Thomson lands so much more effectively when he goes into bezerker mode after Melendexz lands a good shot. I think Thomson needs to make this more of a brawl because Gil is winning the mma fight.

I mean, Thompson has nothing to lose at this point. In my mind, he's down 3 rounds, albeit the 1st was pretty close. He needs to let it go and rush like you said.

Melendez needs to stop taking him down next to the cage. Thompson uses it to walk right up.

Dammit Thompson should go all Wandyish on Gil because that is what is working for him raw aggression and making Melendez move backwards. When Thompson becomes the hunter for this brief exchanges he actually gets the better of them.

Damn, training with the Diaz bro's and Shields probably just saved Melendez.

Big round for Thomson there and a major confidence boost that will send Josh out with bad intentions in the 5th.

Thompson easily won the last two rounds clearest of the fight IMO, but somehow I still think.

I could see a upset here. The first round is the deciding factor, but I had the 1st for Melendez by a hair.
