    I would pay to see this fight. Aldo doesn't leg kick as much, gilbert will come in ready for kicks, pressure boxing. This would be a very good fight. 2 Former champs. Melendez has some of the best hands in the division, underated.

    Melendez isn't on Aldos level

    Rather see Aldo vs Pettis or Cruz

    Melendez lost his last four so why not fight for the belt? He's basically a Diaz.

    Melendez has lost 4 fights a row. How does he deserve to fight Aldo? Aldo just knocked out Stephens and Melendez just lost to Stephens 30-26.

    Giblert sucks and makes $100,000 a fight. Don't tell me about underpaid fighters. This guy should refund the UFC.

    And he lost to the current champ?
    Melendez had to move down to just lose to a guy Aldo beat in the 1st Rd it's not good match making at all just accept it.

    N I think Melendez is one of the best lightweight mma has ever seen in his strikeforce prime, doods never been tkod or kod

    Gilbert is 1-5 in UFC with his lone win coming in 2013 against Diego Sanchez. Yes, Diego Sanchez.

    TS is dillusional or may have snorted some cocaine today

    Stephens destroyed El Nino with leg kicks... I think he's got the blue print.

    Melendez beat ben henderson for the title but got robbed, also got robbed against alverez. Aldo got ktfo 3 times in his last 5. Melendez would knock aldo out most likely, He has no chin, gilbert on the other hand... Iron jaw, never been ko'd.

    It's not a stretch at all to think Aldo can use leg kicks. He used them against Stephens effectively. He'd out box Gilbert anyway.

    Sure Pettis is back at LW now.

    Shame they never fought when they were due to. If Ortega and Holloway fight for the belt and Ortega wins, I think they could very well make that. Probably depends on when Aldo wants to fight again and if Holloway is okay and fights Ortega. If the worst were to happen and Holloway had to sit out for a long time or retire, then I could see Aldo and Ortega.
