Report: Jackson's camp won't let Melvin Guillard come back to train

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Well, hopefully "The Young Assassin" didn't already buy his plane ticket.

Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Melvin Guillard recently announced he was leaving the Blackzilians camp (see his tweet here) and returning to Jackson's MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Unfortunately, he never bothered to check and see if they were willing to have him back.

A report from Sherdog.com says "The Young Assassin" will not be permitted to train alongside his former teammates, which comes as a surprise considering the comments he made upon last-year's departure:

"It came to one of those points in my life where I had to make a grown-up decision. Kind of an executive decision, and this is the decision I made. I didn't leave Jackson's in a bad way. I love those coaches to death, love that team, and if anything every occurs and I have to go back to Jackson's, I hope I'm still welcome, because I didn't leave in the wrong way."

See his full comments here.

Guillard has been dreadful as of late, going just 1-4 in his last five fights and dropping back-to-back bouts to Donald Cerrone at UFC 150 and Jamie Varner at UFC 155. The former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 2 contestant has a long way to go to rebuild his brand.

First, he's got to find a place to start. Any suggestions?
