I missed the 1st round. It was 2-2 from what I've seen. I have no idea who they give it to.

That's how it should have been scored. Fans in the stands just took the last 2 rounds to heart, they forget Melendez won the first 3.

I think Nate was talking out his ass a few weeks back. Melendez doesn't even look like he'd be top 5 in the UFC.

Exactly the decision was fair but the issue with the fans is that Thomson won the last two round convincingly and Melendez won the first 3 by a slight margin. If you ignored the unified rules and judged the fight as a whole I believe Thomson would have won.

FITCH SIGHTING!!!

Melendez pretty much said it best though, he's in a lose-lose situation, they need to get him out of Strikeforce.

Wow... Milendez' post fight comments were incredibly douchey. Talking about how he won the 5th round by controlling with strikes from the bottom and how the fight against Thompson was a "lose-lose" situation because he wouldn't grow his brand. What a god damned tool.

He deserved the win - barely - but he's a tool and would die against the upper-middle tier of UFC lightweights.

I don't get why Nate always is polishing all the other Gracie fighters balls, honestly I think Nate is the best fighter in the Cesar Gracie gym. Better than Gil, better than Shields and better than Nick. Nick may have just as good of striking and a better BJJ game but Nate puts it all together much better IMO.

I think he just has that little brother mentality since he's the young one of the group. I too think he would beat Gilbert and probably finish him in a few rounds. I wouldn't go as far to say he's better than Nick and Jake since they're bigger than him unless you mean on a P4P basis. Even then, you have to put Nick ahead of Nate.
