I thought that was pretty fucking bad ass.
FINALLY!

--

“My hand is healed and I’m 100 percent ready,’’ said Melendez, a highly decorated wrestler and Pride Bushido star who turns 29 on April 12. “I want to prove I’m the No. 1 fighter at 155 in the world. Kawajiri is one of the best anywhere. This is going to be a hard, excellent fight and I am looking forward to it. I don’t want to leave any doubt this time around. I’m ready to rip.’’

The confrontation between Melendez, a Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu stylist who re-upped with STRIKEFORCE in February, and Kawajiri, a former Shooto welterweight champion, will be a rematch of a fight that Melendez won on a close, unanimous decision on Dec. 2006.

Is that some kind of herpes flare up Gilbert's got on his lip?

Should I put money on Melendez? He beat Tawajiri by decision last time but how much has he progressed as a fighter? I want to make some sure bets on one sided fights like Eddie Alvarez this wkend

this is exactly what the world needs for MMA to be truly understood by the public. I mean at some point people are gonna want to see more talent and now that the UFC has added another 150 fighters to their roster the matchups are just going to get better and better as the sport becomes more and more mainstream. The best part is that there are so many up and coming Super Star personalities and fighting styles. Plus I'm just happy that this is being looked upon in a positive light because this forum has so many douche trolls that it is really great to have this subject discussed without all the shit-storm of assclowns stomping a great topic into dust. I also wonder how long the UFC is planning on doing this. I didn't think it was a bad setup when the WEC was running I actually liked it alot after Zuffa purchased it and started making better match-ups. Now that they have another whole league I think it is a good idea to keep them separate as long as they keep it equal. I think we would all win with that setup. I want this to be real but I just don't see Dana allowing this to happen. I think that he truly wants everything under one banner and I don't blame him, this guy built the company and destroyed anyone who tries to fuck with him so I would never question a move he is gonna make or why. I just think it is great what they have done and now that the UFC is embracing Strikeforce and showcasing it by making it front page news I think it shows good intentions for the future.

I like Melendez but I think that Edgar, Miller, and Maynard will give him fits.

UFC would never co-promote with SF it would water down the UFC brand and confuse fans of the "UFC" who still think Royce Gracie is the baddest man on the plant. What we might see is the UFC buying out SF contracts early to get the fights we want to see. That is up to Lorenzo.
