Melvin Guillard is no longer under contract with World Series of Fighting.
First Round Management CEO Malki Kawa announced via Twitter on Thursday that “The Young Assassin” was granted his release, and Sherdog.com subsequently confirmed the news with a WSOF official.
Guillard was slated to face Ozzy Dugulubgov at WSOF 20 but was pulled from the card the week of the event for failing to submit medicals. He competed twice for the Las Vegas-based promotion in 2014, scoring a second-round TKO of Gesias Cavalcante before dropping a split decision to reigning 155-pound champion Justin Gaethje last November. Guillard missed weight for both bouts.
Prior to his WSOF stint, Guillard compiled a 12-9 mark with the UFC. The Louisianan earned notable triumphs over Dennis Siver, Gleison Tibau, Jeremy Stephens and Evan Dunham during his Octagon tenure.
