Man if they got to fight(Gil and Eddie) that will be the best fight at 155 this year FOR SURE ! not really exited about UFC 155ers. (after BJ LOST) MAke it happen Scot!
I think Eddie would win, I can see him dominating Melendez on there feet and if he fight goes to the ground...Eddie can bring the fight back to there feet, hopefully it happens would love to see it
Definitely a win for Eddie.
gotta go with alvarez..
Right now I have Alvarez ranked higher than Melendez but I would not be at all surprised if Gilbert won.
I say sign them both to the UFC and shake up the LW division a bit.....
Edgar's a great fighter and has great game plans, but let's face it, he's not the most exciting dude in the cage, and neither is Maynard,
eddie, melendez, jz, thomson all are more exciting than allmost every lightweight in ufc
They are pretty exciting now that you mention it.
These guys are exciting, but in my opinion, Ben Henderson will be viewed as the best lightweight all around, soon. That guy has a lot of heart and determination. He just needs more big names to prove so.
Top 5 lightweights, in no particular order:
Each a champion to an organization and defeated some of the best.
take edgar and henderson off that list, they havn't fought anybody.
Cerrone, varner and roller, whom Henderson has defeated are threats to anybody.
top 5 imo
I still can't stand Gil yet. Not sure why but he has never impressed me.
