When Gilbert Melendez defeated Josh Thomson to win the Strikeforce lightweight title, the announcement was made that same night that the idea for his next opponent was for top ranked Japanese fighter Shinya Aoki to come stateside and fight for the belt.

good to hear. thats the biggest drawback to having these different associations because the best fighters never get a chance to fight the best fighters from other organizations. just think if aoki could fight Penn or florian and really see how good he is.
