GEGARD "THE DREAM CATCHER" MOUSASI
Well he sees a guy calling out his stable mate and also calling out his last opponent probably sounds a little low to him. It is also true that there aren't many contenders within Strikeforce so Melendez wants a challenge. He is a motivated fighter and I'm sure at some point he's heading to the UFC!
I really want to see him vs. Alvarez. And Kos already showed what a good wrestler will do to Daley. Plus he really doesn't get a whole lot if he beats Daley except for a better resume to take to the UFC.
Yeah, plus the pressure would be on Daley cause if he lost it would not dode well about his title shot against Diaz. If he lost to Diaz's stable mate then it means he's not worthy of fighting for Diaz's title. If Melendez were to loose it just means he fought up a weightclass!
