I think putting him in there with Spencer Fisher or Roger Huerta is a GREAT idea. Fireworks for sure. I hate Melvin's attitude though. I'm so glad Joe Stevenson embarrassed him the way he did. Hopefully Melvin will be a little more respectful and professional in the future.

Pride LWGP.



I agree. Putting him against Huerta, Edagr, Florian, or Fisher would not be a bad idea. However Melvin claims to be the toughest striker at 155, and their are a lot of possible guys in the GP ( if it stays at 155 and they all enter) who would stand with him. Gomi, Sakarai, Ishida, Kawajiri,Hansen, Melendez and Azerado would have no fear of standing with him. Personally I think Sakarai would kick him into oblivion.All these fight's would probably be exciting, and he would have a chance to back up his words.

WEC.



OMFG. The guy losses a fight to a top level opponent and people are all like "Send him to WEC". What the hell is wrong with you. Give to guy a chance to rebound off his god damn loss. He is still young and could beat a good deal of UFC fighters. Personally i would love to see him vs Spencer Fisher.



lol don't cry mate. But seriously, Melvin has great potential and is still pretty young, he has great KO power and is a force at 155 i'm sure. I agree with this but i'm not one of the people, seemingly like yourself who has watched the Juggo highlight of some impressive KO's over nobodies and reckons that he's the next best thing in the division. I can't believe how many people rate him so highly based on the competition he has fought.

He already has two losses in the UFC with Gabe being the only guy beaten worth mentioning since he's finished TUF. After another sub loss it looks like Melvin has to work on his ground game and complete his skill set. This would be best done now in the WEC, which I regard as a promising upcoming event. Melvin could easily find a run of wins over at WEC and mature as a fighter, work harder on not getting submitted, etc and come back to the UFC and make a genuine challenge for the belt.

I think if Melvin was smart he would move to the WEC and at most take 1-2 fights over the next year. Lay low, and train BJJ full time. You can't be great in this sport if you can't stop submissions. He has 6 losses, and 5 by submission. Right now not only does he look like Randleman, but his career is going the same way. If Kevin would have left Hammer House, and got BJJ training he could have been one of the best in the world. I hope Melvin doesn't make the same mistake.

Id like to see him against Huerta. I dont think Huerta would stand a chance against a really good striker, and i dont think melvin can really match up to the top fighters in the divison, so it would give me peice of mind as to wether Huerta could beat a good striker, or wether melvin can hang with sombody who people are already slating as the next champ.

He needs time to get himself together first. Second thing is to leave Team Punishment and learn some BJJ. He needs to join a camp that is like a family. Militich Camp is a good idea. His attitude fits their system too.
