Yes they should, international fights are terribly difficult on fighters making cuts. We just had Rony Markes almost die because he couldn't properly cut weight in Brazil. He got into a car accident trying to find a steam room. Anthony Johnson has never missed weight when he's fought close to his camp, now since the UFC "cut" he's arguably the top non-UFC fighter in the world.

As for me being a <ahem> Sanchez dick rider funny how he's over the hill after one fight when the previous three were FOTN's. You could also argue that he beat Jake Ellenberger or should have as had it gone five rounds Ellenberger would have lost.

And if Sanchez looks good or even beats Melendez he's likely going to end up in the top ten... it's not that hard to crack the 155 ten, the next guy fighting for the title was on facebook this time last year fighting a cut fight.

Sanchez does not deserve a fight with Gilbert at this point.

Since 2009 Sanchez is 1-5 in his last 6 in my book.

Gomi, Kampmann, Ellenberger, Penn and Hathway all beat him.

Whoa whoa, ANthony Johnson is arguably the top non UFC fighter in the world? I see this conversation is over.

They were FOTNs because Sanchez is a crazy man and defends punches with his face. When he gets beat up and shows his mean face, he is given FOTNs.

Gomi has been awful, straight awful. And everyone and their mothers scored it for Gomi. Sanchez was beat by below average UFC LW and hasn't fought at LW since 2009. Sanchez is overrated as hell. And there is little to no way he beats Melendez. If Sanchez eats enough punches, his fans and UFC heads will claim how good he looked and give him FOTN. He is basically a different version of Clay Guida.

You can give us all these should woulda coulda. I don't play that game though.

Yea the Anthony Johnson comment was a gem!

How the hell is this guy able to fight a month later after getting injured? If he can fight a month later he should just fight Aldo a month prior for ****s sake.

Hopefully Aldo gets his LW title shot after beating KZ and Pettis has to wait some more for being a moron. Everyone wanted to see Pettis fight Hendo to begin with.

In all due respect Gomi has been improving in the last 3 fights. He's turning things around, he's never going to be his old self but still, give him a bit more respect.

How can you tell someone to give Gomi more respect when you just blatantly disrespected Pat Barry in another thread?

Pettis is slipping into Hendricks territory here.


Just keep it shut my friend, it's your own fault you havent fought for a title in the UFC yet.
