Gilbert Melendez (20-2 MMA, 10-1 SF) and Josh Thomson (19-4 MMA, 10-2 SF) will soon settle a score.

Multiple sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that verbal agreements are in place for a rubber match between the current and former Strikeforce lightweight champ at "Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Cormier," which takes place May 19 at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., and airs live on Showtime. (Preliminary-card fights air on Showtime Extreme.)

Additionally, a non-title light-heavyweight matchup between former champ Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante (11-3 MMA, 4-2 SF) and Mike Kyle (19-8-1 MMA, 3-3-1 SF) is expected to take place.

I guess it makes sense to have Melendez fight Thomson. After Thomson they need to seriously move Melendez over, or bring UFC LW's over for him.

Gee...can we hope for a Melendez vs. Thomson IV next year?? I wish the UFC would finally just "absorb" Strikeforce already. It is inevitable...just get it over with.

I would much rather see him in the UFC. Not sure what it is but the UFC Octagon does weird stuff to people and i wanna see how he fights in his first fight
