With melvin it's also torso and hips. His arms and legs aren't massive, which is what allows him to move so quickly. He has really strong abs and hips which allow him to use judo throws effectively and help him to move past guards once he's on the ground.

What really makes me look at his form is that KO punch that he delivered to Davis, he twists his hips through and pushes with his shoulders, form that kinda resembles Muhammed Ali (it's not because he's black). Generally he's a well rounded fighter and that's what I like to see.

Maybe at some point we'll get to see Guillard v Leben. Now that would be an asskicking that I'd pay $40 to watch.
