UFC FN 37′s Melvin Guillard Says He’s “Never Really Cared” For Michael Johnson
By FCF Staff
Although Melvin Guillard and Michael Johnson used to be training partners, evidently the two won’t have any issue fighting each other tomorrow at UFC Fight Night 37. In fact, according to Guillard, not only is he willing to fight his former Blackzilians teammate, but it sounds like he’s looking forward to the opportunity.
Guillard, who originally was scheduled to fight Ross Pearson before the latter withdrew due to an injury, recently told UFC.com:
“I wanted to fight him since I left the Blackzilians,” said Guillard. “We’ve had a few words at some fights and when (original opponent) Ross (Pearson) pulled out, I said I wanted to fight him. We were never friends. We only trained together. I never hung out with him outside the gym and I never really cared for him because he has this ‘I’m the s**t’ attitude and he’s not the s**t. So there is a little bit of bad blood there.”
UFC FN 37 will be hosted by the O2 Arena in London, England, and will be streamed via Fight Pass throughout North America.
