackzillian Team to rejoin Jackson-Winkeljohn.

“Im no longer a blackzillian I went back to where I belong Jackson’s,” the tweet read.

Sources inside the Jackson’s-Winkeljohn camp, however, indicated to that Guillard was not welcome back at the training facility… but he has found a new home.

Guillard has landed at the Grudge Training Center in Colorado.

“Heading to my first workout with team grudge,” Guillard tweeted on Wednesday.  “I sleep in a basement these are the thing’s I’ve been missing felt good let’s get it.”

During Tuesday’s UFC Tonight, former UFC light heavyweight titleholder and Blackzillian Rashad Evans spoke about Guillard’s departure and his future.

“With Melvin, it’s just finding where Melvin is comfortable at.  I think that’s one thing that Melvin really needs to look at.  What is the best Melvin?  Where does the best Melvin compete from?  I think it has a lot to do with what is going on inside of him.  It’s not so much where he’s at,” said Evans.

“Melvin is one of the most talented athletes inside the UFC, but he doesn’t know how to find what’s inside of him that gives him that consistent competitive edge,” added Evans. “Once he finds that, no matter where he’s going to be, he’s going to be successful.”

Guillard is scheduled to face Mac Danzig at UFC on Fox 8 on July 27.

    I think Jackson’s camp got some arrogant punks im sure
    Melvin was humble and they still want him out he is just
    trying to find his way I hope he becomes a champion
    someday he is a fantastic fighter

    • uncle

      He was very respectful and whats the differance with Diego he left and they let him back maybe it’s good
      for Melvin to stay away they might turn him into a
      point fighter

    And this is why, i hate Jackson’s Camp. Every time i see Greg jackson on a guy’s corner i hope this guy looses. That is how much i hate that camp!!

    • Oswald Cobblepott

      Your an idiot. Jackson’s camp is progressive and professional. Other camps do not compare which is why they produce the most contenders

  • datdudechris…AGAIN!!!!!!

    good for him because i believe that blackzilian camp is like 2-25 as an overall record
