Melvin Guillard: "Nobody’s Talking About" Kenny Florian

"I’ve got mad respect for Kenny. He’s a good friend. I talk to him all the time. There’s no animosity, but of course he’s going to feel like that when I’m on top right now. He’s had his shot. He’s had two chances to be a champion, he didn’t make it."

"Now him asking to fight me? He’s only doing that because he’s in the shadows and nobody’s talking about him. He’s not in the spotlight. ...Honestly at this point in my career, and me and my agent already agreed on it, I’m not going to get anything out of beating Kenny Florian."

"I’m looking for a No. 1 contender or I want a champion. That’s all I want right now. If I have to take another stepping stone and Kenny wants to throw himself in there, I promise you if that fight happens, I’m going to [expletive] him up and I’m going to make it impressive."
