    Yeah but no one in MMA retires when they should so you should just enjoy this since it's actually evenly matched

    I guess so. Could settle on Guillard vs. Kawajiri though.

    Really? It seems like ONE is where careers go to die.

    Why are they even allowing Melvin to fight ? The guy needs to hang em up, he doesn’t have it anymore, he’s gonna end up with major brain trauma for the rest of his life.

    I thought somebody posted a video of Melvin fighting at 205 awhile back.

    A few of these guys Melvin fought recently were way bigger, like Njokuani and Adesanya. He needs to get his weight under control and stop fighting at middleweight.

    Guillard's clearly in the foreground there. He's only listed as 1 inch taller, and looking at the fight that seems about right (maybe 2).

    Overall I still think Guillard clearly more fitted for Lightweight/Welterweight.

    Only in Japan would people applaud this match-up in 2018.

    That's my fault, I made a screenshot at this moment. This is from video on facebook, I can't share it.
    Try to search the name of the event.
    You'll clearly see that Guillard is way bigger.
