Melvin Guillard says he’s the best at lightweight even though he doesn’t have a gold belt around his waist, and also has his eyes set on a fight for the UFC 136 card in Houston.

Guillard needs to worry about calling out top five opponents if he wants to get his hands on the belt.

he should fight Jlau only to show he can't be subbed as easy anymore. I think reematching Tibau would make sense, since we are not talking about top 5 fighters.

Melvin only wants to fight those who can beat. Siver, Gomi and nows Lauzon. If you're trying to push for a title shot go after Jim Miller, Pettis or Clay.

I really think there needs to be an interim belt.

However, I think Lauzon is smart and is a ground wizard and would prolly sub Guillard as long as he can get it to the ground.

I would like winner of Ben Henderson/Jim Miller vs Guillard for interim belt.

I think Guillard wants to fight every Saturday!

Guillard has been looking amazing since he began at Jackson MMA, his last two performances, specifically. I believe he asked for a fight with Miller, and Miller's camp essentially said "Keep training, if Bendo gets injured you're in"

I was not really pleased though with one of his statements at the UFC 132 post fight press conference, though. He was sitting one seat away from Dennis Siver, and pretty much looked at him and said (paraphrasing) "You want to fight I'll put you to sleep again"

You KO a dude in less than a minute and call him out again? That's pretty weak, in my opinion. Sure, Siver has gone 7-1 inside the octagon since that loss, but still.... I don't think a rematch would prove anything, or go any differently.

Now he is calling out J-Lau? Lauzon has had some good showings lately, but in all fairness, I believe Lauzon would get stumped.

Guillard knows that title belt is in limbo, and I think he just wants to wreck as many fools as he can until he gets a crack at it, so he's calling out anyone and everyone.

but he's not going to get a title shot without beating anyone important, so he can call out as many fools as he wants.

I like the Guillard-Tibau fight. Both have looked impressive lately. I don't know who's improved more: Guillard from a discipline and TDD standpoint, or Tibau from a cardio and boxing standpoint. They'd both test each other and I'm reasonably confident someone's walking out with a beating.

Tibau won that fight over Guillard, even though Guillard got the split dec nod. No scores were read which I found odd.

I'm a tad surprised that Mel isn't calling out for a rematch with Roller

you really think Siver is going to get KO's again in 30 seconds? he has much improved striking since then and both are right near being a #1 contender so why not? we're almost guaranteed a KO anyways so make the fight

He may be the best at 155, but I'm the best LHW in the world.

To prove it, I will fight Elvis Sinosic.

Melvin needs to fight guys like Guida, Penn, Edgar, and Maynard and win before I consider him anywhere near the best. Granted he's been on a nice run as of late but I don't feel he's there yet
