Diego Sanchez: 'Lying' Melvin Guillard 'looks stupid' and got dropped by 'everybody in the gym'

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Diego Sanchez has responded to the claims Melvin Guillard made about dropping him in practice, saying that in reality it was him -- and the rest of the crew at Jackson-Winkeljohn's MMA -- that would drop "The Young Assassin."

They say what happens in the gym during training should stay in the gym.

But apparently, Melvin Guillard doesn't live by that code, as he recently let the cat out of bag by saying that he used to drop Diego Sanchez during their sparring sessions at Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Now, "The Dream" has responded to "The Young Assassin's" claims saying that in reality it was him -- and everybody else at Jackson's MMA -- doing the dropping on Guillard.

From his conversation on "The MMA Hour:"

"Oh my God, this guy, too. These guys want to run their mouths. And, you know what it is? They just want attention. They see a guy like me fighting my ass off in the cage getting all the fans attention, because even in a loss, people talk more about me than Gilbert Melendez because it was my heart that made that fight exciting. If it wasn't for my heart and me coming forward and going for it, that fight wouldn't have been what it was. These guys see that and they see the attention that I'm getting and they try to talk their way into the spotlight. I was cool with Melvin Guillard before he said that. Here is the thing with Melvin, okay. The guy is an awesome athlete, he is really good, explosive and really fast; but the dude has got a questionable chin. I'm telling you, I've seen everybody in the gym drop him. I've dropped him two times with a straight left. And that's true, I am not lying. The guy has a questionable chin. Joe Stevenson dropped him with a jab. Joe Lauzon dropped him with a jab. He doesn't have an iron chin like me. For him to say he dropped me all the time is a bunch of bullshit. You can ask Mike Winkeljohn, you can ask Greg Jackson, you can ask anybody in the gym that was actually there. The coaches are going to say they can't remember they saw the last time Diego get dropped, but, Adlan Amagov dropped me with a kick, a liver kick, that was the hardest I've ever been kicked. But, yeah, I don't get dropped very much. If it is, it's with a body kick or something like that. But, it's part of the sport. For him to say he drops me all the time, that is the biggest, untrue biggest shit I've ever heard in my life. I feel sorry for Melvin that he has to drop that low to bring himself up, or try to bring himself up because it really makes him look stupid. Because he's lying. I think the guy is just lost because he can't find a camp. He's here, he's there, he's moving from Albuquerque to Houston to Dallas to Denver to Top Team. He has a lot of talent but I don't know what will make him talk crap about me."

As we go back to the Mania vault, there is video evidence of Guillard getting dropped by a much bigger Carlos Condit during a training session.

Nevertheless, it seems bygones are indeed bygones as Melvin took to Twitter immediately after to apologize somewhat to Sanchez for the remarks.

An apology Sanchez accepted.

While the beef has apparently died down, any of you Maniacs care to see an eventual 155-pound scrap between the former training partners?
