cote, griffen , lietes and lutter would probably be favorites against MM as well

I saw him preparing before the Filho fight at AACC in Tokyo, and his ground game did not look bad at all, very explosive and good defensive stuff.

either way, i would rather see anderson v melvin over anderson v belfort or marquardt2. i think melvin is fast & strong enough to give anderson trouble. and dont get me wrong. i think anderson would win but it would be an exciting fight.

Faster? I think not. It's all about the game plan. Taking down stout, exploiting weaknesses. Anderson=BB Bjj, Stout, subpar ground game. Styles make fights. Even Marquardt would give Manoef trouble.

Melvin has been subbed 4 times in 30 fights, subbed by Fihlo, Mousasi, Yoon and Akiyama

it's not like he's gotten submitted by kimbo in his MMA career. guys like mousasi and filho have great ground skills.

^^yeah right, mahoef just swings for the fences like an unskilled brawler..LOL..Manhoef is an animal standing...he is faster, more explosive than Anderson but Silva is more would be a great fight to watch but i think Melvin would win if it stayed standing... lets not forget that Anderson took Curtis Stout down when they fought and Manhoef is 10 times the striker that Curtis is..

I think Melvins standup is exciting, but I disagree with him having great odds. Anderson is too elusive for Melvin and would pick him apart. Melvin is tailor made for Anderson. 10 out of 10 is hyperbolic but Anderson is on another level in mma striking from Melvin. And I dont think that Melvin puts Nate or Hendo away easily standing.
