who do you have in this one?
I think Gilbert would absolutely rag-doll him however I don't see him finishing
Gilbert by a VERY unanimous decision

Gilbert has the better hands, but Kenny has more versatile striking. I think their JJ skills are fairly equal. Gilly's wrestling is superior, so he should be able to dictate where the fight goes...UD for Melendez.

I actually have Florian by ignored illegal pointy elbows to the top of the head from guard. But I do admitt I've only seen one Melendez fight. I think Melendez would control him but without an answer to his elbows or his jiu jitzu.

Melendez by decision. He is strong and a good wrestler. Florian is getting better and better, but El Nino is on another level right now. Who knows though, Florian lands one of those elbow he could get a doctors stoppage.

Florian would be Gilbert I think. His jits would nullify any wrestling that Gil has. I also think Florian has just as good of a stand up game too.

I would go with Kenny, look how he handled himself after going up a couple wieght divisions to be on TUF. Kenny is strong and has good ground game. I wouldn't count Gilbert out at all though, just would have to say Kenny takes it.
