Michael Johnson “Pissed Off” After Melvin Guillard Failed To Engage

Michael Johnson stepped in and replaced Ross Pearson for a bout with Melvin Guillard at UFC Fight Night 37 expecting to have a war to remember.

Instead, Johnson was left frustrated and disappointed – despite picking up the unanimous decision victory. And he wasn’t the only one.

UFC president Dana White stated his feelings on the three-round co-main event, saying “I was excited for that fight….and it just didn’t happen. There’s no doubt Melvin ran the entire fight and was incredibly passive – the complete opposite of how he used to fight.”

Johnson had similar thoughts during the post-fight interview.

“He was talking a lot of shit before the fight and I expected him to do something,” he said. “Instead, he didn’t. I did think he was a little scared of me. It was obvious he didn’t want a piece of me.”

Johnson (15-8) has now won three straight since a pair of back-to-back losses, including victories over Guillard, Gleison Tibau and Joe Lauzon.
