Not surprised at this at all that this is coming out. There have been threads about this from other forums since last weekend. Some started by eyewitnesses.

There was probably no arrest because Clementi didn't press charges.

Guillard punched him in the face but didn’t noticeably hurt him.

Thats because you can see internal bleeding. Melivn could KO Rich in a fight with ease. Everything Rich does Melvin does better,

this cant be true or sumthins left out of it cuz melvin would've knocked him out. if he could knock clementi out in a fight then a sucker punch is pretty much a guarranteed KO. n melvin attracts a whole new crowd to the sport so hes not bad for it.

How is a fighter that is exciting to watch bad for the sport? Because he got into a fight outside of the sport.

Face it guys. In a sport where people fight for a living. Not everyone is gonna be the clean cut sharp lookin Rich Franklin, or the most dominatn nice guy in the world GSP.
So him Melvin not liking Rich is bad for the sport? I think it is good. Provides excitement for a fight. If 2 fighters dislike\hate each other they will be willing to go all out in a fight in order to win. Thats what makes some fights just so dam good.

Ehh... No.

Guillard can't grapple worth a shit and that's where Clementi is good. Melvin is a better striker and a better wrestler but Rich takes Melvin to thcool when it comes to grappling.

If a guy of that calibre is talking about bringing guns into the situation, that's bad for the sport. That's bull****. And a sucker punch? I'm not saying all of that is true, but if it is, that's messed up.

So why couldnt Josh Burkamn Finish him on TUF?
Melvin is far better than you think. And he trains with team punishment, They happen to have a few good wrestlers.

And i dont know if Melvin carries a gun. And in a confrontation, people tlak shit. Everyone talks smack. It happens.

I'm skeptical too...I'm sure there's more to it, but I just based that opinion off the information we were given.

i dont doubt that Rich might not like Melvin but who knows exactly waht they said. And who knows about if Melvin really wants to hurt Rich or he was jsut talk.

Remember from TUF that Melvin talked a lot of smack?

I think they are both a little cocky, but if Melvin suckered him that's cowardly IMO.They are both fighter's, unless for some strange reason Melvin feels he is overmatched, it makes no sense. I would actually like to hear them comment personally on a audio or video interview to find out what's true and what isn't.
