Coming off back-to-back finishes, you wouldn't blame Melvin Guillard for wanting to challenge himself; after all, he is on a five-fight winning streak.

Guiilard spoke with Heavy.com about his recent win over Shane Roller at UFC 132, where he knocked out his opponent in the first round. It was an outcome that he predicted would happen.

"As a fighter and being confident, you have to speak things into existence. I had no doubts in my mind that I could beat him," Guillard said.

Guillard has been vocal about wanting to compete for the UFC lightweight title, but with matchups already set, he will just have to wait and see which fighters emerge. And in case a replacement is needed, Guillard said he will be prepared if he is called upon.

"That's why I'm staying in camp, making sure that I keep on going, but don't over-train. I don't want to be burnt out; I want to just train consistently, but not too much," he said.
