I actually don't think K.J. is a chump. He's got solid boxing, but that really is it.

Gilberts MT, grappling, chin and pace makes him a superior fighter. Plus he's defeated some serious competition showing his ability to take out very tough fighters.

I think he'd defeat K.J.

Question Gilbert

Well how difficult is his road going to be to Melendez?

He's going to have to at least make it through Thompson. But you still got Gurgel floating around as well.

People always forget that Noons picked Diaz apart standing just because he won by cut it seems to slip everyones mind.

His boxing is solid, I'm not taking that away from him.

But Gilbert is a complete fighter. He mixes his punches with kicks and elbows, has great takedowns, top control, wrestling and GNP, excellent cardio, a good chin and BJJ defense.

He's displayed a huge arsenal of tools in his fights. Never been finished and avenged the only two losses on his record. I just see Gilbert on another level right now.
