"For me, when I left Jackson's, I left a great team. Donald was one of my main sparring partners. We went at it in practice. He had his good days. I had my bad ones. I had a lot of bad days, sometimes. But my style is a little bit different now, now that I'm with Coach Henri. More of my kickboxing is built around the Dutch kickboxing. It definitely blows American kickboxing out of the water. I'm definitely the guy that can go and deliver the tools and get the job done. I'm definitely excited about this fight. My whole style is different. I'm not the same fighter when I was at Jackson's. I think it's gonna make for a great fight."
-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight Melvin Guillard, who was recently interviewed by "Inside MMA," will step into the Octagon to face a friend and former training partner when he takes on Donald Cerrone at UFC 150 in Denver, Colo., on Aug. 11, 2012. The Lightweight match up is sure to be a fast-paced brawl between two fighters who, by all rights, should be well acquainted with each other and their respective fighting styles. "The Young Assassin" has a gameplan and it involves using his new and improved kickboxing learned from famed Dutch trainer Henri Hooft to chop down "Cowboy" when they throw down in "The Mile High City." The jury is still out on just how different a fighter Guillard really is since his days at Jackson's MMA.
Never really see a fighter admit to getting owned in the gym.
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.
