On Sunday, UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard (pictured) announced he was leaving the Blackzilians to return to Greg Jackson’s star-studded squad. Well, it appears Guillard tweeted too soon as it seems he’s persona non grata at the famed Albuquerque gym. According to MMAJunkie, Guillard inquired about a potential reunion through former teammates, who then relayed the information to the team’s administration. Unfortunately for “The Young Assassin,” the powers that be denied his request. Although Guillard claimed he left Jackson’s on good terms in October 2011, the camp’s shot callers were reportedly upset over some things he said in interviews about his move. In addition, Guillard allegedly has two outstanding 2010 assault charges hanging over him from separate incidents in Albuquerque. Authentic Sports Management, who is Guillard’s most recent representatives, have been mum on the situation.   Despite following Jackson’s lead towards the top of the UFC’s steep lightweight totem pole, which included five straight wins and a near title shot, Guillard chose to take his talents to the Blackzilians after losing to Joe Lauzon at UFC 136. Guillard went just 1-3 under the Blackzilians’ watch. The 29-year-old has lost two straight scraps and may be fighting for his UFC life in his next outing. Guillard owns an extensive 30-12-2 (1 NC) professional record. He has lost eight of his 19 bouts inside the Octagon.
