Former UFC fighter Melvin Guillard is in some hot water at the moment after getting involved in a bar scuffle in Denver, Colorado, early Monday morning which resulted in one man being knocked unconscious.
We can see in the video below from TMZ Sports, that after some pushing and shoving the former UFC lightweight and TUF 2 competitor, Guillard, knocks a man out cold with a brutal punch.
However, it doesn’t end there, as a female patron then rushes at Guillard and it looks like he hits her too but at least she appeared to take it much better than the other guy before Guillard was restrained by the crowd.
Guillard, who was always known for his knockout power, is no doubt in some serious trouble now as, according to TMZ Sports, a Denver PD spokesperson who spoke to them confirmed that it was, in fact, Melvin Guillard involved and that a warrant has subsequently been issued for his arrest.
Guillard, who’s also known as ‘The Young Assassin’ (who’s not all that young anymore for this kind of stuff), was at one point one of the best lightweight fighters in the world. He holds impressive victories over very tough guys like Jeremy Stephens, Gleison Tibau, Evan Dunham, and Gesias Cavalcante, but consistency has always been an issue for Guillard who always seemed to falter in the big fights.
His MMA career particularly has fallen on hard times as of late as he’s lost 8 in a row now and has also had some issues making weight and this current situation isn’t exactly helping matters.
Guillard has also recently competed across the pond in bare-knuckle boxing matches, which, actually, is getting quite popular now, especially stateside, and Guillard himself seems particularly adept to that ruleset. This unfortunate situation you can see in the video below probably puts a halt to any aspirations that he may have had in that arena, however, and hopefully, he turns himself in to police and starts cleaning his act up.
