There’s no rest for the wicked, and as far as Melvin Manhoef is concerned there will be “No Mercy” if he has his way and cuts a deal with the greatest MMA organization in the world. Manhoef has recently expressed his desire to fight for the UFC, and he already has an opponent in mind. Wanderlei Silva, one of the most exciting strikers the sport has to offer, and a former Pride Middleweight Champion holding the most knockouts in Pride history.

I can see why. He has the power to put Wandy away very early. Melvin could be a great addition to the ufc if they utilize him properly. I hope he makes it there for at least a few fights.

Oh god. Thats like putting Big Nog in against a tank. Sure, in his prime he could weather the storm and eventually score the finish. But as of the moment theres no way he can pull this off.

Watch him get signed and get thrown a wrestler like Gian Villante, I'd love to see him fight Wandy though. Melvin vs any striker is like a battle of rock em sock em robots.

Melvin has too much SKILL for wand...for the 2 minutes that it would last, it would be a spectacle.

actually he fights at MW, he just fought Denis Kang a MW..and he has fought at LHW before..and beefed up to fight Mark Hunt in K1..so there is still a possibility of em fighting later down the road..

Manhoef vs Cung Le

Rampage vs Manhof would have been epic. Theres a shit ton of matchups before he loses to a grappler. More than likely he'd lose to a striker more than once.

manhoef vs lombard would be fun. or if manhoef is really at 170 manhoef vs diego sanchez or erick silva. put him against a guy who is gonna come after him the same way he comes at them. if the ufc acquired cyborg in the strikeforce takeover they could put together an epic rematch

He was rumoured to be signing with the UFC at WW, that's why he said it.

I wouldn't want to see him at 170 though. Too many wrestlers and too hard a cut I'm thinking.
