I'd be all for Bellator and Strikeforce getting into bed together. Champions vs champions PPV all day baby. As for this particular match-up I'd favor Alvarez via sprawl n brawl.

Please make this fight happen. An mma dream match. I've got Alvarez winning a very exciting decision.

A very winnable fight for Alvarez. Melendez's scrambles would play right into Alvarez's great clinchwork.

I said in a different thread that Bellator's prospect-building alongside Strikeforce's stars would be a very exciting promotion that would easily compete with the UFC. This would be a good first step.

I will, literally, blow my load if they make this happen. This is awesome and I am glad that SOME PEOPLE see the value of co-promotions.
