Melendez shouldn't get a title shot right away, he should fight the top UFC LW contender and if he wins then he should get a shot at Bendo because he is a champion....

This. That would be beyond sick if/when it happens.

His whole career thus far is based off a good performance over Alverez...another highly overrated fighter. Chandler started gassing half way through that fight...that won't fly vs. the Pettis', Bendo's, and Diaz's of the UFC. Chandler is well-rounded but does nothing real well.

Alverez would get dropped and finished in the UFC. Chandler would lose decisions in my opinion.

As for Gil, I'm not sure. Everyone wants to jump off he wagon because many feel Thompson won that last fight. I don't think he would beat the champ right now either. But would't mind him getting a shot.
Lol he never gassed, get off the UFC's nuts. this is the same bullshit when Bendo fought Miller.

Even though nearly all of us are guilty of it, you need to stop looking at records and evaluate fighters skills.

Chandler is a nightmare match up for Diaz,Miller etc.

The UFC's

Looking at records? I have watched plenty of Chandler's fights. He did slow down in the 3rd round, don't give me that crap. He slowed down in terms of elite LWs. Bendo, Frankie, Pettis, nor Nate would have slowed down that early. He was diving for ankles while Alverez easily defended them.

I said he is a good prospect. But right now I believe he would get easily beat by most of the "top" LWs in the world. Bendo, Maynard, Pettis would all wreck him in my opinion. His boxing and lack of length would hurt him vs. Nate. He would easily take Nate down and Nate would most likely sub him.

I don't see how any of this is crazy. He just focking fought Gono...Gono was on a 2 fight losing streak vs. bums. He beat Held...a 19 year old kid. Pitbull is ok, I guess...he had 1 real impressive win and it was vs. Alverez.

Frankie Edgar works Alverez all day in practice. Frankie is another who would wreck Chandler.

I hope Chandler mans up and tries to get into the UFC once his contract runs out so we can see.

Right this second he isn't an elite LW in my opinion. If that is "hanging off the UFC's nuts" then so be it.

Melendez is very very good and basically the opposite fighter to Nate. Nothing Bendo did vs Nate will work vs Gil.

Interesting match up. Bendo won me over in the last fight, showed a great mixed skill set regardless of what I think of his personality.

I love Benson Henderson. He's by far my favorite fighter in the UFC. I would be ecstatic to see him fight Melendez, but I really want to see him avenge that loss to Pettis.

This is only semi-relevant, but Alvarez says he only trains for 1 round, I don't know if he can finish a lot of the UFC guys in that time.

The lighter weights in Bellator are truly stacked, I wish the UFC could just sign them all.
