Melvin Guillard can't make up his mind.

"The Young Assassin" recently knocked out Shane Roller at UFC 132 on July 2 in Las Vegas. The blowout win was his fifth in a row and marked his eighth win in nine fights.

At the post-fight press conference he was taking aim at Dennis Siver, ready and willing to throw down with the man he knocked out back in 2008.

Then, with championship gold on his brain, he turned his sights on Jim Miller, the bully on the block that all the top lightweights want a piece of.

However, perhaps realizing the low percentage chance either bout has of actually coming to fruition, Guillard has since turned his attention to more realistic goals.

Such as Joe Lauzon.

"I don't want to try to throw a name out there, but I was thinking maybe I could ask them to fight Joe Lauzon. Right now technically nobody else is available, he already fought and walked away with a submission of the night victory, he didn't take any damage in his last fight so maybe he'll want to take the fight."

Indeed, as told to, Guillard vs. Lauzon would undoubtedly present an interesting clash of styles and both guys are available and (likely) more than willing to fight sooner rather than later.

In fact, Melvin made sure to say he would love to fight at the upcoming UFC 136 event in Houston, Texas on Oct. 8. But hey, if UFC needs another great match-up on Spike TV for the "Battle on the Bayou" fight card, he's down for that, too.

That's an attitude that reflects well on future fight bookings but is Guillard, who badly wants to reach a title shot in a top heavy division, well-served to ask for a fight against Lauzon, who, while an outstanding fighter, is nowhere near the top?

Let's hear it, Maniacs.
