Beating Thomson who was coming off an injury and a really long layoff followed by beating an incredibly overrated Aoki (remember that guy that just got KTFOed by a mid level K1 kickboxer in an mma round?) does not make you the number two lw in the world. His best win is a split decision over Guida in 2006, who is a solid gatekeeper in the UFC, nothing else. Also, when did Kawajiri become top ten? His best win is thomson, he has a loss to Gomi and a draw with Caol Uno. Someone remind me of how well those two have done in the UFC. I get that Melendez is talented, but his resume isnt as impressive as everyone is trying to make it out to be.
