    Melvin Manhoef is without a doubt one of the most spectacular fighters on the planet. His furious 1st round ko's and attractive way of fighting really made him one of the most popular fighters in both mma and kickboxing of the last decade. UFC should really sign this guy despite his age. His last fight against Cyborg http://youtu.be/HWjqArbm28w showed he still got the skills and physics to compete at a top level.

    So here is your chance to ask Melvin a question and support him to get him into the UFC. Melvin Manhoef will be involving in the GLORY Last Man Standing Middleweight Championship tournament on June 21st live from Los Angeles. LiverKick has teamed up with http://www.fightstadium.com to bring this interview to you with incentives.

    Get your questions in for Melvin Manhoef by June 7th and be entered to win free GLORY merchandise, including hats and t-shirts. The best question will be chosen by Melvin Manhoef and the winner will walk away with free GLORY swag courtesy of GLORY Sports International, LiverKick.com and FightStadium.com. So feel free to leave your questions on Facebook, Twitter or in a comment on this article.

    The UFC owe it to fight fans to sign a man who still has a lot to give and comes to fight FOR the fight, not for points or a belt buckle.
    If the UFC is about putting on exciting fights, MM needs to get a contract, of any sort.

    I have no questions for Melvin, only support and a big shout out to all warriors that leave it all in the cage or ring.

    yes, it's long overdue. he'd be an exciting adding to UFN's, which tend to have prospects & hometown guys. I'd always watch his fights.

    Would love to see him mix it up with guys like Anderson Silva, Cung Le, and Vitor Belfort.

    Sure. Manhoef has always been fun to watch. He's a go out on your shield type of guy. Don't see him making a run at the title but

    Cung Le, Anderson, Vitor, Bisping, Diaz are all fun fights.

    Of course.

    I thought Manhoef retired and that's why he wasn't already signed. Bringing in a guy like this is a no brainer. Not everyone needs to be champ, I want exciting fights. Manhoef v. Cung Le would be outrageous.

    My only question for him would be what level of Super Saiyan is required to knock out Mark Hunt with one punch?

    I would really like Melvin to be in the UFC. Long overdue.

    1. My question would be...Melvin, you were systematically breaking down Robbie Lawler in the fight standing on the feet. Would you like a rematch? Assuming yes, How confident are you that you would win the rematch and what specifically would you do differently in the next fight?

    2. Do you think you have the best standup in the 170/185lb division?

    Also, I'm curious if his son is still training, hes got to be a teenager by now. That little kid was a monster in that video clip.

    If there bringing back Arlovski, I can't see why we shouldn't see Manoef in the UFC. Lets not forget he was dominating Lawler before he got caught, and he also ko'd Mark Hunt. Sign him up Zuffa.

    I dunno. Lost 2 of his last 3, one against Brock Larson. Not a title contender in the UFC, but fun to watch.

    Well, they don't. But when you have a fighter like MM who is beaten my mid tier talent like Brock Larson, but strong and explosive enough to take out Mark Hunt, it means you have a very inconsistent fighter who could knock off title challengers, but lose to guys in the middle. Not a great acquisition. Like I said though, he's fun to watch. He may get in.

    Solid post however, look at a guy like Robbie Lawler who was losing fights left and right to winning 3 fights in the UFC and instantly becoming the baddest fucker on the planet. I see your point but being this late in his career Joe Silva could just give him some interesting matchups for the fans and avoid pairing him against grapplers/wrestlers. For example rematches with Hunt and Lawler. Or how about MM vs Shogun, MM vs Anderson(a fight we have wanted to see for years). The possibilites are endless.
