Alvarez is a great striker. He has better offense and defense than Melendez. More power too. Melendez does have a better chin and is the better wrestler for sure. They're both good grapplers on the mat but with Melendez being so good at wrestling and scrambles and with his ground and pound I see him having the edge if they were to grapple in an MMA fight. Melendez is probably a little better in the clinch too.
"seriously if i mount them and have each wrist pinned to the ground wtf are they going to do to me? ive been watching ufc for years i know a few basic things to look out for."
