Melvin Guillard's Record

So I was watching the fights last night and I happened to see that the UFC had Melvin's pro record as something around 44-8-2 and Joe Rogan even commented that he had over 50 fights. But now I'm reading an article on MMA Fighting that said that his record is 27-8-2. Also, both Sherdog and Wikipedia also have him as 27-8-2, so it's not just an error. So why the discrepancy? Any ideas?

Maybe they've added in his amateur record too?

EDIT: Can't be that. It's listed as his professional record being 45-9-3 by the UFC. Everywhere else has it at 27. Strange.

UFC does this from time to time. Alot of TUF guys have fake records. Don't know why they do it and it really annoys me.

People that update Wikis simply get their records from Sherdog, so it's really only a discrepancy between UFC and Sherdog.

Melvin could have easily had 20 more fights on tiny shows at the beginning of his career (2001), and UFC is going on the record he showed them. Sherdog isn't the bible, there are tonnes of small shows they don't know about, especially ten years ago.

Second, did anybody notice that when they introduced Amir, they gave his record as 1-0? During the show, they put his record at 0-0. Currently, Sherdog has his record listed at 1-0, with the sole win coming against CB a couple hours ago in the Ultimate Finale.

Was this simply a typo on the producers part or were they just that confindent that Amir was going to win? Now if I were a consipracy theorist, I might argue that it was a fix...............(but I'm not and yes, I do need to get a life).

I think the UFC is pretty good with their stats, but every now and then, they just do something...........weird.

Yeah i guess but wasn't there a similar thing going on with Miguel Torres? The WEC/UFC and everywhere else has him as 38-3 but his peeps claim he's 50-3.
