No idea how good Josh Thomson is.
Hopefully not so good so I get some points in the NPFFL?
He had some injuries that really set him back. He didn't fight at all in 2011 due to injures but he looked good in both his fights since then. He beat KJ Noons convincingly and gave Melendez a hell of a fight.
But I have always thought it was a matchup problem for Melendez. Kind of like KJ Noons is a tough matchup for Nick Diaz. Lesser fighters might matchup better with them but they give those guys hell for whatever reason.
