Melvin Guillard for nearly ten years and over twenty fights, but has now moved on after 2-5 in his last seven fights. A lot of promotion are looking to acquire his talent, and the Ultimate Fighter Alum will have no problem finding a new place to ply his trade. As one of the most exciting lightweights in the sport, Guillard needs to have the right equipment to knock people out cold. While some people would be satisfied with any pair of shorts, gloves, or headgear, Guillard knows which gear is the best for him in the cage as a professional athlete. When he has a choice, he chooses to wear Built To Fight(BTF) gear and custom MMA shorts. Now that he is out of the UFC, he can choose to wear whatever gear he wants which you could see on Sherdog.com when he was training in BTF gear.
Guillard has had trouble looking to find a place to call home when he trains having spent time at the Blackzillians, he tried to get back into Greg Jackson’s, Grudge training Center, and American Top Team. Some of this could be attributed to his losing streak, but there is no doubt that he will get back on track when he finds a place to call home for training and to fight. The World Series of Fighting seems to be especially interested in getting the contract of Guillard and have even said he could be fighting for the title with two wins in the promotion. For them, their Lightweight belt is being contested between Justin Gaethje and Nick Newell at the next World Series of Fight card.
BTF has been in the MMA gear business for nearly twenty years, and fighters from the top of the heap to those just beginning have at one time trained in their gear. It is a right of passage as well as some of the best gear in the fight game. Of course, they also create rash guards, Gis, shorts, and every other form of gear you will need to train or compete. They were recently on hand for Metamoris 3 to help promote the Jiu Jitsu world as much as they help promote the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Built To Fight believes that building the sport and the fighters is important as making money on your brand.
That is why they are out there helping the fledgling promotions like Metamoris and not looking to make a quick buck like other companies. In the same way that their gear is built and priced for anyone to afford and use.
