cool. now who should he fight? maynard anyone?
Some interesting matchups
Him vs pettis or gray would be a good first fight or maybe straight to bendo
I'm so loving all of these strikeforce guys coming over.
Unfortunately I think we'll see he isn't as good as the hype hopes he is.
BJ Penn vs Gilbert Melendez. Make it happen.
Despite his last performance, I'd be just fine if he was to face Bendo in his debut
Gotta love Gil. What a hilarious dude.
To support my post above, and after watching his fights, lets take a look:
Can he beat:
Chandler, Alvarez, Miller, Edgar (at that weight)- maybe
He's hardly Top 5 and he'd have to beat a top 10 to verify the hype and I'm not sure he can do that.
Gray can start training full bore in approx 3 weeks.
The stars might very well align for an April Card vs Gil. I do know that he's expressed interest in that fight. Whether his Handlers are actively pursuing that I'm not aware.
I'd say top ( edit 5 or 6 fight to get his feet wet . Shake the octagon jitters .
No Need to rush these SF fighters . Create better match ups and build up the hype that way IMO
Let him rape Melvin's soul as an introduction to the UFC fanbase...
Wow. That's an overwhelming amount of evidence. I believe you now.
Nice thing about this discussion verses say these superfight discussions is we'll actually be able to know really soon. There is no way he'll beat Cerrone. If that's where the people are at in their thinking, that's the fight I'd like to see.
