All we end up doing is hypothesizing who the true champ is.
I would love to see Melvin v. Stevenson but I don't think people are going to be thinking Cocky kid v. Seasoned Veteran Wrestler...I mean, weren't they on the same season of TUF? Melvin is cocky, ridiculously cocky. But I still like Melvin more then Stevenson because I think Joe is smug. I hate smug.
Melvin has unquestionable talent, he is a force. I question his intellingence. No one talks about it because of Melvins devasting KO body punch last fight, but he had a chance to finish it first round and started celebrating and next thing you know, this guy has his back!!!! If that happened with any of the people were talking about here, he would have been done.
