    Former Strikeforce LW champion vs. Former Bellator LW Champion

    Gilbert Melendez
    Former WEC LW champion
    Two-time Strikeforce LW champion
    Defended Strikeforce belt successfully five times
    Avenged his first 2 losses
    32 years old

    Eddie Alvarez
    Longest reigning Bellator LW champion
    Two-time Bellator LW champion
    Avenged 2 of his losses

    Melendez lost last month to the reigning UFC champ. Alvarez is hoping for a May return. Let's have this match-up!

    I agree but Benson vs Eddie was a fantasy matchup too. Sad we won't see it now but I hope they rebook that someday too. Cerrone is a great replacement though; stoked for that too.

    this fight was supposed to happen years ago before Zuffa bought out Strikeforce. Came so damn close as well

    It would be a great fight for sure. I'd take Alvarez.

    It is a good fight, and makes a lot of sense to make now. Both guys coming off losses. If made, an absolute must win for both fighters.

    would like to see this fight even though it would have been better 3-4 years ago when it was nearly made

    I have always wanted to see Melendez vs Alverez
    That fight has the potential to be one of the best brawls ever

    This is honestly my #1 dream fight that could actually be made.

    It'd have to be 5 rounds, it'd be a great Fight Night card.

    This would have been better to have been made when Melendez was the Strikeforce champ and Alvarez the Bellator champ. It would still make a good fight imo though.

    Any version of Eddie, Frankie, and Gilbert fighting is a long time dream come true match up.
