Peripatetic UFC Lightweight Melvin Guillard explains his latest training camp move to American Top Team was motivated by a disagreement over money with Colorado's Grudge Training Center.

I remember an episode of the Boondocks that stated that a certain type of person originating from Louisiana are in fact "shady".

Uhhhh, yeah. Only because he ran out of willing sparring partners all 3 places.

I don't think its about money, he is the type of person that when he loses he doesn't blame himself. He is going to get a few wins under his belt, get over confident, lose the fight he needs to win to take that next step, then he is off to the next camp claiming they didn't love me enough or pay me enough lol

Guillard, much like Matt Riddle, is someone whose entire life is dictated by impulsive (ie bad) decisions. Given ATTs reputation with fighters popping positive for drug tests and the love of the night life, it's the worst move possible for him.

That's also why fighters should have managers, because at no point should a fighter be arguing percentages with their gym. That should be set in stone long before you make that move to a new gym and should never be up for argument after the fact.

Maybe Guillard should go to a gym that specializes in...... GROUND GAME!!!!!!!!! He wouldn't have to worry about money if he could win some fights instead of tapping like Fred Astaire.

I bet he didn't run out of sparring partners on the ground. If he just wants to stand and bang maybe he should move to boxing.

He needs to get past a turtleneck sweater before he tries to learn BJJ.

That's too bad but whatever, that's their issue. Unfortunately the world revolves around money and everyone "isn't making enough" or whatever. Hopefully he finds success at ATT, wish nothing for the best for him
