I was born 400 years ago in the Highlands of Scotland. I am immortal, and I am not alone. Now is the time of the gathering, when the stroke of a sword will release the power of the quickening. In the end there can be only one.
That’s not an admission of immortality. It’s just the opening statement at the beginning of that Highland TV series that aired in 1992. We just wanted to be the first MMA site to start an article with it. Look at that, we just made history. We’re all about MMA firsts on MiddleEasy. It’s how the sport has been thriving for over a decade. Here’s another MMA first: Melvin Guillard becomes the first fighter to publicly leave a camp only to be publicly denied from entering the camp that he originally was a member of. That’s the equivalent of quitting your job because you got another job lined up, then getting fired from your new job before your first day. Damn.
It all began pretty innocent when Melvin Guillard shot off this tweet on March 24th stating he’s leaving his camp at the Blackzilians to join his former gym, Team Jackson.
The great Blackzilian diaspora. Now according to an unnamed source from Team Jackson in a brief MMA Junkie interview, Melvin is simply not welcomed inside Team Jackson/Winkeljohn. According to the article, Guillard also has two assault charges against him from two separate incidents in Albuquerque (or the ABQ for those that watch Breaking Bad). Melvin Guillard’s management firm wouldn’t even comment as to whether he’s still a client. Bummer.
