Compare Guillard's Entrances To Guida's, Miller's, and Ortiz's

Recommended Posts

Lots of people keep saying that Guillard has some mental focus issues because he was "showboating" whatever the **** that means. But many fighters have flashy and flamboyant entrances (Guida, Tito, Miller) yet nobody accuses them of having mental issues when they lose.

 

With Guillard, we have an extremely athletic fighter, so everyone automatically says "oh he must have mental issues." I think there is a double standard being applied here.

How was he acting like he won? Explain

 

well the other guys don't spend the first 20 seconds of the fight with their chin sticking out, hands down, taunting their opponents while throwing reckless shots and giving complete disregard for their opponents skills.

 

Even Nick Diaz has more respect then that.

Melvin doesnt come out jmping around singing and acting a fool usually. He seemed overly ****y this fight and payed the price. Just because you dont agree doesnt mean it isnt true

What it seems people don't get, is fighters aren't all cut from the same mold where they all have the same skills. Everyone goes "Why doesn't he just work on his wrestling? Why doesn't he just do this?" Fighter's have there own style and some fighters really don't know how to 'play it safe'. Maybe not exactly what you're talking about but I think it ties in.

Nope. Actually Diaz is notorious for sticking his chin out, dropping his hands, and taunting...even did it against Daley.

 

Silva also does this.

 

So does Mitrione.

 

Also Evans.

 

Nobody says "oh must be a mental issue" about them

 

Double standard

Well first off he should stop wearing those sun glasses where does he think he is at the beach!

Edit: Barroni is the only fighter that can pull that off!

Not while punches are coming at their face though lol, they all block or evade, even if they go straight back to taunting. Melvin had complete disregard for Joe's punches and it cost him.

He is very good; he just got caught.

 

He would smash Edgar.

 

Melvin looks awful striking against good competition and just throw bombs until he knocks out his opponents when he knows they can't strike, of course his hands will look good.

 

Melvin has a bad chin too, dropped by Lauzon and Joe Stevensons, both small shots, Submitted many times, doesn't have great takedown defense and couldn't outstrike Gleison Tibau, Jeremely Stephens or Rony Torres. Lets face it folks he isn't the knockout machine, dynamic athlete who will rule the division like a lot hoped.

It was his eyes, he was seeing stars(the "hulk" Hogan kind) before Lauzon put his lights out!!! Ive seen melvin fight guys he thought were tough before he was has more focus than he displayed in this last fight. and obviously im not the only one who thought it, as soon as he came out!!! He looked like carlos newton VS Matt Hughes to me....carlos's walk out was ridiculous and he lost... same kinda circumstance!!!!

Definately a double standard

 

Definitely agree, but there's no doubt in my mind he was looking past JLau in this fight and it's not just based upon JLau assessment of Melvins' behavior the week of the fight as heard in past interviews. He either underestimated Lauzon's power or clearly thought he was invincible during the fight. I just don't think he would have had the same approach going into a fight with a top five guy...certainly not inside the Octagon at least. He was too amped up and overzealous in his approach. He needed to take some chill pills so that he could think clearly in there, otherwise we wouldn't be writing about this.

They dont get finished in the first round by guys that werent even given a chance either. Your comparisions make no sense. Gulliard wasnt fighting the way he normally does he was clowning around that has nothing to do with Silva, Diaz, Mitrione, or Evens

Guillard did the exact same thing in the Roller fight and it didn't cost him (and multiple other fights). He was just more reckless than usual in his approach simple as that....but there's rarely a fight that he doesnt fight like that, because he knows he's quicker and more powerful than most he steps in there with. It would also be safe to assume that he wills to be a crowd favorite and therefore be an exciting fighter. It just happened to catch up with him at the worst time....or maybe it's for the better depending on how you look at it. Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility. A undisciplined, proud Guillard was pretty dangerous...what are you going to do with a Guillard thats totally focused and takes nothing for granted??

I agree with all of this.

 

Unfortunately for everyone though, Ben Henderson is going to be LW champ by mid 2012.
