Additionally, the show features experts from the MMA media, top managers, trainers and company executives from the world of mixed martial arts.

On this week’s edition of Pro MMA Radio, Kenny Florian joined Larry Pepe to chat about the UFC’s lightweight division. Florian especially had strong words for Melvin Guillard regarding his bold proclamation at “Fight for the Troops 2” that he was the best lightweight in the division. Florian thinks he and Guillard need to get in the cage if Guillard thinks he deserves a title shot over him. Transcribed via Fighter’s Only:

“It doesn’t make sense. There’s a lot of guys working hard. It’s who the best fighter is. If Melvin thinks he deserves a shot over me, he should fight me and beat me. It’s always about who the best fighter is. Who has he beaten? What has he done?” he said on Pro MMA Radio.

“That’s great he’s finally considered a top contender. Losing to Joe Stevenson in the first round isn’t gonna get you that shot. You have to be consistent. He has to separate himself from the pack. I would take that fight.”
