Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White shared his post-fight thoughts after the UFC on FX: "Guillard vs. Miller" event from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 20, 2012.
The big storyline coming out of the show -- the first-ever in the FX network -- was the performance of Melvin Guillard, who once again showed flashes of brilliance, but once again wound up on the wrong end of a submission courtesy of Jim Miller.
That's now 10 losses in his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career, nine of which have come by way of tapout. Certainly a gaping hole that a 10-year veteran should have plugged by now, but one that he mysteriously hasn't.
White weighed in:
"I don't know what it is with Melvin -- I've been saying this since the second season of The Ultimate Fighter. Even yesterday at the weigh ins, joking around: I'm waiting for this kid to take things serious. I don't know. I don't know what to say."
That's because just yesterday during the UFC on Fox 2 conference call, Chael Sonnen boldly predicted that if he defeated Michael Bisping next Saturday (Jan. 28, 2012) on network television to earn the next middleweight number one contender position, "The Spider" would find another way to avoid the rematch.
"I 100 percent, right here, right now, guarantee that if Chael Sonnen wins that fight [against Michael Bisping] Anderson Silva will fight Chael Sonnen this summer. And it will probably [take place in Brazil]."
