UFC Quick Quote: Melvin Guillard is praying Joe Lauzon loses to Anthony Pettis

"In the 10 losses I have in my MMA career, I haven't rematched anyone I've lost to. Not once, I've never really cared for rematches because I felt they won, now I'll move on. Right now, I'm at the point where this fight means something to me, I have something to prove against Joe Lauzon, so this is a rematch I'm asking for. Right now, I'm looking to watch the fights in Japan and I'm praying that he loses to (Anthony) Pettis because I want a rematch against Joe Lauzon. I don't want to fight nobody next but Joe Lauzon. I don't even care how it goes, I just want to see Pettis win and I want an immediate rematch with Joe Lauzon. Hopefully, I can get that rematch by fourth of July in Vegas."

-- As if it wasn't enough for Joe Lauzon to rock and submit Melvin Guillard in just 47 seconds at UFC 136 last Oct. 8, 2011, in Houston, Texas, "J-Lau" also rubbed some salt in the wound by bagging on "The Young Assassin" via Twitter when he was choked out by Jim Miller in his very next fight. That, combined with some other assorted trash talk, has Guillard seeing red and eagerly awaiting the result of this Saturday night's (Feb. 25, 2012) UFC 144 bout between Lauzon and Anthony Pettis. In the event the latter emerges victorious, Guillard has UFC matchmaker Joe Silva on speed dial and ready to annoy for a rematch, preferably by the Fourth of July weekend fight card in Las Vegas. That's what he tells MMAWeekly.com, anyway. He's not exactly in a good position to be asking for anything, considering he's lost two fights in a row, both by submission and both inside the first round. But a Lauzon loss would open up his dance card, so why not? Any Maniacs want to see Lauzon vs. Guillard part deux?
