    Now, "The Dream" has responded to "The Young Assassin's" claims saying that in reality it was him -- and everybody else at Jackson's MMA -- doing the dropping on Guillard.

    From his conversation on "The MMA Hour:"

    "Oh my God, this guy, too. These guys want to run their mouths. And, you know what it is? They just want attention. They see a guy like me fighting my ass off in the cage getting all the fans attention, because even in a loss, people talk more about me than Gilbert Melendez because it was my heart that made that fight exciting. If it wasn't for my heart and me coming forward and going for it, that fight wouldn't have been what it was. These guys see that and they see the attention that I'm getting and they try to talk their way into the spotlight. I was cool with Melvin Guillard before he said that. Here is the thing with Melvin, okay. The guy is an awesome athlete, he is really good, explosive and really fast; but the dude has got a questionable chin. I'm telling you, I've seen everybody in the gym drop him. I've dropped him two times with a straight left. And that's true, I am not lying. The guy has a questionable chin. Joe Stevenson dropped him with a jab. Joe Lauzon dropped him with a jab. He doesn't have an iron chin like me. For him to say he dropped me all the time is a bunch of bullshit. You can ask Mike Winkeljohn, you can ask Greg Jackson, you can ask anybody in the gym that was actually there. The coaches are going to say they can't remember they saw the last time Diego get dropped, but, Adlan Amagov dropped me with a kick, a liver kick, that was the hardest I've ever been kicked. But, yeah, I don't get dropped very much. If it is, it's with a body kick or something like that. But, it's part of the sport. For him to say he drops me all the time, that is the biggest, untrue biggest shit I've ever heard in my life. I feel sorry for Melvin that he has to drop that low to bring himself up, or try to bring himself up because it really makes him look stupid. Because he's lying. I think the guy is just lost because he can't find a camp. He's here, he's there, he's moving from Albuquerque to Houston to Dallas to Denver to Top Team. He has a lot of talent but I don't know what will make him talk crap about me."

    Time will tell. I think most MMA fans are betting against him, if he destroys pearson it won't change his status in the minds of most who write him off. I hope he does get the strap one day, the first UFC champion from my hometown!

    Diego Sanchez fires back at knockout claim of Guillard, who says words twisted
    http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/1...-words-twisted

    "Im not even gonna start with you OK," he wrote.

    But if you've seen Sanchez's barnburner with Gilbert Melendez at this past Saturday's UFC 166, you know that he doesn't back away from a fight.

    "Everybody @JacksonsMMA know the truth your full of s--t melv & never dropped me!" Sanchez wrote today.

    The reaction from the UFC lightweight and the MMA world has Guillard pointing the finger at reporters who wrote the story, which came out of an open media workout in support of Saturday's event on FOX Sports 2 and MMAjunkie.com.

    Guillard was asked about his reaction to Sanchez vs. Melendez, which is a shoo-in for "Fight of the Year" and already is hailed as one of the best fights in UFC history.

    "I would have dropped either one of them," Guillard told MMAjunkie.com. "I used to drop Diego Sanchez in practice all the time. When I hit people, I hurt people. That's just what I do."

    Guillard, who left Jackson-Winkeljohn's in 2011 and earlier this year was blocked from returning, today tweeted, "the media twisting my words that's why I hate giving interviews now I'm a fighter what you expect me to say that this guys would wipe my ass."

    Several hours later, he again said he's been misinterpreted.

    "Omg people I'm a fighter remember we fight stop taking everything out of context please I ment nothing by that ok we fight that's what we do," he wrote.

    Too much talk from him all the time. He thinks that he is much better than he really is.

    of course he woulda dropped either of em, he's known for his ko power, neither would be dumb enough to sit there and go blow to blow with him either and would have taken him down and subbed him

    Guillard does as well against upper B level fighters as Bisping does against top ten fighters.

    A lot of Pearson's technique involves slipping and countering. That's high risk against a guy like Melvin who not only has ferocious power but very fast hands. Pearson may be better served getting this one to the ground.

    if Pearson can stand in the pocket with Melvin and win ill be very impressed.
