    Move? Isn’t he rated one of the top 5 PFP fighters in MMA?

    Personally I think he might be 5th best lightweight in the UFC.

    Not much better at 145 either, certainly Edgar and Aldo would make him cry.

    • Mark McDowall

      How he’s rated as a top 5 PFP is beyond me. I think Melendez is a vastly over rated fighter, @ 45 or 55 I think he will have alot of problems being anything more than a mid card PPV fighter at best.

      I think he is top 10 at LW but I think a step up in competition will expose him. I also think everyone at 145 is going to be to quick for Gilbert
