I can't wait for Melvin to get a title shot.
Oh yeah and I'm a landscape artist. Watch out for my drive-by.
For one, I think its funny how they put Melvin out there on the whole outfit thing. He tried to look all sharp from the waist up for the interviews and they showed his mismatching fight shorts and sneakers lol...
For two, Karyn Bryant's husband is the camera man. He's cool and not really bothered by it, but whats the sudden habit with fighters hitting on her in front of her spouse?
Maybe they are swingers lol All kidding aside, I don't know how her hubby does it because I'd probably lose my mind already if she was my wife lol...
I can't remember an interview of hers in which there wasn't some flirtation. It's just her style.
I want to see how he handles a wrestler though - I have a bad feeling that he will be controlled a bit easier than he thinks. Jim Miller may not be 'just' a wrestler, but if he fights Melvin he would be wise to take it to the ground. There is also Clay Guida or Bendo as possible matchups depending on who comes out on top in the near future.
The Nate Diaz fight sticks out in my mind though, where Melvin was doing ok but was overconfident in his Jits and wrestling and was finished by guillotine.
Jim Miller would be good for him that would definately show if he is champion quality also with Jackson you know they are working on his takedown defence. Hope he gets a top 5 next.
"I want to see how he handles a wrestler though ", uh you just did. shane rollers a great wrestler, just never got the chance. melvin will destroy miller if/ when they fight.
Sure Shane Roller is a wrestler, but his gameplan looked pretty bad it seemed he didn't think he needed to take the fight to the ground. I'm sure a big part of that was because of Melvin's style, but I wouldn't say Shane Roller is a top tier wrestler.
Waylon Lowe & Shane Roller were both good wrestlers & he handle them very well, although Roller never tried a single takedown... Guillard's TDD looked good in the Lowe fight though. ;D
I agree winner of Hendo v Miller or Guida next.
melvin is an excellent fighter but outside the cage he is a douchebag..he was talking shit to siver at the press conference because someone mentioned them possibly fighting again..this guy needs a reality check..
Dude can't stop moving during an interview, always on the go.
