Melvin Guillard re: Rich Clementi’s nuts on his neck

Pramit Mohapatra got in touch with Melvin Guillard a few days ago, which was a good idea because Melvin is always an entertaining guy with about 500 things to say. Quotes from this interview are already floating all over other MMA sites, but they’re all missing the best quote of all. Any time a fighter talks about “nuts on neck” action, you better believe we’ll post about it here at Fightlinker:

No, I can never understand that and nobody is ever going to make me understand that. He disrespected me after the fight. He put his nuts on the back of my head. When I catch him, I’m going to kick him in his [expletive deleted] nuts.

I can’t look at that and respect that. Because of the beef we have? Naw, I can’t. That’s honestly like me seeing him next time … and I spit in his face. My dad always told me if a man spit on you or slapped you, [expletive deleted] kill him. And if he put his nuts on my head on national TV, I’m going to [expletive deleted] kill him, period.

So, there’s no way I’m ever going to overlook that and be like, “Naw, it’s cool because we were having problems.” Hell no. I ain’t ever gonna let another man do that to me and get away with it.

Melvin seems to be one of those bullies from High School who thinks it’s okay to do whatever the fuck they want to you, but the second you do anything to them they just explode. As far as I’m concerned, as soon as you sucker punch someone you open the floodgates to all sorts of surprise retaliation, such as the aforementioned nuts-on-neck-gate.

When you think about that, it’s a pretty primal thing to do … I’m sure Desmond Morris would have a few things to say about the symbolism of such an act in relation to the animal world.

    Hopefully Melvin will just take time off and learn jui-jitsu, improve his ground game, come back to the UFC in 2 years and start knocking out 155’ers and/or subbing them.
    Death threats? He’s just not going to grow up any time soon.

    He had the opportunity to KO Clementi but just could not get the job done. Story finished. But he’s still talking after the fact.

  • Accomando

    That was a great trail to the story about Edmonton, murders, shootings and Kendall Grove.

    As for the murder rate differences, well, we must just be better shots.

  • fightlinker

    Yeah, isn’t it fun when one story leads to another to another to another? I try to link back to myself as much as possible to ‘chain’ articles together.

  • suspiria

    you know smellvin loved it and secretly wanted to turn around when the nuts were on his neck.”kill him” yeah good advice do that dumb ass see where you end up.

  • Mobb Deep

    So this means that Rich is a cockface while Melvin is a cockfaced-crackhead. Also, Melvin’s threats are hilarous. Whats he gonna do? Attack Rich the next time he sees him and get totatally owned again. Idiot.

  • Ryder

    How can you say he owned Deep? Didn’t you read the interview? He didn’t even lose that fight. Don’t believe what you watch live……only believe what Melvin tells you. That way he doesn’t have to kick you in the nuts!

  • Lifer

    when i’m in my gear my nuts are protected by my cup. maybe he put the cup on his neck? maybe, just maybe, he actually reached down his pants, pulled out his cup, neck-nutted him and went to go talk to Joe?

  • fightlinker

    nothing worse than rolling with some dude who doesn’t wear a cup

  • bmiller

    I can tell you lots of stories about Melvin. I went to college with him and I could go on and on about how much of a dumbass he is.

  • Josh Man

    Because said guy is going to get balls crushed and then cry about it, while I’m thinking,”Fuck off.”

  • Method

    Pretty primal? So is our sport homeboy. That’s why I fucking love it

  • fightlinker

    more like feeling some dude’s nuts on your thigh n shit is more gay than BJJ, which is already uber-gay

  • Method

    Wait, since when is man on man missionary position gay?

  • M.O.B

    Funny, my father told me the same thing. Clementi won the fight, but he broke a man law in the process. No male genitalia shall touch the flesh of another man, no exceptions.

  • islandguy

    What is that nuts-on-neck thing? I never heard that. Is it any part that you are not supposed to touch with your nuts? Or is the neck particularly bad? How do you touch someone’s neck with your nuts but not your dick? Or was there a dick touch but that doesn’t matter as much? Didn’t Melvin every do that kind of race thing in gym class where you carry the other guy on your shoulders? He probably won the race and then had to kill his partner. Where did he get a name like Melvin anyhow? He’d probably neck-nut me if he heard me saying that.

  • kenny the swede

    +50 points for “nuts-on-neck-gate”. LOL- hilarious.
