This is the fight that makes most sense at this point in my opinion. UFC doesn't have a clear number 1 contender so Gil should get the immediate shot.

Easy fight for Ben if he watches tapes and trains his fucking ass off!! Melendez doesn't deserve the shot but oh well he earned it. I see Melendez losing to henderson then to maynard the to diaz then to guida and amybe danzig and being given a pink slip and sent back to the minor leagues. hopefully he proves me wrong. I think maynard or bj deserve this shot not melendez. but oh well its going to happen ben needs an easy win after his all his decisoin wins...so bring it on!!!

What has BJ done at LW lately to warrant himself a crack at the belt I'm a bit confused

And Guida has dropped to feather weight and if I'm not mistaken Gil has already beat Guida

Meh. Not too thrilled about this matchup. I think they should have waited until Pettis/Cerrone played out. If Pettis won decisively then he should get the shot. Alot easier sell and i know Bendo wants that fight more. I think Melendezbis gonna get smashed.

and I doubt Nate and Gil would fight, and Gil would wreck Danzig

Melendez vs Bendo is going to be a dog fight.

Melendez has been a top 5 LW for the last 2+ years and has recieved almost zero recognition from the casual population. I'm not sure who exactly deserves the next title shot, but Gil is near the top of the list.

Plus its free?? No complaints from me.

Melendez at +300 or higher is going to be a steal.

I'm thinking since Gil drop out of his last Stikeforce fight (Due to injury :rolling eyes: ), he should put up the Stikeforce Lightweight belt on the line against Ben. That way Ben could kept a belt from another promotion since he lost his against Anthony Pettis

I think he'd lose to Maynard and Henderson. He trains with Diaz, so they wouldn't fight.
