There’s no rest for the wicked, and as far as Melvin Manhoef is concerned there will be “No Mercy” if he has his way and cuts a deal with the greatest MMA organization in the world. Manhoef has recently expressed his desire to fight for the UFC, and he already has an opponent in mind. Wanderlei Silva, one of the most exciting strikers the sport has to offer, and a former Pride Middleweight Champion holding the most knockouts in Pride history.

I can see why. He has the power to put Wandy away very early. Melvin could be a great addition to the ufc if they utilize him properly. I hope he makes it there for at least a few fights.

I agree Budge Manhoef is always a lot of fun to watch

I hope the UFC gives him a shot

Oh god. Thats like putting Big Nog in against a tank. Sure, in his prime he could weather the storm and eventually score the finish. But as of the moment theres no way he can pull this off.

Watch him get signed and get thrown a wrestler like Gian Villante, I'd love to see him fight Wandy though. Melvin vs any striker is like a battle of rock em sock em robots.

Melvin has too much SKILL for wand...for the 2 minutes that it would last, it would be a spectacle.
