Yeah, there are people that don't rank Melendez as number two in the world but I'm not the only one that disagree with you. The professionals that rank the top ten fighters have Melendez as number two in the world only under Edgar. Incedently I agree with them as the lightweight ranking picture is much different now!

He is top 5 for sure. There is no way to judge right now. If there was an 8 man tournament he would be one of the favorites for sure. But overall, I think BJ matches up well with the most LW's and would probably be the favorite. Edgar is #1 cuz he beat "the man" twice. It doesn't make him the best LW. It just means he matches up well with BJ. And Maynard would lose to BJ,Gil, and Alvarez. The rankings are weird at lw. Tough to gauge.

1. Edgar - beat Jim miller, Tyson Griffin, Sean Sherk, BJ twice, and lossed and tied Maynard

2. Maynard- undefeated and has 2 big wins over Kenny and a younger Edgar. He is only ranked this high cuz of his record and his fights against Edgar.

3. BJ- the most talented LW fighter, has beaten a lot of tough guys. Its just Edgar is his kryptonite. But he would beat any other ranked LW.

4. Melendez- tough guy with good wrestling and solid striking. Lots of good wins and could be ranked higher and I wouldn't have a problem with it.

5. Alvarez- dangerous guy who may be the best of them all. I'm hoping he either comes to the UFC or fights Gilbert

Best of the Rest

Kenny Florian- very good fighter, lots of good wins, and he finishes fights

Kawajirri- many thought he was washed up(me), but this guy is truly a beast right now

Clay Guida- as much as I don't like his style, he is a grinder and on a roll

Shinya Aoki- has some good wins. But if he was in the UFC he would get the Melendez treatment

Melendez could definately hang with if not beat Florian. I can see Guida being an even closer fight against Melendez. Melendez can face Kawajirri outside of the UFC unless he is signed!
