Could we see the new LW Champ tonight?

I think either of these guys are future Lightweight champs here but the future will be "The Young Assassin" Melvin Guillard. I like Stevenson but he is going to have to wait after Guillard knocks him out tonight! The only thing I am not sure about though is if he is going to do it in Rick Davis style or Gabe Ruediger style.

Neither will beat sherk anytime soon. Sherk will hold the title for the forseable future unless BJ Penn decides to take the belt. And Daddy will sub Melvin.

I not so sure about that, Sherk is a good champ but I think some these guys could definitley give him a run for his money.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Ya know Melvin isn't so bad of a wrestler, if he gets past Joe I'd think he'd make a great matchup for Sherk assuming he gets through Hermes.

Sherk and Guillard are both great wrestlers and they're both lightning fast. Sherk would have the edge on wrestling and Guillard with the edge on striking capability. If Guillard shows us an improved match with Joe tonight as far as his gameplan I think he'll be the one to give Sherk a run for his money in the future. I know I might be thinking ahead I'm just basing on how Guillard's improved, we'll find out tonite.

Also you have to look at what GSP did to Sherk and I am not making any comparision but if there was any lightweight that you could compare to GSP with his stroking it is probaly Guillard. Also I wouldn't mind possibly seeing a match between Franca and Guillard.

Franca is a sloppy striker who leaves himself open way to much. I honestly dont see him having a chance against Sherk. I think hes a decent fighter but Sherks wrestling and takedowns are way to good. 5 rounds of punishment for Hermes is on the horizon.
