Melvin Guillard has confirmed his decision to leave the Blackzilians camp in Florida and return to New Mexico. Guillard will train again with Greg Jackson at the Jackson-Winkeljohn gym.
“I’m no longer a Blackzilian I went back to where I belong Jackson’s,” Guillard posted on Twitter Sunday night.
The 29-year-old Guillard (30-12-2) has lost two straight and four of his last five inside the Octagon. He was knocked out by Donald Cerrone and suffered a split decision defeat to Jamie Varner in 2012.
Prior to his recent rough patch, “The Young Assassin” had won eight of nine fights, including five in a row.
