    Could be possible if McGregor's wish is granted and he moves back up to 155.

    Never seems to work for him once he changes.

    Ross TKO R1.

    There we go! I thought I'd have a supporter or two. lol It would be a great litmus test for Conor's place in the division too. It has the potential be so 'explosive' that Michael Bay would have to referee it. :cool:

    Stuff like this always makes him seem like a headcase and like he's failing to reach his potential but he's entertaining as hell to watch so more power to him.

    That last KO was awesome

    Eh. Personally, I think Melvin gets the KO. Ross has good striking but he has trouble when his opponent is faster (Cub, Edson). Eventually Melvin catches him and pounces.

    Not a bad move. Saving money is always good and ATT is a really good gym.

    Not a horrible move but the one thing I liked about him being in Colorado was he was literally eating, sleeping and breathing MMA. He slept on a cot in the back of the gym and trained all day. When he wasn't training he was watching tape, etc. He has the maximum amount of focus possible. It seems Florida has far too many distractions for him to focus on his job.

    He didn't have a ton of trouble against Edson. That was a close fight, and either could have won.

    If he didn't win the fight, I'd assume he had a fair amount of trouble. Losses in the past and what I've seen from him just makes me feel he struggles against the faster guy standing.

    Yeah I'm not to familiar with him outside the cage but that makes sense and its something I thought of. As long as he keeps the same dedication it'll be a good move but discipline doesn't seem to be one of his strong points.

    I love watching Melvin fight, and love the run he had at Jacksons. I just dont see all these changes working for him, he needs to get somewhere(where he can learn sub defense) and stay there. Hopefully this works for him, he can keep his head straight, and get some more wins under his belt.

    Interesting, wonder if he wishes he never left Blackzilians.

    Well, he was 1-4 with the Blackzilians, so I doubt he ever cares for going back.

    He has to wish he was never influenced by Rashad to leave Jacksons, when Blackzillians was full of selfish fighters that only cared about themselves, which is the exact reason Rashad left Jacksons, and talked a bunch of guys into going there. That camp is a joke....

    He didn't stay at Grudge long at all. Only saw him training a few times and I'm ALWAYS there.
