    I don't think Melendez will beat Pettis either. Hoping he can put up a good fight though.

    I think Pettis will win a close decision. I can't see Pettis just steamrolling Gil

    If Pettis makes it look easy? I will be blown away. Beyond impressed.

    Having said that, I very very much doubt that will happen.

    Gil has trouble with in your face strikers reference the Diego fight and fight 1 and 3 with Thompson Pettis is gonna bring some off the wall striking I think he will look to use his wrestling to control the fight and if he does somehow win it will be by lay and pray decision

    Gil has a huge grappling advantage. He can easily win this fight

    Nobody at LW at this point "demolishes" Gil. He is a tough fight for anybody. I think it's a pretty even fight. Standing you have to give Pettis the edge. If Gil can get the takedown Showtime is in for a long and tough night and I can see Melendez finishing him.

    Melendez is the hipster's #1 LW, whereas Pettis actually gets shit done.

    gil won fairly one-sided decision. sanchez had a few moments.

    thompson is tough, tough dude and is underrated.

    No, no he doesn't. Pettis has good grappling. Stylistically this is a pretty good match-up for Pettis. But no one demolishes Melendez.

    Lol. Anyway, Pettis finishes Gil. Striking defense too good, faster, kicks harder, and they both have great chins. Pettis via corner stoppage R4.
