Melvin Guillard’s UFC absence explained

Last week, Melvin Guillard was taken off the UFC 90 card for no apparent reason. This week we find out why:

UFC lightweight contender Melvin Guillard was arrested Aug. 13 in Houston for violating probation on a 2007 drug charge, a Harris County deputy told

The 25-year-old New Orleans native is in custody at the Harris County jail in Houston, the deputy said last Thursday, and will be released to a drug treatment facility as soon as space becomes available per the terms of his recently amended probation.

Details of the violation were not readily available.

I think everyone who’s followed Melvin’s career was waiting for this to happen. Since things were starting to look up for him again, it was inevitable that he would fuck it up as per usual.
