It's been a long, hard road for Gilbert Melendez, but after defeating Shinya Aoki last Saturday night he's back where he's wanted to be for so long.

Sitting among the elite lightweights in the world, currently ranked No. 3 according to the MMAWeekly.com World Rankings, he's now ready to take some time off.

Bellator vs Strikeforce: "A Night of Champions" I'd pay to see a PPV which had Alvarez vs Melendez, Lombard vs Shields, Good vs Diaz. They could throw on Carrie Vera vs Sarah Kaufmann. Put Robbie Lawler in the opening bout against someone who wants to bang and you've got a pretty fun card.

A pretty fun card? I think that card looks like one of the best I've ever seen. Though you might run into time issues....unless you did 3 round fights since I doubt either promotion would want their titles leaving with the other.

I think this has all the potential in the world of being a great fight rather than a domination.
