Gil Melendez is not in the tourny anymore he wants to focus on one project at a time according to his interview on tagg radio. He wants to defend his strikeforce title but Masvidal dropped out.
Him wanting to finish this project gives the impression he wants to goto the ufc

Nice, Alvarez is an exciting up and coming fighter, this will finally give him well deserved exposure, but I don't know if he is ready at this point to beat Dida.

im glad pro-elite and dream are working together -- that could only result in good things happening!
this is a good test for both fighters, an under appreciated alvarez against an unknown (to most) andre dida. if they both put on a good showing, they shouldn't hang their heads

That it is, we thought we would get a LW tourney like this just before PRIDE was sold, its been a long wait but i think it will end up being worth a while, so many great fights but i still think JZ will blitz Aoki, striking beats BJJ sometimes is all

this card makes me want to cry, and to think i might get it free on HDNET
